double
I thought that since it was a AKM, it would have a single hook.
Not all AK's are the same. In fact, most differ from country to country in subtle ways. Unless your being country specific, no general rule applies to all. In fact the Yugoslavian AK's differ more than most. The older Yugo AK's (M64 through M70 series) utilize a double hook, but I think the newer (M80, M90/95, M21) use a single hook. (If I recall)

Doesn't the M70 AKMs also have the hammer delay device?

I'm not exactly sure which part that is so I couldn't say... but I suppose I could dig around and find some full auto parts that came out of one of my kit builds... all were double hook, rec's were cut for double hook.

You should be able to build it using either... the Nodak Spud receiver I built mine on was cut for a single, works fine.

It's true, either a single or double will work. All the NDS-4 and NDS-5 as well as the dedicated M90/95 receivers I got were cut for a double hook.

Do you think one from Red Star Arms will work? I've used Tapco G2's in all of my Romys, but since this one is nicer, I'd like to try the RSA.
Ideas?

Yep, it will work. You have to notch part of the safety lever, but you'll never see it.
