Is this Bulgarian AKS-74U kit the most authentic around?

Depends on what type.

Bulgarian, I would think so.

Russian, for the most part. One would need to replace the handguards (with a vented set), pistol grip, and the folding stock with the correct Russian parts.

That's what I want to do. Bulgarian to somewhat-Russian AKS-74U Krink.

I know several companies are doing turn key Bulgarian AKS74Us, made with SLR105s and Bulgarian AKS74U parts....

Simply add Russian stock set/parts, and be pretty much there.

I thought the later Russian Krinks had non-vented HGs like the Bulgarians? See Spooky's pic above.

They do, however they also replaced other parts like an updated FSB, Bolt carrier, etc.. Bulgarians copied the earlier version

Is that an SBR? Why have the US made grip on it if so? No sense spending all that money on a "Russian" AKSU build and then using an incorrect grip.

Here is my progress on my demilled Russian kit:

Custom trunnion that I scanned in off the original on the left and reworked slightly so that the last 4 would be usable for a template to also engrave the bolt too(worked perfectly): Left one is the original demilled, right one is the uber-expensive one I had custom engraved from my multiple hours of Photoshop work.


Here is the reassembled punch press barrel assemly:


Now all I need is the receiver. I have a SLR-105 on hand, but I want to see what Harlan and DCI come out with before I commit to building on the 105.

Here is a close up of the grip, its not USA.

Link Posted: 3/4/2006 8:37:24 AM EDT
ok -- doesn't look russian though either. is it? looks bulgarian pattern, which made me assume it was k-var.
Link Posted: 3/4/2006 8:49:58 AM EDT
The kit had Russian wood, but it was one of the early Bulgarian demilled rifles.
Link Posted: 3/4/2006 8:53:16 AM EDT
ok -- that makes sense then. Stottman can probably hook him up with the right grip. I have a brown Tula grip and a shiney plum Tula grip -- I haven't decided which to use, but it will probably be the plum one.

He wants it left as a Bulgarian Krinkov, as the kit was received. He is having a Russian built to go with it.
Link Posted: 3/4/2006 9:51:52 AM EDT
ahhh -- lucky SOB!

When you do your graphics work for the trunnion engraving, does it matter what size it is or can the engraving system adjust it if needed?
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 3:55:27 AM EDT
i 'm pretty sure it can be scaled, although i suspect there can be some loss of quality if you go too far either direction. you might want to contact steve sawyer about that.
