Considering getting a Bulgarian 5.45x39mm Krinkov. Doesn't come with the trigger guard assembly. Is there any real difference between a Krinkov trigger guard assembly and a "regular" AK-47 or 74 trigger guard assembly?

Functionally, no. Any trigger guard/mag catch will work.

But if you're building a Krink, it really should be done right.

Let me reword my question:

What is the difference between a Krinkov TG assembly & a "regular" AK-47 or 74 TG assembly?

I have a RAW 7.62 Bulgarian Krink and the TG is exactly the same as my Romy AES-10.

The Russians used both akm and 74 trigger guards. The early ones will have the akm trigger guard.
The akm latch is solid and seems shorter while the 74 seems more thin and has a dimple. Between the 74 and 74 krinkov trigger guard I'm not sure if there is a difference. Possibly the side of the trigger guard where the front rivets attach are rounded on the side like the saiga trigger guard.

All the Bulgarian krinkov pics I've seen usually have a 74 trigger guard.
