Default Yugoslavian M72B1 Michigan Winter Photos

Yugo M72B1 built by member gvguns. Original barrel, and Childers receiver with select fire markings. Receiver rust blued to match the kit. Also has a nice bit of trench art in the stock where it meets the rear trunnion. It resembles a ladder or roman numeral III. Maybe the previous owner cleaned the rifle 3 times, took out three enemy combatants, been with that many women during his service, or more likely was a fan of Revenge of the Sith? Looking forward to taking her to the range.

Nice wood,and good looking rivet job. Did you use an original barrel,or go with a U.S. made replacement?

Nicely done. These guns are heavy duty military quality & I enjoy seeing them put back into service. Good deal!

Thanks for the compliments on the rifle. The builder indeed has great attention to detail.

Original pulled barrel. I couldnít bring myself to get a US one, though thatís getting harder and harder as nice originals dry up. It has some small pitting on the outside and a little dark (but strong) rifling and a good bullet test so Iím good with that. I rolled the dice with the Centerfire barrel lottery and came out well.

Is that a painted style rear clip-on night site?


Beautiful rifle.

I took my #4 (a milled gun) to the AK Files shoot on New Year's day, was pingin steel out to 550 yards with iron sights & Golden Tiger. Beyond that I couldn't tell if I was hitting or not cuz I barely could see the target.

M72 is a quality rifle. It's fun to see just how far out you can hit stuff.

I'm not bragging. These weapons are heavy duty, longer range, heavier barrel, AKs that can hit out to longer distances. When you shoot, find the longest distance you can... And see for yourself what the M72 can do.
