MAC on the AK74S Krinkov


  1. avatar Pro Gun Brit says:

    As it’s a semi-auto, would this still be covered by the 1986 SMG laws?

    1. avatar Tim says:

      SBR’s, AOW’s and Suppressors are not impacted by the Hughes Amendment (1986 ban). You can transfer a semi-auto short barreled rifle (SBR) to your possession still on a Form 4 regardless of its manufacture date. You can also manufacture your own SBR on a Form 1. A $200 tax is required.

        MAC can you do a couple gun reviews for TTAG please.

        1. avatar JoshinGA says:

          Seconded. MAC has some seriously cool toys, and great insight. Would be great to have it in print here.

          Agree. His youtube reviews are first-rate. It would be to the benefit of so many where he to do one for TTAG.

    Damn, the muzzle velocity drops all the way down to like 2400 fps? [email protected] the 450+ meter sight.

      Keep in mind 5.45’s wounding isn’t through fragmentation like 5.56. It uses a long (longer than M855) bullet with an airspace in the nose that makes it tumble almost immediately upon hitting a target. Because of this, velocity isn’t critical like 5.56.

    MAC always has the coolest stuff.
    I’ve always liked the Krink style rifles. I don’t view them as being all that practical, but I’d love to have one.
    If nothing else, one of these would make a great backup gun for someone that had to carry a heavy bolt action rifle into a fight (not that I do anything like that). One of those would also make an excellent “truck/trunk” gun as well.

      +1 it’s rugged enough and handy enough to do truck or trunk duty well.

    I’ve always wanted a shorty 74. It looks like a lot of fun, but I wonder how it groups at 100 yards? Not like it was really intended for distances past 200, but it would be nice to know what the real capabilities are. I’ve seen a few 16″ 74s hold 3 MOA with 5 shots groups

  5. avatar Tim says:

    You can expect roughtly 5″ at 100 yards with the AKS-74U. A lot of that has to do with the short sight radius and generally poor sights (not intended for target shooting at all). The sights on the rifle are similar to handgun sights.
