    is the serial # on the trunion or the receiver on the Romainian.
    If it is on the trunion, then you can't move it.

    I am building a krink using a Saiga 223 as a donor rifle.
    I am having the factory saiga barrel turned down to krink specs.

    Romanian as in SAR? that has the serial # on the trunion.

    Check with jnewt (user on here) and ask him.
    I think he was suppose to check with the ATF concerning this.

    On my saiga, I never removed the trunion so I don't have a issue with the ATF.

    your best option is to write the ATF technical branch.........I recall that gunmiths like INRANGE, in the pass have used chinese AKs as donor receivers to build a "krinkov" on them.......I believe that the serial number on the chinese AKs were on the trunion as well.......but again your best bet is to write the ATF branch, something like this I wouldn't take the word of someone on a gun board as to the legality of it

    Yes, they have used chinese ak's as donors, but they keep the trunion and use a barrel bushing on the new barrel.

    You are 100% safe if you use the original trunion that came with the receiver if there is NO serial # on the receiver.

    Heck you could sleeve the barrel and press it to fit, and eliminate any worries whatsoever.

    Yes sir. If the barrel on a RIFLE isn't 16" it is an Short Barreled Rifle; which requires a $200 tax stamp. If you are building a pistol it doesn't matter.

    [QUOTE=DrugRunR]Yes, they have used chinese ak's as donors, but they keep the trunion and use a barrel bushing on the new barrel.Why would you need to bush a barrel when chinese trunions are 19mm and all the other barrels are 22 or 23mm. If anything you would need to turn the barrels down.

    I was thinking of a 22mm barrel in a 23mm trunion. Bushing is only one way - I had to do this when I got dremel-happy with polishing my AMD trunion and literally reamed it larger than 23mm - probably 23.5mm or something, but it became a slip-fit. THe barrel would fall out if you pointed it downward.

    Now I suspect that much clearance would make a Bulgy 22mm barrel behave the same in a Romy 23mm trunion. Going on that assumption, you could use the same trick I did to fix my loose AMD trunion - weld a few beads along the axis of the barrel and file down - cautiously. If you do it correctly, the barrel won't be canted, or would be canted so slightly that you'll never notice. OTOH if, for example, you welded a bead only along one side, I would expect the barrel to be slightly canted in relation to the trunion (and obviously the receiver). It would WORK, but would not look pretty.

    Look about halfway down for the barrel fix...
