Krinker Plinker AK-74 Conversion for the Ruger 10/22 Rifle

by Steve Johnson

The Krinker Plinker is a kit that includes everything but the receiver, trigger group, and their internal parts to convert a Ruger 10/22 rifle into a replica AK-74U Krinkov assault rifle. The kit includes a new sixteen inch heavy barrel, AK-style pistol grip and handguard, an extended magazine release, a fake sound suppressor (silencer), a good set of adjustable peep sights, a Picatinny rail for mounting optics, hardware, and a Krinkov style side-folding stock. The metal parts are either black anodized aluminum, or black oxide coated steel. The kit also comes with a good set of illustrated instructions for installing the kit on your Ruger 10/22 receiver.

    I'm also Having trouble with the stock that came with the Krinker Plinker that I bought off about a year ago. The dang button doesn't seem to work to make it fold up. If any of you know about another stock that seems to work could you tell me. I was also wondering how the person above did that paint job. My respect man it is awesome!

    Its is acually cheaper now to buy a brand new AK-22 than to buy this conversion kit, just my 2 cents.
