I am contemplating building a 5.45 krink using parts from a ak74 kit, and was wondering exactly which "krink" specific parts I need to obtain?

Barrel Assmbly ( with front site base and rear hinge base)
Top Cover w/sight
Gas piston
Handguard retainer
upper/lower handguards

Am I missing something?

Thanks

That about covers it.
Don't forget the gas tube and the krink flash hider.

it would be simplier just to say which parts are the same between the both of them.....

recoil spring, bolt, carrier...is the same except on the 74U the charging handle is a bit shorter then on the 74, , trunion, pistol grip.

The recoil spring is a bit different on the Russian guns.. The Bulgarians didnt copy that.. The Russian recoil spring has a bigger lip on the end (part you push in to take it down).

thanks Stottman.......didn't know the russian ones are different, since there is none here that ever came in, I was comparing my bulgarian 74U to my bulgarian 74.......nice to know, just in case I ever come accross one that is a bit different .

you guys skipped couple main parts
theres the hinge for top cover and the special pins that hold it and the gas tube on
and the biggy wich was said but i dont think you realize the prob wit it
GAS TUBE its basicly impossible to find

Would this gas tube work?

It appears that they have all of the necessary parts to convert a ak74.

no, the 74U gas tube isn't like that one at all. it's too long

That figures... I need a aks74u krink kit...

I've had Bulgy Krink kit that I've had squirreled away for years.
For some reason it was sent to me without a recoil spring. I asked around and was told that any AK recoil spring will work. After reading this thread I am confused. Will my bulgy Krink accept:

a) any AK recoil spring

b) only a Bulgy AK spring

c) only a Bulgy Krink spring


I know to be 100% "correct" I would need (b) or (c), but now that Krink parts are so hard to get, I would be happy with (a)!!

^^ I'd like to know this as well....I am missing a recoil spring/guide rod for my 5.45 Bulgarian Krinkov Kit and am not sure which one will work.

Link Posted: 8/16/2005 12:42:46 PM EDT
any AK recoil spring will work, the 74U recoil spring is the same length as a AKM and a 74.
Link Posted: 8/16/2005 12:46:03 PM EDT
Huh, I would have thought that the springs would have been different between calibers...

my recoil spring on my 74U is the same as the one in my SAR 3, which is the same as the one in my AKM, which is the same as the one in my 74, which is the same as the one that came with my M92 parts kit.

Can someone post a pic of the difference in the charging handles? Im interested in seeing how much difference there is between the two.

TIA
