Its out of stock at the moment but my question now is will the rebuild kit

https://www.tandemkross.com/rebuild_...r-mark_iv-2245

which IS in stock work if I just get a Kraken frame with it and have a volquartsen Mk II trigger kit and bolt. Comparing the old MKIIs to the new mkIVs looks the main difference was the hammer spring. If that is in this new kit,

Looking at the kraken build video, looks like there is a frame lug and frame lug screw that is needed from the old frame.
No, the new release Kraken frame comes with the frame lug and screw. Nothing is needed from a donor pistol. I built mine with no donor pistol.

The lighting makes it look a little lighter. The green is using the FX clear on the Cerakote. I believe its the FX Cosmic clear. I will try to get some additional pictures up tomorrow.

Love my Kraken so far. I took my youngest daughter with me to the range as she getting ready to try her first rimfire challenge match and I wanted to make sure her pistol and rifle were setup correctly. I Brought my newly built Kraken with me to sight it in as well. Well true to form, my daughter took a liking to it so I may be out this pistol too.
The frame was fun to build but if you have fat fingers and have a time with normal frames be aware that the Kraken with BYOK parts kit up the anty a tad. Overall it was a blast and really shoots so nice.
