Zastava Arms has a few decades of experience building millions of AK-47 pattern rifles and the new M70 ZPAP AK Rifle really shows it. Imported through Zastava Arms USA, the new ZPAP AK-47 is built on a stamped receiver with improved fit and finish and overall quality when compared to older models. The attention to detail on the new ZPAP is superb from the properly set rivets to the deep blue finish that blends beautifully with the dark walnut forend—all of which are US made parts for 922R compliance. The polished Nickel Molly steel bolt carrier and double stack bolt provide a stark contrast with the rest of the gun that really set it apart from the rest of the market in terms of aesthetic. However, aesthetic is not usually what most people look for when purchasing a Kalashnikov for their collection and the M70 ZPAP Rifle exudes function over form. It features a bolt hold open notch in the safety selector for locking the bolt open without a mag and even comes with a bolt hold open capable magazine, making reloads much faster. The stamped metal dust cover fits tightly against the receiver with no wobble and a side button makes removing and inserting the recoil spring and guide rod much easier. The Zastava USA ZPAP M70 Rifle chambered in 7.62x39 will make a fine addition to any level of collector while still providing the performance expected from a high quality AK at the range. This model features a chrome lined bore for long term durability.

Best AK for the money


The fit and finish on this rifle is great. Zastava has become the 'go-to' AK for the price point and, in my opinion, that's a well deserved title.
Primary Arms is also top notch. During the Great Panic of 20-21, when everyone else was gouging on their price, Primary Arms were consistent. They have earned my business for life.

No regrets


Glad I picked this up while I could. Lots of good features for the price. Added Alg recoil spring. Alg trigger did not require any fitting. Rifle came very close to zero right out of the box hitting torso size steel at 300m. Only issue I’ve had was magazine related. I Download my Croatian steel mags to 27 or 28 because sometimes the first couple rounds don’t want to feed, but rifle will fit and shoot every type of magazine I have. Zastava makes some solid rifles

Fantastic AKM purchase


After some research I settled on selecting a ZPAP M70 as the best quality to investment purchase. Not only was Primary Arms one of the few best priced vendors, their customer support responded quickly and professionally during the purchase process. My order was processed and shipped quite quickly and notifications were timely and accurate.

The rifle itself appears made quite well, fit and finish was excellent, I am happy with the decision to purchase this ZPAP M70 folder.

While I've ordered other items before, this is my first firearms purchase from Primary Arms. I can definitely recommend both this rifle and vendor with confidence.

The best AK for under $1500

Better than anything that's not an OG Norinco, Saiga, Vepr, or Arsenal.

Get it.

Great Purchase

Great AK. The red wood is amazing. Recommend sealing it with TruOil. The folder slides to the left. If you're going to use the side-rail scope mount, you do have the option of changing to fold to the right. BCG will operate while folded and clear the top of the stock! This is probably one of my favorite ZPAP M70s.

Zastava ZPAP M70 does not disappoint


I waited till I got 1000 rounds thru the rifle before reviewing and it has performed flawlessly with Zero malfunctions with various ammo brands. Fit and finish is tight and remains so. It is said the current Zastava production is the best quality they have ever put out and I concur. I especially like the beefy build with the 1.5 stamped receiver and bulged trunion. After 600 rounds I did lose the plunger pin retainer for the button that is depressed to remove cover but upon contacting Zastava they sent me one ASAP - no charge. Very good customer service. Primary Arms proved to be an excellent choice to do business with too. My order was handled promptly with good communication during the transaction. This AKM is a prime example of you get what you pay for and I’m glad I made the investment in this quality rifle for my entry into the realm of AK owners. I have pride of ownership and it is literally a blast to shoot. Accurate and fun!

Ahead of the Pack


For $1300 you’re getting a legit import built like a tank, a great shooter, good customer service from Zastava, and a rifle that will certainly turn heads at the range.

The cons? My FSB was severely canted, enough to impact zero - I’m impatient and decided to go with a KNS precision adjustable peep sight which fixed the issue but Zastava would likely fix it for free if you have time to kill. The stock interferes with mounting an optic rail (there’s a few YouTube vids on this), but IF you have a gen 1 folder (no recoil paid and QD mount towards the back) you can flip it to fold to the right, which I was able to do on the rifle I received from PA. Gen 2 folders don’t work well with this trick.

I wish I could write more to give a well informed review but, you know, 1,000 character limits. Had it not been for the severely canted FSB, this would be a 5 star purchase. Would I buy it again if I had the chance? Absolutely - I love this rifle, just be ready to get handsy if you do the same.
