I believe that Kvars kits areparts which are taken right off the production line before completion. That means they were never actually weapons. So , I believe that no gas port has been drilled in the barrels, and that other "final fitting" procedures have not been done.
I know that Todd, over at Ohio RapidFire has kits coming in.
These kits are "take offs" so that means they were actually weapons at one time. Easier build in my opinion.
Todd's will probably be less expensive. He is a top notch seller also.
they do have the gas port drilled.I just got an aks-47s kit from k-var. I haven't started on it yet but inspecting it I think the pressing of the gas block and front trunnion is the hardest part. the rest is like any other build. and it's really nice having all brand new parts.
This weeks Shotgun News has a article about a Krink built out of a K-var kit.(mentioned by name)
It's a pretty cool article. For example, did anybody know that the name Krinkov or Krink for short was coined here in the US, and it's exact origin is unclear.
If you asked a Russian about a Krink, it's unlikely that he would have any idea what you are talking about.
