Custom Yugo M72 RPK By Two Rivers Arms and Ronin’s Grips

Two Rivers Arms is an impressive group – they can really build Yugo rifles (and just about any other AK for that matter).  I recently had them build a replica M72 RPK that looked like it came fresh from the factory.  I also had them build this rifle and it took some creativity on their part and our’s.

I sent them a Yug0 M72B1 kit from Apex with a Green Mountain barrel, Tapco FCG, Nodak Spud NDS-9 receiver and asked that they turn the barrel down to 16.5″ and not bother with the bipod. I also asked Tim to fabricate a scope rail so I could mount my RS!Regulate rail system there. Thus, they got started and did their assembly and tuning of the rifle.  As many of you know, AKs can be pretty gritty until they wear in.  The guys at Two Rivers have tuning the AK down pat and when it arrived, everything was silky smooth.  By the way, I had them put the original funky wood on it so it looked pretty funny when it arrived and then I went to work.

We’ve been working on a custom M72 RPK handguard set off and on all year.  First we had problems with the gas tube and then the lower turned out to have issues twice!  Finally, with this generation, we nailed the M72 handguard set and I am very happy. You’ll notice it is very thick as the mold was cast from wood originals and is a very snug fit.

What you see in these photos is the M72B1 rifle from Two Rivers but to it I have added our custom Yugo M72 handguard set, a custom Bulgy Arm-9 grip and one of the Magpul ZHUKOV-S butt stock with the 3/4″ riser as I needed to get my cheek into better position to look through one of my favorite Vortex Crossfire II 1-4x scopes.  These are one of the best values in scopes in my opinion.

I also replaced the original Yugo hammer and operating springs with fresh ones from Falcon Arms to give everything a bit more life.  To top it off, I added a Precision Armament M4-72 AK-47 Severe-Duty Compensator.

The rifle about 1/2″ groups at 50 yards with Golden Tiger FMJ.  I am very happy with the results.  The rifle handles great and between the weight and the aggressive Severe-Duty compensator, recoil was very, very mild.

Here are some photos of the rifle:

Vortex Optics Crossfire II 1-4×24 Second Focal Plane Riflescope – V-Brite Illuminated Reticle (MOA) (Sports)

With long eye relief, a fast-focus eyepiece, fully multi-coated lenses and resettable MOA turrets, there’s no compromising on the CrossFire II. Clear, tough and bright, this riflescope hands other value-priced riflescopes their hat. The hard anodized single-piece aircraft-grade aluminum tube is Nitrogen Purged and o-ring sealed for waterproof/fogproof performance.

Features: 

  • The 1-4×24 Crossfire II riflescope is one of many configurations in the Crossfire II line. The V-Brite reticle uses the V-Plex format with battery-powered electronics to illuminate the center dot for hunters/shooters during extra-low light conditions.
  • With long eye relief and an ultra-forgiving eye box, you’ll be able to quickly get a sight picture and acquire your target. The fast focus eyepiece allows quick and easy reticle focusing.
  • Anti-reflective, fully multi-coated lenses provide bright and clear views for the user.
  • Capped reset turrets are finger adjustable with MOA clicks that can be reset to zero after sighting in.
  • A single piece tube constructed from aircraft grade aluminum ensures strength and shockproof performance. O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged, the Crossfire II delivers waterproof and fogproof performance.
