Parts and machining on the Yugos are very nice. I'd nudge toward the N-Pap.

Cans and paper = Yugo, polish, bulgarian, USA
Other purposes = Saiga

Depends who is importing these, if Century, then both will be about the same in quality, but different in price. If it is an Arsenal or legion Saiga then S>Y in terms of quality and price.

One other thing to consider is the Yugo will not have a Cr lined barrel.

I vote for Saiga just because you can build it exactly like you want it (assuming you're buying one in "sporting" format and converting), as far as rail, handguard, stock, pistol grip, etc. I have two 7.62 Saigas which are fantastic. Plus, I'm a snob for Russian AKs.

Saiga. Chrome-lined barrel, standard rear tang (for using other AK stocks), and general build quality are big pluses IMO. If you're just going to take it out of the box and have it work and look like an AK, then the N-PAP will work just fine.

Yugo here. Just got an o pap and it is a solid built. The yugos are different ie hand guards and buttstock but I like it! I do have a variety of Ak's to build reference from. Plus the price is right right now. Good lick with your decision

Yugo. Serbs have been building guns at that plant for a long time.
