Our Assessment: The Century M70ABM is a loving copy of the Zastava M70ABM, produced in Serbia during the time of the Yugoslavian state. The barrel is non-chrome lined, which increases accuracy downrange, and this rifle comes with a folding stock for added transportability. It also includes a bayonet lug for added close quarters defense options, as well as a Tapco trigger group.  With its distinct night sights, grenade launcher sight, and underfolding stock – this is a fine remake of one of the better versions of the AK Pattern rifle with original military parts and would be an excellent addition to any AK collector’s safe or a starting point for any new AK collector.
