I've done about 5 AK builds that all went well. What's different about RPK builds? Other than a slightly different receiver, are there any big differences? Thanks.

I'm not a builder but I did have an RPK. The only thing I can imagine being different is with the front trunnion block. RPK's are pretty much standard AK's with a longer heavy barrel and beefier trunnion block. Otherwise, the same.

You might have clearance issues with the barrel if you intend on using something like a 12 ton shop press to press the barrel back in. You may have to use a hammer to push it back in the trunnion.
