NGS Yugo M72B1 RPK BFPU All Matching Rifle
For sale is a new Yugoslavian Zastava M72B1 RPK semi auto rifle with wood furniture. Shoots the inexpensive and powerful 7.62x39. The rifle was built from an excellent de-milled military parts kit. Trunnion is dated 1989. Built by Northwest Gun Supply (NGS). This is a completely matching parts kit. Manufactured using a fully heat treated quality Nodak Spud receiver and AKBuilder Nitride (Melonite) barrel. The RPK's original bluing was in very good condition so I left all original. NGS only blued what had to be blued to make the RPK as authentic as possible. The front sight post, rear sight block, gas block, trunnion, and receiver cover were left original with no refinish. The surplus wood is in very good condition with only a couple minor dings and scratches. Original M72B1 RPK’s did not have the receiver cover retaining button. Although the receiver cover has the notch for the pin, Zastava did not want to change the production process, because of the M70 series, so kept the notch. Completely 922r compliant and includes the proper engraved Yugoslavian selector markings. Comes with one 30 round magazines. This is a solidly built firearm and shoots like a dream. NGS test fires all NGS produced firearms and it shoots and functions flawlessly. Limited lifetime warranty.

Yugoslavian Zastava M72B1 762x39
During 1970, the Zastava manufacturing plant was given the task of improving the earlier M64 select fire design. What ensued, and which was eventually adopted was the Sutomatska Puska or the AP M70 series of rifles. The AP M70 series was originally manufactured with a milled receiver. When Yugoslavia switched from the milled receiver AK variants to stamped, Zastava also modernized the, Puskomitraljez, or M72 series of light machine guns as well. The M72B1 is identical to the M70B1 model, with a few modifications. The M72B1 utilizes a heavy finned barrel, with attached bipod, and lacks the receiver cover mechanism on the rear trunnion. In an effort to avoid design changes between the M70 and M72, Zastava did not change the design of the receiver cover for the M72. You will see all M72B1’s with the receiver cover notch, as seen on the M70 series for the receiver cover mechanism, but no mechanism. On later model M72B1’s, Zastava started imprinting the year, model number, and serial number on the left side of the front trunnion. The selector markings are the same as the M70 series utilizing the U, R, and J.
