The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, which was founded in 1943 during World War II, was a federation comprised of six socialist republics that included Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia. And even though the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia is long since gone, a lot of its crap is still around.

I should not say crap, because the wonderful Serbian arms manufacturer Zastava Arms is still kicking and it is far from crap. In fact, many of the firearms produced there are highly desirable. One of those firearms is the new Zastava Arms AK-47.

Produced by Zastava Arms in Serbia and imported by Century Arms International for distribution in the United States, the Zastava Arms AK-47 is a semi-automatic rifle patterned after the Yugoslavian M70. Chambered for the 7.62x39mm cartridge, the Zastava Arms AK-47 utilizes a rotating bolt alongside a proven piston-driven gas operation system that has provided sustained reliability for more than 60 years. Each Zastava Arms AK-47, sometimes known as the N-PAP M70, includes a single 30-round magazine.

The Zastava Arms AK-47 is now available from Keepshooting.com in limited quantities. Grab yours today for $707.55.

Zastava Arms, originally founded in 1853 alongside the production of cannon barrels and howitzers, is a Serbian arms and artillery manufacturer headquartered in Kragujevac, Serbia. With over 150 years of experience in the arms industry and a rich heritage, Zastava Arms states that their philosophy is to not only maintain their place among Europe's top arms manufacturers, but to advance their position by continuing to offer high-quality military, hunting and sporting arms through improving at every level of their operation. In fact, their ISO 9001 and SNO 9000/05 certifications are a testament to their dedication to providing the best product possible. And speaking of quality products, the Zastava Arms AK-47, which is based on the Yugoslavian M70, is one of the manufacturer's most popular firearms.

As noted, the Zastava Arms AK-47 is a civilian version of the Yugoslavian M70. Produced by Zastava Arms for the Yugoslav People's Army beginning in 1970, the Yugoslavian M70 is a Kalashnikov-patterned rifle with a design based on the Soviet AKM. To be more precise, however, the Zastava rifle available today is actually patterned after the Yugoslavian M70B1, a variant of the original M70 that utilizes a stamped receiver rather than the milled receiver characteristic of the M70. Other features characteristic of the M70 that set it apart from other AK-47s include three cooling slots on the fore-end, lightly-colored furniture and the presence of a black rubber buttpad on its fixed stock. Each of these features is readily apparent on the Zastava Arms AK-47.

The Zastava Arms AK-47, each of which is manufactured in the world-famous Zastava Arms factory, features a hammer forged 16 1/4 inch barrel (1:10 inch twist rate) alongside an overall length of 36 1/4 inches. Its heavy-duty stamped receiver boasts a thickness of 1.6 mm and includes a parkerized finish to offer enhanced protection against rust and corrosion as well as increased resistance to wear caused by moving parts. Everything you could possibly ask for in a standard AK-47 is here, only improved. Laminated wood furniture is tossed aside in favor of beautiful stained maple. There is also an ergonomic pistol grip as well as traditional iron sights and a sling mount on the gas assembly. All of this is packed into a rifle that weighs just over seven pounds. As noted, each Zastava Arms AK-47 includes a single 30-round magazine.

Those looking for a Kalashnikov-patterned rifle that is more than serviceable at an affordable price need look no further than the Zastava Arms AK-47. Pictures do not do it justice, and neither do their glowing reviews. You have got to shoot it to believe it, so pick one up today for just $707.55.
