My ordeal of obtaining a semi-auto Krink has finally come to an end.
NoDak Spud NDS-2SF receiver
Tula 86' krink kit
saiga 5.45 barrel
Build done by Tac 47 Industries
Overall build quality looks good, parkerized finish with teflon topcoat. Stock lockup is very solid. Action is average smoothness. Minor nitpicks include exposed leaf spring at rear of lower handguard, minor blemish on receiver should've been sanded prior to coat, hammer was polished, but there were stray grind marks.
Now for the big complaints:
13 months to build the damn gun (was quoted 6 months)
11 months for Form 4 (i asked to start the Form 4 after the Form 2 was approved, so the transfer could go on while the gun was being built, which didn't happen)
1.5 months while Tac 47 sat on the approved Form 4 before contacting me.
Extremely poor communication. At the 6 month mark, I started emails and leaving messages. Emails were not responded to, messages were not returned (even when left with a store employee). Wasn't until the 10 month mark that I got responses to emails after I threatened to cancel the build and file a complaint with the BBB.
Hit me with a bullshit 10$ charge for preparing and mailing the Form 4.
Used my gun as a display piece at local gun shows!!!
