Anybody been there lately? I remember once upon a time there was a thread with prices, but that's long gone. When I got my AR lowers from them awhile back, I wasn't interested in a AK build, now I am.

Can one of you AK vets explain the differences between these receivers? Will any parts kit work on them? Thanks

Between these receivers, practically any parts kit will work on one or another of them.

If you want a regular run of the mill AK, you want an NDS-3 and a Romanian parts kit. You only want a Yugoslavian if you want an underfolder and have bought a new barrel for it. So generally speaking, if you want a first AK, you want the Romanian and an NDS-3.

I have a partial compatibility matrix of parts kits and receiver type here:
