I have a Hungarian pre-ban Ak with the paratrooper underfolder stock with wood furniture. The Yugos at one time were some of the best AK variants out there. But I do not know anything about the M70 AB2

You can't go wrong with a WASR 10/63. You might want to change out the wood furniture on the rifle for a better quality wood or polymer stock. I've never had any problems with mine. They have a pretty good trigger too. It's a Tapco G2. Most of them have a threaded barrel, but the muzzle nut has been welded on. It can easily be grinded off though, just be careful not to screw up the threads. Welcome to the AK club.

Should be perfectly adequate. Who is it built by? They are not imported as whole guns. Parts are installed on US made receivers. As long as it is NOT a Century gun, I see no reason why it will not do fine.

The Yugo's do not have chrome lined bores so clean properly IMMEDIATELY after firing corrosive (or questionable) ammo. It is safest to consider all Berdan primed ammo to be corrosive (better safe than rusty).
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
