Once in a while I get to have fun. For years I have worked with Two Rivers Arms making their grips so I knew they did a good job. Well over a year ago, I bought two Apex M72B1 kits to have as prototypes but never had time to build them. I must admit I have fun building rifles but the time just isn’t there any more. So, given our new M72 handguards were almost ready, I called up Tim at Two Rivers and asked if they could build an M72B1 that looked like it came straight from the factory and that is exactly what they did. Here are the amazing results of their efforts:
Note, the following is our Yugo M70/M72 grip:
Let me give you a quick run down of the parts you see above and a few you don’t:
- Yugo M72B1 kit from Apex with a new Green Mountain barrel
- Nodak Spud NDS-9 receiver
- New virgin stock set from R-Guns
- One of our Yugo M70 pistol grips
- Tapco G2 FCG
- RSA FCG retainer plate (I hate the shepherd hooks)
- Real Yugo BHO Magazine
Two Rivers did the assembly, engraving, bluing and hooked me up with the right muzzle nut and cleaning rod. This rifle looks simply amazing. If you ever are looking for a builder, give them a shout … now if I can just afford one of their Tabuk DMRs some day 🙂 Tim, Shawn & Ed – thank you!!
