    i was going through a few parts lists on some websites and came across a fpk receiver and was wondering if an ak front trunnion and barrel would fit it.any one tried this before?

    Well seeing as how FPK usually translates into PSL then the front trunion would be bulged. It would also be longer than a standard AK receiver because the PSL chambers the bigger 7.62X54R. I guess anything is possible with enough time and money but I don't see where you would gain anything by building an FPK/PSL/AK47 hybrid.

    It's much easier and cheaper to buy an RPK instead.

    I was thinking that it would be cool to use a PSL bolt carrier/gas length on an AK - just curious how the extra weight and extended gas system would effect the rifle.

    Expensive experiment lol

    I thought about using a heavy RPK barrel reamed out to 7.62X54R on a PSL build but figured it would get too pricey.

    Not this one, they tried using a AK piston, inplace of the PSL piston. you can see where the problem would be there. If you read the links to the thread it has more details, and I think a few comments from the guys who built the things. I dont know a whole lot about the rifles in question, just what Ive scanned through and saved.
