:sick: A getting ready to build a krink pistol, which later if I move to a happy state (of residence, not of mind), I will register as a sbr and put on the stock. I am going for the side folding stock as it looks like the rivet holes for the side folder rear trunion and the pistol rear trunion are in the same location, so swapping later sould be easy. Questions: The side folder requires some sort of locking mechanism on the side of the receiver, does anyone have any blueprints to show location or build guide or pictures of how this goes? Second, since the front trunion is bought separate from the barrel, they were not at one time assembled and headspaced, so I would guess you are starting more at zero than with a different build - How do you initially guess how far to press in the barrel? Any other differences between a regular build and a krink? I have searched the forums and can't find these answers - Thanks!

Understand that headspace is first, what I am asking is on a matched barrel/trunion you take apart and then put back together you have a pretty good/usually perfect headspace to test. When using a non-matched trunion and barrel, is there any way to get close in pushing in the barrel to start with, rather than push it it, check, push it more, check, etc? It will be a krink side folder, so need input/diagrams on the location of the forward left side catch for the folding stock, which I want to put on now, even though it will be a pistol.

the prints are one POOKIE's site
Are you dealing with a NEW barrel or a used?
If a used barrel and the trunion are from the same country you can press the barrel in to almost to the prevous spot and check.
But other then that, there is no other way.
That is why I prefer matching # kits

Thanks for the info - probably should have posted this on the newbie part - Where's Pookie's site?
Going to use a kit from kvar, both trunion and barrel are romanian, but I have read some posts that say the shipped krink barrels are new, some say they are used.

Here's a copy of the drawings for the side folder installation:

These pics are too big to post on Gunco (file size is larger than 800 x 800 pixel limit). At this size, they are much easier to read. If the pics don't come through completely, try refreshing the page a couple times. RoadRunner is giving me fits right now and my homepage doesn't want to act in a civilized manner. This happens from time to time, so it shouldn't be a major problem.

I have a drawing with the underfolder dimensions if you would want that for some reason.

Just be sure you don't go the other direction - once a rifle, never a pistol!

Getting ISP service this week so until they are done, site is going up/down :(

To echo the other statements, you do NOT guess at headspace. I've collected some info here:

http://pookieweb.dyndns.org:61129/AK/docs/construction/headspacing.htm

Bottom line is that headspace could be a life-threatening measurement, do not guess! Get some headspace guages & do it right!

Any other differences between a regular build and a krink? I have searched the forums and can't find these answers - Thanks!
A krink is a short AK w/ custom parts. Therefore it won't be identical, there are some additional things. You didn't say, do you have a krink parts kit? You should be able to figure out the parts' fit.

more questions

Anyone know if k-var's krink kits are new parts or dissasembled rifles? Anyone have a set of headspace guages they could let me borrow for a build (7.62)? I know you don't have to worry about us parts count, but what about using the kit AK selective fire fcg parts/bolt? Do you need to exchange them for "semi" versions like you do with ar15 vs m16 parts to stay legal?

The kits are new and have never been assembled. This makes it more difficult for us home builders.

I believe that you are just fine using them as long as you don't drill and install the third pin required for fully automatic functioning.

Also, K-Var doesnt have the folding stock in that goes with the 7.62 kits. They told me via phone that they would ship everything but the stock parts right now and the rest when it comes in. Also, the woman said it would be about a month for the stocks to come in. You might want to give them a call as she wasnt very clear about this.
