I have been asked to by a friend to help him build a Krinkov kit he bought. Unfortunately for me he bought a an Ohio Ordnance 5.45 receiver . I am wondering if anyone has a downloadable template for the receiver? Oh and any helpful hints would be welcome as this is the first time I have done a Krink.

What part of the gun do you need a template for?

The reciver will work with minor modifications.

Open up mag well....Dremil or file.

Grind down ejector.

It's already a 5.45 receiver.  A Yugo "Krinkov" is not really a real Krinkov, so I'm assuming that you're talking about building a 5.45 krink.

As you know,  building an AK (Krink especially) is a lot different from 'building' (aka assemblying) an AR.

The standard 5.45 receiver will need quite a few modifications.  You have to take into account that there is a folding stock with a specific trunion that is not used by other stocks.  In addition, there is a front latch mechanism that will hold the stock closed.  The front latch mech is located under the front trunion and protrudes out the left side of the receiver.  

Here are the templates and therefore the actual answer to the OP's questions:  Krink templates/blueprints  They are from the gunco.net library.

OTOH, if you're talking about building one of those Yugo M92's, you're on you own.  You're better off just buying an NDS receiver (if you can get one).  You're probably better off getting an NDS receiver either way-

It will work with a little modification.   Here's another problem though, does he plan to extend the barrel to 16 inches permanently?  His receiver was probably registered as a rifle, so unless he SBR's the gun, if he uses it to build a pistol, its a Federal crime your helping him with.

your better off getting the right reciever unless you are really good at sheetmetal work. like mentioned the templates are out there, front and rear, given you already have a 5.45 reciever

plus like the other chap stated..........best make sure you are an SBR state !!
