Picked up my first AK last Friday from a lgs. Had actually been looking for a WASR to be my AK gateway, but saw an ad in Armslist for a used M70AB2 for 550 cash, and did some quick research. I said what the heck, I'm going to check it out. Seemed solid and clean, so I took a chance. Hoping I did ok on this:







It has a weird grip on it, like none I've seen on other M70AB2s on the internet. I have been reading everything I can about these, but would appreciate any other info you guys can provide. The receiver is stamped DC Industries. Is there a way to date the build by the serial number?

Congrats, you did real good on the price and model. Century contracted the M70AB2 builds (by different builders) from surplus parts and have a a US barrel and receiver (DC Industries). You can always replace the grip, etc with original 'Yugo' parts. Places like Apex has the parts and of course the forums. Now you can get accessories like bayonets, sling, oilers, etc. Fair warning, it's addicting!

As for serial numbers, the first thing is to determine who built yours.

One of my favorite models of yugos. You did very well OP. Enjoy it and shoot the hell out of it. If you ever get tired of the under-folder (The cool factor wears off quickly) there are companies that make aftermarket adapters to allow the rear trunnion to accept ar tubes.

Congrats, I'd be all over that at $550. Go get some surplus furniture and enjoy!
