I see Greek posted pics, but to answer your question, yes. But only if you pull the slide out for the bayonet compartment. They fit real nice then. Even with a flash suppressor like the one on my Bulgy 74, there is a little bit of room to spare. I would assume your AK with a Magpul stock would fit also.

I see Greek did not post any pics of the outside of his, but the inside looks about in the same shape as mine. Mine has been beat up a bit on the outside however. As mentioned earlier in this thread, the lid is split lengthwise for about half the length of the box close to the hinges and this will need to be repaired or it is eventually going to break off. No no big deal, i've got screws, wood, and glue.

3/4 inch plywood fits perfectly into the slots where the missing dividers were. A little time with a skill saw and a guy could make his own pretty easily.

Could you by chance get me some more pictures of the outside of the M72 storage boxes (like the sides where the carry handles would be) and maybe get some measurements too? I need the length, width, and height of the box and the lengths and widths of the storage compartments inside the box.

I'll keep you in mind in case I ever need a AK builder, Do you thread barrels?

Also nice crate, I would love to make something like that but my wallet wouldn't

Just got both of mine in, There not bad but they do need some work.

What is the best way to clean these bad boys?
Soap & water? Bleach?

Also just noticed one has a large crack in the lid lol

SG just has too many policies and state based restrictions on all sorts of items.
That experience motivated me to find better places to but from, like their suppliers!

About the box, I think the Czech "SHE" rifle is actually what we call the VZ-52.

References say the "SHE" is about 39 inches long with a 20.5 inch barrel.
