Best choice of receivers for Krinkov SBR's
I am fixing to start my first builds, I will be building 2 SBR Krinkov Side Folders and a couple of more as pistols starting with the pistols till my stamps get back for my SBR's. The kits I have are Literaly Brand NEW! They have Never Been Assembled so I will have to get the barrel parts mounted drilled and pinned right and everything else,so I will likely have more questions as I go, but for now I need to choose a pair of receivers, one for a 5.45x39 and one for a 7.62x39
My question is regarding receivers, I am looking at either a "Universal" from Ohio Ordnance that is .048 thousands (1.24 mm thick) and is listed in SGN as "Can be used with underfolders or Side Folders with Modifacation, Chinese and Yugo Sets need extensive modifactions.
The problem is that no one there can tell me anything about what mods are needed!
1) Is it as simple as drillng the extra hole and Milling the slot for the side folder retaining latch or will I have to mill my trunnions down etc????
2) Has anyone used these receivers before?
3) If so how are they to work with?
My second choice is from Global Trades. These are being listed as being the correct receivers for AK74's, Krinkov's, Yugo's, Romananian AKM's etc.
they are 1mm thick, and say nothing about needing any mods to make them fit right.
So again same quesions,
1) Anybody used these receivers before?
2) How are they to work with
3) Do they fit as advertised without any mods?
They are listed as having the correct X and Y axis but I guess I dont know what the OEM thickness is on a Krinkov. So while I know that Global Trades Receiver's are a bit more expensive, for the price of these brand new Krink Kits not to mention $400 for Tax Stamps to build 2 SBR's I want to be sure to get the best receiver's I can even if they cost a bit more to purchase.
I will be building these with the rivets wich are included in the kits but I want them to look like factory produced firearms when I finish.
Any help would be apreciated, sorry for the long post, just trying to get it right the first time!
Thanks for any help, RemMax

First off, if you are "new" to building AK's I would suggest you build several Romi kits first to cut your teeth on before building on these expense models as described. Buy a rec from each and take them for a test drive.
I know my first few builds looked like retarded monkey's built them, so go slow.
I have only built with OOW receivers and stopped after the first two and have used flats from that point forward.
I suggest using the flats from www.ak-builder.com for your SBR projects, if you go the flat direction.
Here are some links for build info too:
good luck and use the search engine located in the top right hand corner of the page for questions, or click the link below:

If this was a kit like the Romy's I'd say give it a try. Since these are all new parts, good luck. Lots of skill is required. My smith quoted me $200 for the build until I said they were all new parts. He said that will cost $500 because of all the extra labor required. If you want the best receiver. use the FIRING LINE milled receiver like I did. Lots more than stamped but AWESOME. It's easy to assemble a gun that was taken apart. It's a whole new ball game using new parts that were never assembled. Spend a little more now. Enjoy it for a lifetime. Good luck. GARY N4KVE

Krinkov kits should be assembled on 1.0mm thick material receivers.
The back end of any non-dedicated receiver will have to be trimmed to allow the insertion of the rear sidefolder block, and to match the angle of the block.
In addition, a hole has to been made on the left side of the receiver for the installation of the latch.
Do a search to find an internet source of the general layout and installation guide for the sidefolder stock parts.
