Your saying it is not a Century or it is non-compliant? Zastava makes the best Yugos howevwer I have only seen parts lately. I cannot see how it got in already built.

Did not think Zastava made semi-only?

And I was in your store several days ago and did NOT see any of these??? Are these $400 if I were to come buy out of your store-front

Good score,all of the Yugo parts kits I've seen had the trunnion markings but the Century built guns have not.I'd say Century shaved off the trunnion markings and serial numbers to reduce confusion,this one may have slipped trhough because of the absence of a serial numbered trunnion.

That not the trunnion anyways, it's the rear sight block.. And the parts were a mix of both types.. Luck of the pull getting one from Century..

Just had to check the four I have. One of the four have the same markings dated 1983. The other 3 dont and are dated 1986 and later. They may not have put the markings after a certain date. Just a thought.

I can't wait to get mine built. The stamping really adds to its character.

Man the Century under folders look better than I thought..I may have to pick one up...

I have 2 Yugo kits. One has that marking, the other does not.

That's not the trunnion, that's the rear sight block.

That's the normal RSB markings that I've seen on pre-1986 dated M70 rifles.

I was digging thru some Century Arms Yugo AKM under-folders. looking for one with decent Teak furniture. This was the only one like it with these markings on the Trunion.

All the typical Yugo features are on these kit guns, like the catch to retain the recoil spring guide and the re-enforced trunion block etc.

Any of you guys seen a Century with this stamping on the trunion? All the rest in the lot had plain, unmarked trunions.

TRUNION YUGO MARKING



Denny



I have two kits, a 1982 fixed stock with those markings and a 1988 underfolder without them. After seeing these rifles I was just going to buy one, but when I saw how they butchered the trunnion I'm just going to build both my kits. Don't get me wrong, I like what I see, but I like to keep my markings even more. That said, I understand why they did that to the trunnion.

I have no idea what Chuck is retailing them for. This was the only one with the ZASTAVA marking on it.

The condition of the wood and accessories varies from rifle to rifle, but they all look pretty good.

I really like Yugo AKs and always thought they were one of the best manufacturers.

ANY ONE KNOW A SOURCE FOR A FRESH SET OF TRITIUM FLIP UP FOR THESE?

Denny



Hmm...group buy from Trijicon?

Hell, that ain't a half bad idea if they were up to that task of doin it. I would certainly be willing to pay some good money to get new tritium vials installed, especially since it wouldn't be too hard to remove the flip-up night sights and send them in.

Anyone here got a contact at Trijicon or another night sight manufacturer?

Can you find if you will be selling any of these with or without stamps???

I got one of the century yugo's from Santa and it has the same markings.

I think the point is it is luck of the draw/random if the rifle still has the 'Zastava' stamp on the side. Most of them have the stamp milled off when the serial number of the original gun was milled off, but a few got through unmolested.

You can't really request to get them from a dealer that way (althoguh I guess you could ask nicely or maybe orffer to pay a handpick?).
Link Posted: 12/26/2005 8:59:45 AM EDT
the Zastava factory mark isn't being scrubed, only the number on the trunion so dealers don't mistakenly enter this as the serial number, which is actualy on the new DCI receiver and it doesn't match. I'm not sure which years had the Zastava markings and which did not, but they are not unheard of. I'm sure many could show pictures of kits with them, it probably depends on the year.

Thanks Denny!!! acctuly if you guys read my post, i asked wether ANY of them were for sale, WITH or WITH-OUT stamps.

The Yugoslav's are some ordnance making bitches... and they make a lot of stuff with english markings.

Nearly all of the ordnance they make (as in projectiles, rockets, etc) are sold with either english or cyrillic markings on them, at the discretion of the buyer. The chinese export a ton of stuff with directions and markings in english, too. Even the Iraqis mark a lot of their domestically manufactured weapons with writing in worm on one side, and english on the other.

AK47. It's the universal language.
