    Question about GB bulgy Krink kit

    Hey guys, could use your expertise. Stumbled upon this ( https://www.gunbroker.com/item/858636030 ) krink kit and I noticed some things were kind of off, at least to my understanding. First, the gas tube doesn't have a serial on the left side, and it's attached to the US made arsenal ribbed HGs. Seller claims they're bulgy mil HGs, but I've never seen any that look like that. Second, the front trunnion markings look different from most ((10)) markings I've seen. I'm not saying this guy is a scam or anything. I've purchased from him before, and I know many of you have as well. Just kind of curious. Thanks!

    It's not a military issue Bulgarian kit for sure.

    Mil issue have:
    - serialized gas tube (left side)
    - engraved and painted trunnion serial (not dot-matrix, which is common on SLR)
    - full auto carrier (the pictured carrier on GB is semi-auto)
    - wood handguards (at least the one I have)

    I would be cautious and ask the seller for pictures of the barrel crown and confirm that it's not a cut-down. The receiver section with the trigger holes does not appear to have the 3rd pin reinforcement. Also interesting that it includes a FA trigger, but no sear trip.

    It's more likely that this is a demilled Arsenal commercial import SLR-104UR.

    I second cgp's observations. I also suspect that it's a demilled semiauto. Nothing's wrong with that, but it's odd that he's not advertising it that way. Definitely check the barrel crown. I've also never seen an original barrel krink kit with those handguards.

    All that said, do you realize that you can get an Arsenal SLR-104UR on gunbroker right now for $2300 (SBR) or $2000 (16" barrel)? Given that, I'm don't understand why anyone would buy that demilled kit.
    Rights are inherent. They do not come from another's wallet.

    The seller is well known to embellish his ads quite a bit from time to time, as well as ask for beyond top dollar for most everything he posts. Chances are he bought that from one of the other guys on gunbroker that sell off police seized weapons that have been destroyed for a fraction of what he's asking for. That's going to be a cut down SLR, look around a bit and you should be able to find the complete rifle for well under that and wont have to have it rebuilt.

    New in box factory gun for $900 cheaper..

    I don't think I've seen a demil with one. I've got a virgin kit that has one in it but those virgin kits are all brand new parts so they could have just added one to the bag when it was packed.

    That's actually a slr104ur that's been chopped up. If you're looking for an actual krink kit, theres a couple in the mp

    OP, as all the members said, the seller on GB is a well-known flipper, he bought a number of kits and other stuff from members here and posted them on sale on a 50-100% markup, there is a OG barreled Krink kit in the MP for $2,500 if you are interested.
