Hello AKFnet. Long time lurker and AR15 guy, new to AKs.

I purchased a Krebs KV-13 when one came available in the batch completed about a month ago. So far I've shot about 4 mags through it. Bought another one with a QD and sold the first to my Brother who is a long time AK fan.

As would be expected, rifle functions flawlessly. So smooth. Handling and ergonomics are almost the same as with my 12" Larue Stealth AR platform. From an AR guy, my overall impression of these rifles make me think of Krebs as the Wilson Combat of AKs.

I may try to do a more detailed review, but time is difficult to come by.

For now, some ak'porn.

It's got the special "RS" cut side rail too.

Sweet!!


My KV-13 is a pure work of art. I've never played with a Wilson combat so I can't compare - but now thanks to you I will know one when I feel one like the KV

Hey KrebsCustom,

how do you keep the rear dust cover stable enough to hold a zero? Is there a hinge thats added where the old rear sight block sits that Im not seeing?

Im still not seeing how over time, without being permanently attached, the dust cover sight will retain its zero. Everything loosens over time. Anyone have a close up photo of the "welded plates" he puts at the sight block?

The AK's I own all have their traditional furniture, but I do like the appearance of that KV-13. :)

How they do it is plain old hard cash and hand finishing each and every top cover to a specific rifle.
There is a "back plate" that we attach to the top cover. This makes the top cover much more rigid. It also allows us to fit the spring guide to the square hole in the back of the top cover. There are two legs on the bottom of the back plate that the top cover sits on when installed on the rifle. Our KTR rifles were similar and held zero. We consider the KV-13 top cover to be even more rigid. Through our extensive testing we haven't seen any issues with holding zero.

Im more of a visual learner. Any chance for pics? I still dont entirely follow how this thing doesnt slide all over the place over time.

I was on the first batch of KV13's. As I understand it, the first ones did not have the special "RS" side rail you mention. Can you tell me what difference there is with the new rail?

Any significant drawbacks to having the standard Vepr side rai?

I second that. Labeled photographs would go a long way to inspire consumer confidence.

With the addition of the back plate and the fitting of the spring guide the top covers is rock solid once it is mounted in place. There is no movement front to back or side to side. Please post any additional questions. hopefully these pictures help.

Thanks
