It may be because when AK's are imported into the US they need to have some of their parts swapped out for US made parts. This is probably what the difference is.

Thanks all for your comments thus far. I have too have been noticing that as well. Most of the photos on the internet are either of German soldiers After the '90s or mainly posted by the people of N. America. We have the Krinks here as well but have never seen one with black bolt until a friend ordered a parts set from US. Also the krinks and most AKs sold here have chrome lined barrels - something the US parts kit did not have.
