Default M72 on local classifieds

This showed up for sale locally. Is it just me or do most of the rivets and the barrel pin look severely fucked?

Seller`s ad states

Picked this up in a trade deal and it's been a flawless runner with about 300 rounds in (4 drum mags worth of ammo). Anyways I have two RPKs so I'm looking to sell this one. It's bone stock and will come with one 30 round steel mag.

Barrel pin looks alright to me, and the rivets look okay. Kind of looks like the rivet holes were deburred sloppily with a dremel prior to riveting or removed and re-done, but nothing serious.

Shoot if you want an m72 that's not a bad price if you aren't set up to build. If you've got the blood to spare go for it lol.

The barrel pins in these kits are short like this one. So that is correct. I used it in my build but my buddy made his own from drill rod so it would be flush length.

I agree not a bad looking build.
