If it's a PAP like the pic below, it's dramatically overpriced. They normally go for $400-ish.

IIRC that rifle only accepts 10 shot magazines and requires machine work on the trunnion to convert it to accept standard magazines.

Exactly. While the Century Wasr's come into the US with a narrow magwell opening, the front trunnion is a hi cap part. These Yugo guns use a narrow opening front trunnion, which makes hogging out the opening much more labor intensive. GARY N4KVE

and even after all the work it probably wont feed correctly, and the buttstock cannot be changed out into a PG configuration.

I wish the serbs would make it easier to convert these rifles

Why can't the buttstock be changed out? Is the rear trunion different than a standard one?

It can be changed out, a M70 butt stock will bolt right up. The slant receiver raises aesthetic issues, it really looks like ass unless something is done to accommodate the receiver slant.

well I didnt know that you could put a m70 stock on it, but your right about the aesthetics it would not look right.

here is a thread that explains the conversion
