Default Can you build a krink on AKM receiver?

Looking into this parts kit for possibly a future build:
https://armsofamerica.com/wbpfullyhe...1-2-1-1-1.aspx

I see it is 7.62x39.... does this mean I can use just a regular AKM receiver such as the 80% receivers from ak-builder that come heat treated and with rails welded? Also, can I use regular AK mags with it? And will I need a different jig for drilling the fire control group?

Yes.
Yes.
No


A "Krinkov" is nothing more than a standard AKM with a shorter barrel & folding stock.

I think AK-Builder has or had pistol kits for AKM's.

They might even be slightly shorter than these.

Well he still has the gas pistons but it looks like he might be out of the barrels, which I think are 9.5 inches long. (maybe 9 inches)

Thanks guys! So it’s basically like building a full sized AK (which I have done before)... just with a shorter barrel and gas piston?

I guess my next question is what is the difference between a 4.5mm and 5.5mm folding stock?

The Russian 5.5 mm has a different mounting angle and a different receiver angle.

There are some other 5.5 mm ones that have the angle as the 4.5 mm ones and use the same receiver, or they may clone the Russian 5.5 mm , but that is less common I think.

All of the 4.5 mm ones should be made to the same dimensions as each other.

Yes, but you will have to modify the rear end to fit the particular side folding stock trunnion you are putting on it. The front will also need a window and pin hole in it for the latching mechanism that holds it folded.

I just finished building an 11” barreled Frankenstein AK pistol using Bulgarian, Russian, Yugo, Taiwan, Polish and U.S. spare parts laying around on a Childers CG1 Kyber Pass receiver.
