OK, I was doing some thinking that was started by another thread in which some of the AR guys were trespassing on our side making condescending comments.
Anyways, one of them made the comment that by the time you go through all the hassle and expense of making a Krink 922r compliant, you might as well just go the SBR route. That got me thinking.
So I did some calculations.
16 countable parts, no more than 10 of which can be imported. Since either way you will be using a USA receiver, I'll ignore that in the cost.
The US parts I would use would be:
Fake can (1 part) $125+ ship (I think this was what I paid)
Gas Piston (1 part) $20+ ship
FCG (3 parts) $30 + ship
Total not including shipping to go 922r: $175
SBR via ATF tax stamp: $200
Difference: a whopping $25 and a few months anxiously awaiting arrival
Am I missing something?
You could make it a pistol and save the 175$ and call it a day.
nope your not missing somethang
its gonna cost about 150 to get a krink legal
and 200 for tax stamp
if you have the cash and dont ever wanna resale
build it into a pistol
and when the paperwork comes threw open the holes for the folder :)
