    Does anyone have input or experience with the Krebs variants? They look great on his web site and should be a quality gun. The only experience I have with AK47's is Polytech. Thanks in advance. John.

    I have to admit, Mark's work does look impressive. I believe the AK-109 variant is actually a post-ban AK made from a Saiga Hunter reciever. I also believe he's the only guy out there with an ATF legal- production Krinkov... but I could be wrong. I've heard his AK's can shoot 2.5MOA with 7.62X39 milsurp. If this is true, then I'm really impressed!

    The Krinkov is a submachine gun sized AK, with a barrel about 10 inches long. I do not see how they could be classified as anything but a "short barreled rifle".

    I think his version uses a 16", but in every other way is like the Krinkov. Like the HK-94 to the MP5. I must admit, I get a little perturbed by people naming their conversions after guns that they are not. Like Hesse sticking different sites on their Saiga converts and calling them Valmets, or adding a pretty lousy thumbhole stock and calling it a Dragunov.

    Well, the primary characteristics that distinguish the krinkov from the AK-74 are the short barrel, expansion chamber, and folding stock. The short barrel is illegal. The folding stock is banned. The expansion chamber does not work on a legal length barrel. It may even be considered an illegal sound suppressor by the BATF. So, exactly what is Krebs selling?
