I took my JRA M72B1 out to the range a few weeks ago. I fired about 60 rounds. I had two ammunition related failures to fire. It wasn't the rifle, it was two rounds of Golden Tiger (older lot, bought maybe 5+ years ago) that failed to fire. The rifle did its' part and swatted and dented the primer quite adequately, but they just didn't go. On the third try with both rounds, they went. The rifle already came sighted for me at the 50 yards I was testing at. No other failures, just that failure of two rounds of GT. The Brown Bear I also fired had no issues in the rifle. I like the M72B1 better than the AES10B, it seems a tad less unwieldy for some reason, maybe the slightly shorter barrel...

Well the rifle went out on 09-02-2017 and arrived back yesterday 11-20-2017. It took a little bit longer than I would have liked but the rifle looks great. Only 3 issues at this point:

1) they didn't ship any mags back with it.
2) the selector lever doesn't stop in the 'safe' position. I'm sure I can tweak it or the dust cover and fix that.
3) and this is the big one. It's closes on a no-go gauge. It won't close on a field, but does on a no-go. With just the bolt in the bolt won't fully rotate with a no-go, but with the bolt in the carrier it will close.

So what do you guys think about that one? With out the bolt carrier it looks normal, but with it closing on a no-go in the carrier (ie in it's assembled condition for firing) I'm pretty concerned about that.

I just sent mine back too because Yugo mags won't seat, my front sling attachment was broken and the gas tube fitment isn't right. I didn't send THE mag or cleaning rod with mine....figured they might not make it back.

Sucks to hear that yours didn't come back right. Not sure what to make of your no-go gauge closing. I'd be concerned too for obvious reasons.
