I assume that Joeken Firearms's AK-74's use stamped receivers. However, I am not 100 percent on this one. Can anyone clear this up for me?

I'm sure they are.  Never heard of a 5.45mm gun built on a milled receiver.  But to make sure, ask the experts on the AK side [url]http://www.weaponforums.com/forums/board.html?b=4[/url]

How can you take a company seriously with a name like Joeken?

Their MP5 clone is a SW. Many of their AKs are SARs. Their AR15s are usually DPMS.

You have to figure out what they are selling (usually Hesse, CAI, etc.) because they won't tell you in their ad.

Also to add, Hesse is out of business and now the same guys have the Name Vulcan arms.Same junk by another name.

They are Bulgarian AK74 kits built on Hesse stamped receivers IIRC. I'd stay away.

What exactly is wrong with Hesse (Vulcan Arms) receivers?

Its the quality of the build as much as anything.

Poor rivets, ejector tab too short, mags have to be modified to fit.

Very few people who actually buy one seem pleased with it.  Many complaints have been posted on various boards.

I would rather have one good SAR-2 to 4 of those Vulcan 74's.

I have seen them and they were pretty much crap.  Don't waste your money.

Buy a SAR-2 if you are fund limited and get a SEAK if you can affort it.

You will be much happier.
