I'm very happy with my Yugo M72, there is only a few little things that bug me. One being the fact nearly every piece of the rifle is a decent lusturous dark blue/nearly black or maybe it is black with the exception to the forward/barrel trunnion where all the Zastavia stuff is written and the sights mount up and the receiver. The forward trunnion and the receiver look almost as if they were painted black, its tough paint and doesn't come off with lacquer thinner it does chip. I'm tempted to remove the crap but don't know what to use to match the dark finish of the rest of the rifle. It almost has the appearance of a deep bluing, has a decent luster, not dull by any means. Could be that the original military finish has been worn down smooth over the years, anybody got any ideas? Im in the dark here...It wouldn't be beyond my skill levels to take the thing apart and have it redone entirely if thats what it takes.
