Why the heck are Krinkovs so expensive!!?? Your getting ALOT LESS bang for your buck in my opinion!

I would say because there are not that many going around.

My guess (someone confirm this though...) is that there are significantly fewer in the international market. The other thing is the huge coolness factor here in the US. So, since they are in much less supply than say a standard AKM kit, and they are so cool, price goes up.

I honestly don't know why short little rifles turn us on so much. Probably in the same software that makes men like the curves of a woman.

Who cares, just go with it....

Can't find any Krink kits for sale, full auto, semiauto paperwork takes a while....

there ya go..........I remember when you can buy the AKS-74U kits for around 300 bucks, and that was expensive. now that they are not available the prices dramatically rise, even if you can find one for sale.

just look at everything else that was once realiatively inexpensive.......I recall the M2 tripod for the 1919 was around 150-200 bucks, and nobody wanted them...........1919 became very plentiful and now those tripod are in demand, but the supply is low, so they are in the 600 dollar plus range.

same with the M1918 belt loader, you couldn't give them away a few years ago.........now they are in the 800 dollar range, and people are snatching them up as soon as they hit the for sale section within a couple of hours

I have a Bulgie Krink. I really like it, but I am just not a big fan of the fake can. I really dont want to go through the agravation of getting my SBR. I may try to trade it for two normal size AKs

it isn't that big of a aggravation, 2 copies of the form 1, 2 passport photos, 2 FD-258 and 2 copies of 5330-20 and 200 bucks.......you already have it built, just a matter of waiting for the approved form 1 to come back and you can take the can off. AKS-74U have more of a coolness factor then a regular AKM.

Everyon waited for the AWB to end, but I had a sneaky suspicion that all the parts were gonna dry up, and I spent a little more (spread out over about a year) it got approved just before the AWB sunsetted, now you can do it with all the pre ban features, but NO PARTS....
