    Should I cut down a full size rifle or buy a pistol and add a stock? I'd like to build one but I wasn't sure if the receiver on the AK pistols will accept a buttstock. So who's done it and how hard was it? Also any info on how to form a trust and the application procedures would be great. Thanks.

    You'll have to grind off the rivets and replace the rear trunion (sp?)

    As far as a trust, you can use a trust creator (can be purchased at office depot) or have a lawyer draw one up for you. Have it notarized, send it, a declaration of citizenship form, 2 copy's of your signed form 1, and a check for $200 and then wait for 3 months.

    When you add a stock a pistol it has to be registered as an SBR, it ceases to be a pistol.

    best option: Buy a krink kit - register the lower as an SBR and build it!

    Is there a retailer in particular with Krink kits in stock or is it just a matter of looking and waiting?

    I think you're confusing this with shotguns. A regular shotgun (long arm) cut down would have to be a SBS, but if the receiver started out as a "pistol" then the barrel can be short and it can be an AOW (without a stock), the reason for this is because a "smooth bore pistol" is considered an all other weapon. (along with cane guns, pen guns, and other oddities.

    You gotta hunt the kits down. Expect to pay $800-$1000 for a good kit, then you need the receiver.

    Well that puts it a little out of my price range, so has anyone modified an AK pistol? Maybe have a couple of pics?

    A pistol can be an AOW if you have a vertical forgrip but it cannot have a buttstock.

    That is not correct. The only numbers that matter are the receiver numbers. None of the other numbered parts are the receiver so they cannot be registered as a gun.

    Also there are no numbers on a rear AK trunnion, the truth is what people call a rear trunnion isn't technically as trunnion either. Correction some trunnions are numbered per stitchclimbers post below.

    The piece that is most often referred to as the rear trunnion at times might be serialized (I have a romy kit with a serialized trunnion), but you are correct in saying that those numbers don't really matter.

    I only use my powers to fight the evil in the world! I think the poster edited his post after I grabbed the original quote.

    Doesn't it normally say at the bottom if the poster edited his post? ?

    Just tried it, guess not
