Negative. OAL 29", barrel 8.25". That's what's on my approved Form 1.

Your post got me curious so I went and measured my Krink. It is indeed closer to 29". :neutral:

I posted this question and got the answer of OAL: 27.5 and Barrel: 8.25.

My form was approved with this information. I haven't measured it since I put it together.

Wow, so anywhere from 27.5 to 30.0 inches for the OAL and 8.0 to 8.25 for the barrel length.

I just found this info in this forum:

Overall length: 735 mm (490 mm with folded buttstock)
Barrel length: 210 mm

which equals, 8.26 Barrel and 28.93 OAL. So 8.25 and 29" seems to be a winner...

Yeah, 27.5" with the flashider off maybe :confused:

Anyways, the above post is correct. Round it up to 29" OAL and 8.25" barrel length.

So this has me thinking... Since the FH is not perm attached, why dont we measure the OAL w/out the FH on since this is the shortest configuration possible? Isnt it better to underestimate the OAL and not overestimate??

Well, I measured a friends Krink today and it is 26.5" w the FH removed. Since the FH is not Perm attached, I went w/this measurement to be sure....
