Hi!

Do any of you own any Krinks by Ohio Rapid Fire?
What do you think? High Quality, suggestions to change, They build a great AK, but do they build a great Krink? ANY information would be greatly appreciated.

I had the pleasure of firing one and all I can say is that the quality is excellent and that you would not be disappointed.

Couldn't let this go by. I've got one. They built it on request, and did within a time limit. Simply outstanding fit and finish. I opted for the PB5 fake can, till I can SBR it. I love it. Its a short range gun, but man, what a blaster. If you really want a Krink, you simply can't go wrong. I can't recommend it highly enough. In fact I need to get around to writing a review. I hear InRange does an excellent one too. One of the best $1k I've spent. I'm a very satisfied customer. You will be too, I gurantee it.

OK, I have a (stupid) question.

What makes a Krink special?
Or, in other words, what features make an AK into a Krink?

Sorry for the ignorance, I've been playing with ARs for fifteen+ years, but I've never even fired an AK. The closest to an AK was the SKS I once owned. (I know - not the same thing).

I'm just curious. I'm in for the SEAK deal, and I'm excited about it. I also want to get an AK in 7.62 x 39, but I know NOTHING about them. I guess that I need to take a scouting mission down to ORF and gather some intel.

To answer your questions....

1. Because Krinkovs are just too cool.....

2. Watch your fingers on the handguard....Krinkovs and AKs in general like to burn your fingers...

3. Congratulations on deciding to buy a SEAK. You won't find a nicer AK....

4. Last but not least...everyone deserves a field trip to ORF...

Krinkfreak,

So, how are ORF's Krinks? I want one in 5.45 to match the SEAK. Anything I should ask for special?

What Raptor isn't telling you is it took a can of pepper spray and several blows from tire iron to get my Krinkov back... before he played with my Krinkov he wasn't even an AK man... now, the boy is just plain scary!

I love my ORF Krink!!
Ive got 2 ORF rifles so far, and am happy.

JTR8541,

Damn! I thought I had few guns...man! I'll have to show my wife that picture - then maybe she'll leave me alone!! Very sweet...Although, I believe I will need the fake 'can' supressor on my mine to increase the bbl length to 16".

What is the over length on a krink with that 16" bbl?

Unfortunately, none of those weapons are mine. Wish they were.

Those are just pics I’ve kept on file, inspiration you might call it.

I have no idea about the 16-inch stuff. I’m an avid fan of the SBR and feel that it is worth my extra $200 to have them. I don’t know if they’re legal in WI, you might want to look into it though.

Best regards, J

My question still stands - Other than a 'skeleton' stock, what is different on a Krink vs. a standard AK?

Come on, help a newbie out here fellas!

Well the sites for one are different.
The piston is shorter.

Well, I just got off the phone with Todd @ ORF. The 5.45 krink is purchased and should be sent in 2-3 weeks. I went with the black finish w/ pbs5 can. I will post pictures when the new baby arrives! I think one of my AR's is going to get the boot out of my display gun case....

The Krinkov has a shorter barrel, and a hinged top cover.

It's just an AK in a smaller package.

The pictures above show the largest batch of Krinkovs built at one time by InRange of Tennessee. The other photo with the fireball was my buddy shooting an InRange Krinkov at Knob Creek in October.

I own three Krinkovs. One in each caliber. The ORF Krinkov is chambered for 5.56 and shoots like a dream. No need to ask for anything special other than the addition of the side scope mount rail. You never know when you may want to put some type of optics package on your Krinkov.

The one on top is the ORF Krinkov...
