Stock Configuration & Condition: The handguard and buttstock are Yugo wood with three cooling slots on each side of the handguard.  This is a Yugoslavian build so there is no tang on the rear of the receiver for the buttstock and the handguard is the larger size compared to standard AK furniture.  Only Yugo styled furniture will fit this series of AK. The receiver is an RPK styled receiver with 1.5mm thickness compared to the standard 1.0mm thickness.  This allows for a more reliable and durable firearm as the RPK is made to shoot larger capacities of ammunition.  The barrel is non-chrome lined.  Non-Chrome lined barrels are more accurate to their counterparts.  Most 7.62×39 ammo is non corrosive so it isn’t too much of an issue and the higher accuracy is a huge pro.  The pistol grip is checkered polymer.  Has strengthened dust cover system.  There are some scratches and compression marks on the wood but primarily on the buttstock. The buttstock appears to have been previously military issued.  The LOP measures 13.25 from the front of the trigger to the back of the stock. The stock rates in about Fine overall condition.

Our Assessment:  The O-PAP M70 is one of the sturdiest rifles to come out of the Zastava factory.  This AK is Solidly built like a tank and all of its equipment and parts are tight. Serbia is one of those names notorious in the AK world for making high quality and long lasting AKs.  Its modern production does mean that if you just need a Kalashnikov type rifle to bang around, you won’t feel guilty about it and knowing it hasn’t been abused in the past makes all the more reason to grab this fresh rifle.  This firearm packs a serious punch and brings a lot of potential for self-defense, target practice, hunting, or just general fun-having.  The O-PAP is a different kind of beast as it flaunts a thicker receiver comparable to the RPK and boasts a Hammer Forged Barrel that isn’t Chrome Lined to ensure longevity and increased accuracy.  If you want versatility and power and an AK that stands out from the rest in its Yugoslavian styled aesthetic, then this is the gun to make that arsenal stand out.  Good Luck!
