Default Zastava M72 RPK at Classic

Zastava M72 RPK at Classic Arms. Dunno anything about these particular rifles. But no Yugo RPK's on the market recently. At $900.

James River Armory kit build on American receivers with non CLB American button barrels.

Not sure how JRA AK building skills are so that's always a variable. But if someone's looking for an M-72 clone this would probably fit the bill.

But why we can't have Century import new production M-72 and M-91s directly from Zastava is beyond me.

In order to import directly from Zastava, the weapon must be a "sporting type" rifle.
Atf requires [but not limited to] no pistol grip, no threads on the barrel, no night sites, + other restrictions.
We have hundreds of Zastava RPKs parts kits in-bound, both milled and stamped.
Most looked to be in very good used condition.

Thanks for the "heads up" Bob! Any idea on the price range of your kits? I'm getting the CC ready if the price is right!

Has anyone ever had one of these?

SOG has for $1040 (http://www.southernohiogun.com/yugo-...e-7-62x39.html). Down the line I eventually want to replace my Century M64 with a non-mutt RPK and wondering if this might be a decent option.

Looks like the same gun op listed from Classic. Maybe I am missing something?

Agree its the same, just seeing if anyone has shot one. I've seen a JRA Maadi that was pretty rough, but heard others speak well of some JRA builds.

I can say honestly that this guy is a good guy to buy from. And Yugo RPK are heavy duty, military quality guns. If I can pick some more up at a great price, I'll be in for multiples.

I mean, where else can you get military grade, not commercial, RPK for reasonable price? Parts kit, plus US made receiver & barrel for about $550?+/-

If you can do a reweld, the milled torch cut receiver versions are excellent.

The deal was the all matching Zastava M72 RPK kits for $209 last month at Numrich.

Just got one for $800 from classic (3 left now). I'm no classic fan, but why was it $950 at Atlantic. Was the Atlantic one different somehow?

Atlantic's sold out. I think (hope) they're the same.. both built by JRA, both same model. Very decent price in my opinion.

The rifles that we are offering were contract built for PW Arms by JRA and they had imported a very nice grade of kits that had also included accessories . I have not personally seen the Classic models so can not comment on their rifles but Classic is have theirs built by JRA in a separate production run.

I'm usually one of the first to bitch about my JRA AK63D with its Russian Cyrillic lettering but willing to let the past go if this Classic (JRA) M72 is fairly decent.
