ak74 rifle vs krinkov
i have the option of getting a rifle or a krinkov for shtf. this isnt my first ak so i know the operation. i am stuck at what to buy, because i like the fact of the longer range of the rifle but the compactness of the krinkov. what would yall take to defend yalls family

Yanno, if you got your family involved in

shooting sports, they could help defend you.

If you have an AK already, why not a pistol in a lower caliber.

Much easier to use inside a building, like a 9mm?

The shorter barrel of a K is going to give you muzzle blast/flip

to make it harder to get back on target, as well as

over-penetration, in a home setting.

If you are going for a compact rifle that meant for relatively close to medium range combat go with the Krinkov. If you're going for a more medium mid- long range go with the 74; is that what you're getting at? If I can recommend a handgun for home defense I'd go with a .45 with hollow points. Hope this helped.

I'd get the rifle.
