Any of you gentlemen ever suppress your Krinkov?

I’ve been looking at different web sites for suppressors and came across a Krinkov suppressor in both 7.62 and 5.45 on the Advanced Armament Corp. site.

I barely have the cash to buy ammo and this list of stuff I need gets longer every day.

Best regards, J

Unless yor Krink is a pre-ban or Full-auto, or AOW, you can't put a suppresor on it...Our freinds at the ATF says a suppresor is also a flash hider...sorry

Fake suppressors are okay, right? As long as the rifle meets the length requirements and the fake suppressor is welded on, it should be legal...check you local laws foist!

wow, that link showed a REAL silencer. Definately illegal. You need special papers for that baby!

The A.A.C. Krinkov suppressors are great! My 5.45 can has over 5,000 rds. through it. It's a little discolored but funtions fine. The 7.62 is still a little harsh but much better than without it.

Good suppressors are really cool! A guy was at my range last month with Rem700 in 30.06 that had a big can on the end. Pulling the trigger made a sound like disconnecting the chuck from an air tool, followed a second later by a very loud crack as the bullet hit the rock wall several hundred yards out. Impressive...

even if you did the papers putting it on a post-ban semi auto assualt weapon would be illegal, it's also a flash hider...

Do you think having a bit longer barrel like the AK-104 would help with quieting that bad boy down?

Suppressors are legal in 35 States; one just has to jump through all the hoops required by the ATFe.

As far as legalities go. A person would…

Need to have a registered MG. More than likely that’s not going to be possible for me.

Need to have a pre-ban weapon, then you can have a flash hider=suppressor

Use a thumbhole stock so there is no pistol grip protruding conspicuously below the receiver. A la M1A

What we really need though is the AWB to go away and leave us alone. That’s probably the only way I’ll ever wind up with a suppressed AK.

My plan would be: buy a post-ban weapon now, pray to the gun gods that the ban goes away in 11 months. Register the weapon as an SBR, have it converted into a Krink or 104/105. purchase suppressor(s) for new SBR(s)

Actually, It would be louder. The bullet developes more velocity and is harder to suppress.

Just thinking about the arfs.

My little Gemtech M4-96C on a 10-inch barrel is still quite loud, but on a 20-inch barrel it is much quieter (to the shooter)

Out of either barrel it is going to be supersonic so you’re going to get the sonic crack.

I was thinking along the same line as a 10-inch unsuppressed arf is much louder than a 20-inch unsuppressed arf (haven’t had too much experience with the AKs).
