I've had these two kits, that I put away years ago, and thought I build one of them. Took the RPK down, opened the box and found out it was only a partial kit. Then I took the PSL down and found out the same dang thang! Another partial kit. Now I'm wondering if I could possible build a Tabuk out of the two, even though different calibers. Here's a couple of pics of the two.

The Romy RPK, 7.62x39, No bulged flat other than a Yugo under-folder flat

The PSL: SS heavy duty 80% receiver, no barrel and couple other parts

Tabuk is based off the yugo m70, not sure how your kits would help that.

Man, I would build the PSL in a Heartbeat, with the best possible barrel on the planet procured, end up with a Tack driver.

Who has PSL barrels? They seem to be unobtainium.

Not sure where you would find a barrel but I'd build the PSL..
They get bashed because of the thin barrel but they are very accurate..
Mine was built with a complete and matching kit/barrel & since It's not a bullet hose so I never worry much about the barrel personally..

Your 80% receiver would trouble me as that will probably add a good bit to the build cost unless you do it yourself.
