Who is Harlan? Any idea of the price for a complete weapon?

He used to work for FAC, then started his own business after that went down in flames. He is making AK receivers for types like the yugos, rpks, rpk-74's, akm's, and ak-74's. So far, the yugo's and an economy akm receiver has been available from them. Now the RPK types are starting to get done and the other types will follow. He doesn't offer complete guns.

Harlan is a very knowledgeable man, and if I ever do get a chance to build any AKs, my choices will be either a hand-fold (to save $), or one of his (still save $).

Ok, so those are some nice looking RPK receivers... But i'm certainly not up to building my own RPK, and even if i had the tooling I wouldnt want my first build to be with a very expensive parts kit on such a nice receiver. So my question is, again; will anyone be actually building a complete RPK or RPK74 semi-auto rifle for sale? Or am I up a creek unless I buy a kit and receiver and send it off to be built by somplace like AKUSA?

Can't you build up a standard AK kit with the RPK reciever? The VEPR's use an RPK reciever and they sure aren't RPK's.

You are confused....

There are 2 major styles of trunions out there

(1) Standard smooth sides
(2) Bulged

Which style receiver you use depends on the trunion you have.
Vepr's use the Bulged trunion

All weapons can use the Standard if you mill the sides off of the trunion.

Now before anyone starts.. Yeah.. the recievers are 1.0mm,1.5mm and 1.6 mm receivers
The majority of the kits availible are 1.0mm. Chinese guns were built on a 1.5mm receiver, and to my knowledge, no one made guns with the 1.6mm. Keep in mind the above is for standard receivers. I beleive all of the bulged receiver style were 1.5mm
