How many of the milled Zastava Kalashnikovs were made? Ill be doing my best to update this list, trying to get an idea of max/min production per year, and overall. Leave your serial number (and assembly number if you want), and ill add it to the list below. Out of courtesy, numbers which were sourced through various online pictures, auctions etc.. will have an X as the last #.

M70B (milled, pin barrel, fixed stock):
A-55227 (relief cut around barrel pin)
A-5536X (relief cut around barrel pin)
A-55935 (relief cut around barrel pin)
A-5623X (relief cut around barrel pin)
A-5662X (relief cut around barrel pin)
A-5791X (relief cut around barrel pin)
A-5792X (relief cut around barrel pin)
A-58146 (relief cut around barrel pin)

B-5898X (relief cut around barrel pin)
B-5986X (relief cut around barrel pin)
B-6224X (roll marked zastava rsb)
B-6266X
B-6286X (light zastava engravings on rsb)
B-7064X (light zastava engravings on rsb)
B-7100X
B-7102X
B-7128X
B-7178X

C-7690X
C-7803X
C-7850X
C-8005X
C-8437X
C-8670X
C-8688X
C-8937X
C-9300X
C-9304X
C-9120X
C-9427X
C-95269

D-9711X
D-9786X
D-10621X
D-11300X

On the M70B, so far from the data, looks like about 4 years of production, with production numbers not exceeding 113k. Also, it seems that about the first half of production was made with the relief cut around barrel pin, then it was changed to be solid in the B block for some unknown reason.

M70AB (milled, pin barrel, underfolder):
A-8283X
A-8288X
A-8323X
A-8811X
A-8975X
A-9712X
A-99920

B-10388X
B-10734X
B-10762X
B-11505X
B-11629X
B-11660X


M70 (milled, screw barrel, fixed stock):
A-13662
A-14280
A-2314X



M70A (milled, screw barrel underfolder):
A-1061X (cut receiver, looks to have been M70A)
A-2146X
A-2262X (cut receiver, looks to have been M70A)
B-31X9X (cut receiver, looks to have been M70A)
C-3795X (kit, M70A)
C-3813X (kit, M70A)
E-6353X
E-6482X


M72B (milled, pin barrel, fixed stock rpk):
A-3773X
B-2667X (relief cut around barrel pin)
B-3131X
C-46463

M65A (milled, screw barrel, fixed stock rpk):
A-1445X
B-17150
B-1930X

To fill in after more info:
B-1315X (front end, could be M70)
B-1821X (cut receiver M70/M70A)
A-2523X (relief cut around barrel pin, highly likely to be a milled M72B stub)
B-2890X (kit, looks to have been M70A1)
E-6785X (front end, from a stock mismatched "M70")
E-5789X (stub)
D-9918X ( M70B/AB? light Zastava engravings on RSB)

I have tried to get some info out of Zastava regarding years of manufacture, but received no reply about my serial number inquiry. Ideally if anyone has had any luck actually contacting them, one number from each block should be able to confirm years of production. Should be the same pattern as the sks, each number block represents a year, and the numbers roll over into subsequent years/blocks without restarting. At least that's how it's looking so far based on the data.

A-8XXXX
