The front upper/lower handguards of your Zastava PAP come off like any AK - nothing speial here aside from the length of the HGs.
The fixed butt of the PAP is the PITA if yours is like what I have read of on the net...
That is; there is a bolt that passes thru the butt into a trunnion inside the tail of the recvr. This is unlike any other stamped-recvr AKM 'cept the Yugos.
Also atypical is the rubber "recoil" butt pad glued to the butt. This makes it difficult to get to the bolt hidden in a recess beneath it without first removing the pad.
Be careful with the re-finish as it may be a beech - which can be a challenge. If I were to bet, it was probably already finished in a thin shellac over the wood.
ETA: They did not install a factory rear sling swivel on the Zastava PAPs. Normal AKM convention is to put it on the stock of fixed butts, while on fixed butt PAPs it is supposed to be mounted low on the left rear of the recvr.
