Hi in canada the only AK one can legaly own is a valmet 78. But we have the right to build legal weapon using prohibited weapon parts. So anyone knows where i could find valmet 78 complete part kit or more realisticly RPK part kit in .308 win so i can import it and build my own reciver.

Its highly unlikely you will find a Valmet 78 as a parts kit. Even if you did, you'd run into the same problem as all Valmet 78 in .308 owners...magazines. Valmet re-worked H&K G3 mags to work in the 78. These are rare and expensive. Plus, besides the 78 coming in 7.62x51 and 7.62x39, they also came stamped and milled receiver. Magazines fitting a particular firearm is a "hit or miss" proposition. Were I you and I found a parts kit, I'd build it as a 7.62x39 and use AK mags. Otherwise, it will task your machining capability. My 2 shillings!
