This is a question of personal preference.

For myself, I would choose the "standard" AK-74.

Both are great rifles, although the length is what can either make or break you. I'd go with the Krinkov (74U) because it's the same caliber as the normal 74 but it's a bit more short (due to the side or undersold stocks). It will help when trying to clear buildings or rooms. Hope this helped.
