Report -- Serb Zastava N-PAP M70

Gentlemen,

This is a FYI thread in case anyone is interested.

I recently received a Serb Zastava N-PAP AK-47 Yugo M70 7.62x39. It has the black plastic hardware instead of wood, which is what I wanted. I had read some negative reports about the PAP rifles but this one was priced right so I decided to give it a try.

My first observation was the quality--it is well made and well finished. I have put almost 100 rounds of TulAmmo through it so far and it has not missed a lick. Used multiple magazines from different manufacturers and they all worked perfect, including a 5-rounder. I adjusted the front sight slightly for my eyesight and can hold a pretty tight group for a man who has poor vision and shakey hands to start with.

Bottom line, I am very satisfied with the rifle and think they are worth what they can be bought for now.

I hope my experience is of benefit to you.

Gene Pool

Very nice. They really do look good from everything I see. Still looking for more info on these rifles though. I did order an O-PAP, I'll post a report when I get it out to the range.

On forums. However, I do take into consideration that some people who participate in forum discussions don't have "first hand" experience ... they only pass along ideas they have assembled in their minds from reading other comments. That's why I wanted to try one of the N-PAP's myself.

Also, I have first hand experience with Century Arms' customer and warranty service. If one of their products "isn't right," they will make it right. Century is a top notch company.

Thanks for asking.

Gene

I also have a new Yugo NPAP M70 with the synthetic fore grips and collapsible stock.
I had several FTF over the first 200 rounds or so but as it "breaks in" I have only seen 2 in the last 200. Very tight fit and finish. My first AK and I am pleased so far. I am looking forward to zero feed issues soon. I am very pleased with the black furniture and look of the AK. Only used Wolf and TulAmmo so far. I have 4 Tapco magazines and 3 other various metal mags. All have worked no problem. (feed issues spread out among all mags)
This AK is a 2013 version and I do not see any blemishes or issues.
Good luck with yours and I hope you enjoy it

Sir,
I have had numerous AK's over the past 30 years and have fired several thousand rounds through them. I have used metal magazines exclusively and can honestly say that I have never had a FTF -- not one. AK's are notoriously reliable, so when you say you are having that many FTF's, something is not "right" somewhere. I suggest you call Century and tell them about it ... And ask them to correct the issue. And when/if you do, create a thread letting us know your experience with their customer service. I have had very good service and I think you will too.

In the past 2 months I have another 500 rounds and zero issues. Not sure what was the cause before but am good to go now. I also have a few magazine additions (used steel mags from China and a Yugo) and all are feeding fine including the Korean mag. I have been shooting various Wolf ammo and TulAmmo. I did take the NPAP back to the LGS where I bought it and their armorer looked it over and said that AK's like to run wet so he put additional lube on it. He shot 40 rounds with me watching and zero issues. Since then I have only added a few touches of Leprachaun Snot (a grease I got at a gun show last year) and it has been perfect. Not sure about the "need to run wet" comment but I keep it dry with the grease only.


I am very pleased overall with my NPAP.

Good to hear and thanks for the update. the N-PAP's I've seen (not shot) look well built with good fit, machining and finish.

The only thing I had to do to my m92 pap was "open" up the rear sight a bit, other than that mine has run flawlessly. All I have shot is tulammo hp and fmj, both run great.
