    They are nice guns, cheap, functional and I would pick it over a WASR. I had one, but traded it away as I went Norinco all the way. Still, a very affordable starter AK.

    I've heard and ready very good things about them. Built solid, always get pretty good reviews, and I even believe the barrel is chrome lined?

    However, there are a few drawbacks from what I know.. The rail is on the dust cover, which makes it a little impractical for a scope to stay zero. The stock is irregular, so you can't just swap it out with any ak47 stock. All of this doesn't add up to too much, except the big one being: I've only ever read that it can only take 10rd magazines, and can not be worked on to fit a regular ak47 magazine. If someone is able to do that, I'd buy one today and get it fixed. But I've read it's almost impossible...

    This is partly true, or at least so I think. I have no personal experience with this particular variant and can only go on what I've read. As I understand it, the reason converting it to a standard mag setup is more difficult than a WASR is because the bolt is irregular as well, and the face/feeding area is only wide enough for the single stack . Supposedly though, a standard Yugo akm bolt should work and will make a milled out magwell work with double stacks. Again though, this is all hearsay.

    You'd probably need to cut the corner section square, but it shouldn't be too difficult.

    I had one and it was built like a tank! Stock was OK but not very comfortable for me. Functioned well with the low cap plastic magazines. Some have had good luck using WASR 10 single stack steel mags with a little work.

    Where was it that you were going to buy your Zastava PAP? I am currently looking to buy one.
