    Smile YUGO M70 AB2 BUILD W/CUSTOM HANDGUARDS

    Here is one of the YUGO M70AB2 kits that I built. The hand guards were trashed so I Tried my hand at making a set out of Zebra wood. I kept the same profile as the original grips. I did this in order to keep the continuity of the rifles original lines, plus it just looks sleek and clean, without loosing that certain BAD ASS QUALITY that the AK family of rifles poseses. It still says very quietly and calmly that this rifle has a right end and a wrong end, and if you are on the wrong end your day is going very badly indeed....hehehe.... Let me know what you think. Sorry if some of the pictures are dark.

    Reminds me of a tuxedo on an auto mechanic, but I like it! Great craftmanship

    Thumbs up

    Well I don't like the idea you had to kill a poor Zebra for the hand guards, but damn that thing came out way above the 10 on the Richter scale.
    Super nice bro.

    Thumbs up Zebra wood Hand Guards.

    Hi,
    Thanks! They were not to bad. I don't have a duplicator machine so I had to use my planner, belt sander, barrel sander, chisels, dremel tool, lots of sandpaper, and a whole lot of elbow grease. The Zebra wood is fairly expensive, so I made a trial set out of red oak. They turned out ok so then I moved onto the Zebra wood. My next set is going to be made out of a burl cherry I think. I will post some pictures when I get them done.
