New to this gun. Got my first one today.

Today I left the gun show with a 'Yugo under folder', all black. It's stamped Century Arms and Global Machine & Tool, TX. Included was a Tapco mag.

I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts/opinions on this purchase.

Thanks for your feedback.

I think you'll dig it. Picked up same. M70 AB-2 I think... If I recall. Has the bulged trunnion, and thicker receiver. Wife likes it better than the AR. Something about ak-47 that I really like. Maybe Glock like reliability... Don't know, but if I was single I could end up a collector, if left to my own devices, lol...

They make a couple versions of this. M70AB2 and M70AB2-T. The "T" variation has no bulged trunion and a thinner receiver. I have the M70AB2 and find it a decent gun. Sights are a little off but still within specs. Seems to be built well. It was worth the $539.00 I paid for mine. You should like yours as well.

I have the T version. So Century Arms is the company and Global Machine and Tool manufactured it in TX? The trigger says Tapco USA 62. What's a reasonable price to pay for this?
What makes it Yugo? Excuse my ignorance. Thanks.

Century imported the Yugo kit and assembled it on a Global M&T receiver. Has to have a # of US made parts for legality (hence the Tapco trigger). Prob falls in the $500-700 range currently.

Get some steel mags from euro manufacturers and the 30 rounders. Stock up now... Ya never know when the next big atrocity will happen and fear drives prices up up and away.

Aim surplus and others like SGAmmo.com have original steel AK magazines. Do some research or go to AKFiles and search there.

Good luck and enjoy your new AK...

Thank you! So I'm assuming the steel mags are much more preferred over the Tapco/Magpul ones? Otherwise you wouldn't have suggested it. Thanks for the tip.

I just ordered a Hungarian Steel like new 30 round mag and a Bulgarian Polymer 40 rounder

Well, in married. Was my 3rd anniversary few weeks ago and very early on I learned a little trick. For any holiday or bday, I tell all my family to give me cash. So for example for my b dy in November, I got cash from everyone and bought an ak arsenal from my buddy. The ak was more than what I got in cash from presents but no one needs to know that.haha

Steel mags are more abuse friendly than Tapcos which are fine for the range but not for natural disaster, Fergudishu type scenarios.

How so? Don't steel mags dent? Plastic/magpul won't dent and could take harder abuse before it breaks?

No.

Go to any training class, and see which mags are in the trash can and which ones aren't.

Try to contain your arrogance when soliciting opinions from people with actual experience.

Steel mags dent when you abuse them. Polymer mags break through regular use. They routinely break at the locking lugs and the feed lips get chewed up every time you reload. Steel mags don't break at the locking lugs barring manufacturing defect, and they don't get chewed up feed lips. If you want mags just to abuse, get Circle 10's.

But what do I know, my "only defense" is experience...

My arrogance ? Look at yours. I was asking for an explanation, you state something ridiculous. What you just posted is what I was looking for, not something stupid like what you wrote before. You need to chill out.

I put on a Tapco muzzle break and ordered a Fab Defense grip to replace the one it came with. It will still maintain its 922r legality with the new grip right? The bottom of gun is stamped TX, USA
From what I understand I have to have less than 10 parts that are foreign. I think I'm good, but I don't know how this gun was built..
Thanks, I'm new to this.

You should be good to go!

Does it have a Tapco FCG (hammer, trigger and sear)? If so, just replace the pistol grip and muzzle device and you will be LEGAL!
