I have a JRA M72AB1 also.
All matching serial numbers.
Excellent fit and finish.
Shoots very wery well and accurate.

Uncommon model and the detachable bipod is a very nice feature.

I got one of the JRA M72 carbine under folder. One of my favs.
Actually Blue it was one of your builds that I saw and then these came available and I had to get it. Something about those cooling fins.

Ha!., yes I did.
I kinda had a lead from JRA on a matching numbers kit.
Came thru Classic for $800.

I have another as well and a kit that I plan to sorta clone into a M82 RPK in 5.56 .

But I'm gonna skip the adjustable gas block. But will have removable bipod and underfolder stock.

Oh., you mentioned it was a M72AB1., that model has the removable bipod and underfolder stock..
Maybe you only got the trunnion marking and not all the parts etc. ?

Ok, I was mistaken. It 's a m72B1. Did the AB1 come first or after the B1? 20200724_165038.jpg

Another M72 original barreled kit lives on a Childers receiver. Thanks to BR7.62 for offering up the kit on the market place a few months ago... I've cranked out a lot of AKs but this was my first RPK build. It was fun getting this up under the press with the longer barrel. I had planned to match the receiver to the original bluing but oiling up the park job Childers put on it... I liked it just like it was, less work for me same fun. God I miss building original barreled kits... fucking walk in the park.

Nice job man! You have more balls than me, because I would never try an AK build on my own.
