Default AK Parts kits?

I just bought three AK-47 100% receivers from OOW today. Parts kits aren't cheap anymore, so do they even make sense to buy? Would it be just as cheap to buy each part brand new from someone like Brownell's? Sportsman's Guide has some ak kits for $300-ish without a barrel. What are y'all doing for builds these days?

Even if you buy the parts from Brownell's, or Sportsman's Guide most of them are not new parts they are just take offs.
What is an AK-27???
Most of my builds these days are from stockpiled kits that I bought back when they were cheap.

Either you were being sarcastic and rude, or you really thought there might be some oddball/rare AK model 27 and were asking with sincerity. There is no model 27. It was a typo. I fixed my mistake. I apologize for any confusion.

I have done a lot of AK building but still don't know it all, if their was such a weapon I wanted to know more about it.
But I did suspect it was a typo.
I picked two of the OOW AK74 receivers also for a couple of my builds I normally build on flats but this time I going to try a 100% build.
