I was just given this beauty as a Christmas gift. I do not know much about this model- Zastava PAP M77PS imported by Century. It is .308 Win., has a very low serial number, came with two 10 round metal mags, and is angle cut with poly furniture. I just got it tonight and will try to get to the range this weekend. It feels and looks very well made.

Zastava has a very good rep. That's probably a damn fine rifle if it works.

I had no idea the .308 version was being imported now. Very cool. Break it down and take lots of pics of the bolt, carrier, trunnions, etc.

.308? I can only imagine what else they must have in the pipeline! They better start selling de-banned versions like the 7,62x39 PAP

I took the screw out of the pistol grip, but was unable to remove the stock. I tried to knock it rearward with a rubber mallet, but it would not budge. Any suggestions?
Here are pics of the bolt, carrier, and rear.

Thanks. Yugos have a screw at the rear trunnion for the attachment of the stock. Try removing the butt plate and you should see a bolt.

8mm bolt that runs the length of the butt stock and threads into the rear of the receiver.

Hey Liquid...is that a slant cut receiver or is the stock simply covering up that part of the receiver. I know you know Yugos.

Not sure, these .308s are brand new to the market. I'm betting it's slant cut like the early x39 PAPs were.

In response to my previous comment, Slap a wood PG and an M76 stock on there with some wood HGs and it would look sweet.

I got the stock off. A small screwdriver through the tiny holes in the buttpad to remove it exposed the single screw from the back.

That is one odd looking rear. Plus, the way that pistol grip nut is riveted to the underside of the receiver is kind of silly imo.

Exactly like the early x39 PAPs. Regular M70/M72/M76-type Yugo butt stocks will probably bolt right on, you just have the aesthetic issue of the slant cut to deal with.

That is how the Yugos do the pistol grip on all their rifles.

Too bad about the slant cut though.

I hope this means the 7.62x54r M91 copy is on the way too!

I am going to try an IWD M76 stock. I will try to cut it down and sand it to fit the slant.

ETA: Now I have decided to go the other route. I am going to get an Ace Yugo block and weld the sides and bottom to make up for the slant cut and go withan Ace folder.

Didn't know that, never owned a Yugo.

I added an ACE Yugo mounting block, which I will have welded to fill the slant cut gap, folding mechanism, and stock (1), plus other 922r compliance parts: Tapco G2 FCG/PG (4), and US muzzle nut (1).

That thing would look damn good with some M76 furniture and a M95 flash hider.

Not really looking at picking up another rifle right now, but it does make me think about it.

Very nice. I'd love to have one of those.

But I can't help but ponder modding one to take M-14 mags.

Update on my Zastava M77: I cut the weld on the muzzle nut and finished the 922r compliance drill by adding a US made G2 FCG (3), a US made muzzle brake (1) (I also have a US muzzle nut and I have a US made M90 flash hider on the way- thanks to a response from a member in here to my EE WTB thread), US pistol grip (1), plus the US made ACE stock (1). I also scored 2 20 round mags that came in today. I hope to go to the range on Saturday. I really like this beast.

Any plans for an optic of some sort?
