Hello everyone,

I would love to get a shorty Krinkov, but the prices are just so damn high! I also like AMD-65's and they while they are alot cheaper, but they just don't have the coolness of a Krink. So, my idea is to take a nice AMD-65, and chop it WAY down. Of course, to be legal I would get my SBR paperwork approved first. Besides having to probably drill the gas port wide open so the action will cycle, and a lot of metal massaging to cut the handguards down... do you think this is very doable? Has it been done before? I have an MS Paint pic below showing what I would want it to look like when finished. I am interested to hear what smarter gun folks than myself have to say about my idea...

I think that pic looks actually cooler than the Krink.

Accomplise posted a link that you should look into. This shop is just a couple miles from me. Will Hayden builds some outstanding pieces. He built a AMD65 for me that's a real off the wall example. Call these guys, they'll build your dream for you, it's less than you think. I'll reccommend them for anything AK or AR based.

Thanks guys, I have already started talking to Will about it the project. I think that this has the potential to be neater than a Krink, but only by a little, 'cause I REALLY like Krinks. I need to get my FAL up for sale, and quick too. Regards all...

After talking to Will at RedJacket, it looks like he can build the AK I had pictured for about 900 bucks. That is with a sidefolder ACE stock, and a fake can installed until my SBR papers came back. That seems like a helluva deal for what would be essentially a one-off, custom rifle built by a very reputable AK builder. The other idea I had was to have someone cut-down a standard AK-74 to a standard Krink length, change the front sight block and put a set of those neat VMON handguards on it. I saw those on another members weapon and love 'em. Both rifle project ideas are plausible, and doing the 74 might even be a little cheaper than building the cut-down AMD. If I had to make a choice in calibers between 7.62 and 5.45, I think I would go with the 5.45, so you can tell I have a lot of thinking about which way to go.

so if someone was to have that type of AK made, short barrel with the front grip.........would that be considered a SBR or a AOW? tax wise it would still be 200 bucks to make for both, except that a transfer of a AOW would be 5 bucks, and not 200.

If it wasnt stocked from the factory it is considered a pistol, so the forward grip should make it a AOW.

If you wanted to add a stock it would be a SBR.
