What's the difference in the two? Was looking at a thread of a seller who has both milled types & I can't see anything obvious. I have a Yugo milled front end I am prepping to build, Would be a good idea to know which it is.
No, - M70s can be milled. M70B1s and M70AB2s are stamped.
I believe M64 is the earlier model milled Yugo, sort of like type 2 whereas the M70 is like their type 3. The rear stub is supposed to have a different stock attachment, but many of the kits that came in shipped with regular M70 rear stubs. They are also supposed to lack the lightening cuts on the receiver if I recall correctly.
This one has the lightening cut on the right side & is flat surfaced on the left. I did not notice any bulges anywhere for a BHO device. From what you guys have said, this seems to be an M70. So strange to have so many different types within a single AK variant. Thanks for sharing the knowledge.
Well , I read in one AK book that M64 had a 500 mm barrel , a different mag than AKs (not interchangable) , M64A had 415 mm barrel and AK mags , M64B - "A" with folding stock. After year 1970 , all M64A became M70 and M64B became M70A... source Kalashnikov Machine Pistols by John Walter
Scaldwellk, thanks a lot for the pics, I definitely have an M70. upon close inspection of the small parts in the kit, the TG has been installed on a rifle, but has no mag catch, pin, spring, or even the hole for it. Nor was anything but the grip nut on the receiver rear end stub?????
Now that you mention it, yes, I am. I almost regret this one, fortunately this one does have a really good barrel. What a pain in the arse trying to track all these small items. Got any ideas of where to find one?
