    What are the receiver options for these? Aren't there different variations? Do those variations require something special?

    Have not seen too much info on tossing one of these together in the past several years seeing those kits still out there. They do look neat though.

    Okay Pirate,
    Now you have to add to your list of builds, your new RPD for those of us who want to see how you do it. I just finished a copy of your bench pod for the 1919a4 in 316 SS (didn't have carbon in the right sizes) and will take it to the range soon. Keep up with the good work..

    I just got my RPD kit from AK Parts this morning.Just like everyone stated it was almost new with the only wear at all on the wood.When they cut my reciever it just barely missed the barel ,close enough to get a small amount of slag in the chamber.It is heavy in some spots around the outside.The reciever pieces were there except a small section closest to the barrel. Has anyone demilled their kit yet?If they are all like mine I was wondering if it effected unscrewing the barrel from the reciever stub.I noticed that the ejector is still installed in one of the cut reciever sections so it would have to be removed before the cut parts get tossed out.I'm going to get a reciever blank from prexis and let everything sit until the semi parts become more available.

    A vendor has two versions of the RPD 80% receiver blanks for sale in 4130 steel.
    Considering that a person has access to a mill and a reasonable amount of skill, which receiver would be the best to attempt a build on; internally machined... solid on outside or externally machined...solid on the inside? Inquiring minds want to know.

    For some reason SARCO don't have them on their site (last time I checked), they had them in a few Shotgun News ads. You will most likely have to call them.
