What do you guys think of the yugo M70AB2 underfolders imported by century international arms are they any good?
+1I was under the impression that they were parts kit builds on Nodak receivers and not straight up "imports".
I wanted civi AKM that could reach out and touch someone, so I bought Saiga-308.ij70 do you own one or have you ever shot one?
Mine is a full wooden stock Century build on the DC receiver. The DC receiver on the older ones is 1.5 mm. The Yugo M70s they are putting together nowadays have a 1.0 mm receiver. Alot lighter and I don't think they are DC receivers made here in Minnesota. - MikeI have one of the early production M70AB2s from Century. The receiver on mine is marked D.C. Industries ST Paul, MN. Basically, it's built from a surplus parts kit with US barrel on a US receiver. The gas piston, bolt & bolt carrier on mine have some pitting. Serial numbers do not match.
It's reliable. The folder locks up tight. Shoots to point of aim. Like all other under-fodlers, it's not exactly comfortable to shoot and eventually the stock will loosen up.
I saw one guy who had posted about having an AD with one. From the pictures of the rifle that I saw, it appeared that the safety lever was bowed outward and managed to clear the top cover when he pushed it up. The selector pushed on the FCG, releasing the hammer. Pretty much any AK will do this, but it usually requires taking the top cover off, or pulling the lever outward, far enough to clear it. After this incident, it seemed that a bunch of people "discovered" this fact and started posting it everywhere. The one that kicked it off happened to be an M70AB2 from Century, but to say that "they had many probs discharging when Safety was engaged", is not really the whole truth.These were some of the FEW Century Guns which work fine, but they had many probs discharging when Safety was engaged! There were many Threads on many forums as well as on U-Tube, seems the Safety would on some go up into Receiver and discharge the Gun!
Century has a lot of very functional firerams.These were some of the FEW Century Guns which work fine, but they had many probs discharging when Safety was engaged! There were many Threads on many forums as well as on U-Tube, seems the Safety would on some go up into Receiver and discharge the Gun!
