Nice rifle! Matt is the man. He did an AK-55 for me a few years back, still my favorite!

Hey, what kind of scope rail is that?

Will a Romy AK rail work well for these guns? And what scope & mount will you use? M72B1 is heavy duty. Thanks to Numrich for making these available.

Beautiful. I like the side rail, I plan to do that on my M72 carbine that I'm putting together.

What type of AKB barrel did you use? (chrome lined, Nitride). I have a chrome lined barrel that will not take the bluing. Receiver blued nicely, but the Oxpho-Blue doesn't work for some reason on the barrel.

I believe it is a bulgarian (or a copy). I mounted a PA ACSS on a MI rail.

Does the sling swivel interfere with sliding the optic mount on at all?

Dude that thing is super sweet! Love the rail ... nice touch.

An M72 has been at the top of my list for next purchase. Yours turned out wonderfully.

I think I'll see what touching up the rcvr looks like with oxpho first. I really like the M72 parts finish

Interested in how that works. Tough to get that worn look.

Scratch pad, steel wool, or sandpaper.

Or conversely you could just use the hell out of it.
