i know this will get some laughs from the esteemed members and proably bring the wrath of the ak gods down upon my head but heres the question.

i have been collecting parts for a krink build for some time now. not an absolutely correct krink just a decent work gun so to speak. i have everything except triangle stock, top cover and hand gaurds.

now heres the funny part. my son wants an airsoft rifle for his birthday, so i have been looking to try and find a good one for him. in the cource of this research i came across this.

http://cgi.ebay.com/390-FPS-V3-Airsoft- ... dZViewItem

it has a real metal stock, real metal top cover and real wood handgaurds.
and its 1 to 1 scale. we all know the prices of the three parts i mentioned. now i have heard of people putting real ak parts on there airsoft aks so why couldn't you put airsoft pieces on you real ak. like i said this dosn't have to be perfectly correct. i'm just wondering about how strong the stock and top cover would be.

i expect flames so let em' rip. but does anybody own one of these, if so how tuff are they. thanks for the input.

Do US airsoft parts count for 922r compliance? :lol:

The first error that comes to mind is you telling everyone of this plan. I say delete this thread, I'll forget this post, and you can proceed how ever you see fit. It's your rifle after all.

good luck Mr Airsoft.

I have handled one of those (or one very similar) at a local Gander Mountain, and was rather impressed at the quality and heft of it- from 10 ft away you probably could not pic out that it was airsoft.

That being said, the parts, save for maybe the handguards, do not appear to be interchangeable with a real krink. The gas block/front sight is just pot metal and not windage adjustable, and the only other part taht *might* work* is the top cover. They are designed to look the same extrenally, but none of the parts would swap due to their internal configuration. The stock hinge did not appear the same as the real one close up. good enough to fool, btu no, you won't be able to steal parts from it economically...

But if your son is look for a kickass toy, that woudl definitely be it. I won't lie, it was so cool I almsot bought one that day...for $150 for something that feels like the real deal, fires full auto and has no NFA paperwork, it does look like a real hoot. :wink:

Found a review on it , this was included:

Magnet Test

Parts where a magnet sticks :

- Receiver and receiver cover.
- Selector switch.
- Trigger guard assembly (mag lock not included).
- Flash hider.
- Upper handguard metal part (retainers?).
- Front sight (the one's that has a thread).
- Whole stock assembly including trunnion.

Pot metal parts (where magnet doesn't sticks):

- Receiver rear trunnion assembly (i dunno exactly what its called).
- Charging handle.
- Receiver cover sight and rear assembly.
- Mag catch.
- Folding stock catch.
- Trigger.
- Front sight assembly (except the main sight).
- Scope mount.
- Outer barrel.
- Lower handguard front retainer ring.

yeah i kinda fiqured it wouldn't work. guess i'll just keep picking up real pieces. i would have just bought a kit but i think i would have a hard time convincning momma why my 250 to 350 kit addiction suddenly jumps to 650 to 750. she dosn't mind a 100 here and a 100 there so i will get all the parts eventually. i think i will grab one of these for the kid though. i have never held one but just looking at the picture it sure looks right to me, he will stoked.
