I'm looking at a used Yugo UF. It does not say "Zastava" on the trunnion (edited--actually the rear sight base)--is it bad? Will one that does say it be worth more? Any other things I should check (besides top cover fit, trigger group, and canted sight post) before laying my money down?

I don't think any of them said Zastava on the trunnion. I think it was on the rear sight block if they had it.

Main thing to look for is condition of the bore. If it is a Century rifle I think most of those had new barrels put on them.

A lot of them aren't Zastava marked. Technically it doesn't affect value at all, although people do like that marking just because it's cool.

Check the things you named; Century's barrels are all new.

EDIT: oops, you said used.

Check the bore.

I have two 7.62x39 Yugo AKs built from kits. One has a bulged trunnion, the other flat. One says Zastava, the othern doesn't. Bulged trunnion says Zastava.

I read somewhere that their guns for domestic use were marked and export ones weren't. Don't know if that's true though. But about half my yugo kits were marked and half weren't. I don't see any rhyme or reason to it. All were well made.
