A original Yugoslavian built M70 that was imported by American Arms. Later importation of these rifles was handled by Mitchell Arms. These rifles, like most Yugo AK variants have a thicker RPK-style receiver with a bulged trunnion. Interestingly enough some early M70 imports were marked on their receivers as “RPK-47″. (GRH)
A rather uncommon Yugoslavian RPK variant with an under-folding stock. This isn’t a configuration sold by any importers like Century Arms, but can be built from M72 parts kit with the addition of an under-folding stock set from a Yugo M70. The Iraqi military also had a version of this rifle as well. (GRH)
While obviously a Yugoslavian M70AB2N (note the unique side-rail optic mount), Mitchell Arms imported these rifles and marked the receivers as RPK-47. In spite the incorrect designation, these are some of the most sought after AK’s on the market due to their high quality when compared to the later Century Arms Yugo rifles.
so, here are some better pictures of my yugo m70 build.
the receiver is from AWO. bulgarian underfolder and misc parts, used yugo m70 barrel, yugo m70 handguards, russian slant brake, russian canvas sling.
