View Full Version : Legalities of building a Krinkov?
08-11-2004, 12:39 PM
I've seriously been considering building a SBR Krinkov. But, I've read so many contradicting statements over what is needed to be done to comply with this law and that law that I am completely confused. From what I've read, it sounds like the best thing to do is to wait until the 94 AWB dies and then build to avoid a lot of the confusion.
Can someone address the issues involved with building an original looking SBR Krinkov pre and post 94 AWB. I've heard arguments that you need to build on a preban receiver and/or use compliance parts. What is the definite low down on this type of build?

Josh, I think the biggest problem is in the barrel length, it must be brought to legal length or you would have to get a tax stamp exemption. My biggest problem after that is the price. Have you seen the price of those kits? They aint cheap, and for what, after compliance with the law you have nothing but another AK that you could have gotten away with a cheaper kit. Jack

It's tax stamp SBR thing and it's only legal to rurn a pre-ban into a SBR is what I understand, but then again I'm no expert.
You can do the fake can thing on regular barrel for any AK and it's legal.
The parts to make a Krink are toatally outrageous in price and not worth to me, but one could get creative and do it themselves too.

I've just been thinking about "other" options I have in the AK building arena and have thought of a Krinkov. There are people who have built them, or had them built, but not many. I have just been trying to think of something unique and different from the main stream AK's that are being built.
So, I would have to buy a pre ban receiver, strip the parts, and then use the receiver with the Krinkov parts kit to build it? Would this apply after the AWB sunsets too? I was also contemplating the SBR setup by paying the stamp. After that, though, one would only have to pay the $5 transfer fee, right?

No, I believe the AWB to prohibit the building of an assault weapon whether it is on a preban weapon or not. Further, do not confuse the AWB and the NFA. Restrictions on short barrel weapons will remain after AWB sunsets. Further, I don't believe the tax stamp is five dollars I think it is two hundred. Jack

Tax stamp is $200 and it's partof the 1934 NFA act. It will not go away for sure.
Many localities won't even allow SBR's when the fed does.
