do they make any origianls?


The oath to serve my country as a soldier did not include a contract for the normal luxuries and comfort enjoyed within our society. On the contrary it implied hardship, loyalty and devotion to duty regardless of rank.

The pistols are pretty original.

However, they incorporate things that make both Western and Russian guns good and put them into one; notice how some of the weapons are based on Kalashnikovs but use NATO rounds?

Just because its not original doesnt mean its crap, though however I wouldnt be surprised if a few certain people on this forum make claims that the Kalashnikovs are unreliable...

A lot of guns from Zastava Arms are exported to other contries.

Everybody does, its a very fine sniper.

You could probably buy it, I have read that they have been exported a fair bit to America. I wonder if that 5.56 guy has one? Im under the impression he manages a firearm store?

I doubt it would be cheap, its pretty good quality stuff.

EDIT: Another neat thing is that it can handle the scopes of other manufacturers, so if yuo already have one your saving a bit of money =D

Actually that was more of a marketing thing.

Well if they're badly made they can be unreliable. I'd imagine that Zastava Arms would produce good quality weapons though.

Yep, so making a Nato caliber version of Warsaw pact weapons wasn't a bad thing to try.

That post definitely surprised me.


Yes, it would have been partly a marketing thing, but lets face it: Most Western-made ammunition is better than the Russian counterparts.

Best example is when comparing the 9x19mm to the Russian 9x18mm, it is obvious that the latter is not nearly as good as the legendary 9x19mm, so it would be more effective to use the 9x19 one.

Well more than performance it would be manufacture quality.
I'd bet that most NATO rounds are manufactured with higher standards.

Probably, but the old Soviet principle was to mass produce equipment. I heard that in the US you can buy 4 Makarov 9x18mm pistols for the price of one Colt 1911.
