My understanding is Century buys these from Serbia and adds a nicer Tapco trigger. For wood models they take an existing synthetic stock then remove it. The wood furniture they add looks like pure crap to me. I really have not seen many wood variants that I have liked these days so why not leave well enough alone?
Also I'd like to see if an under folder conversion is available for this. Anybody know of any?
Plain and simple:The rifle seen in the pictures you posted is based on the Zastava M70 B3(but with an AKM trunnion.The B3 was designed with a fixed stock.Anyway:It's all about the receiver.If you want to switch to an underfolder, you have three options:
1)To buy the receiver of a AB3 and replace the B3 receiver.The AB3 is the underfolder version of the B3.It should fit perfectly.
2)To modify the receiver and the rear trunnion of the B3 and by drilling the the openings to mount the underfolding buttstock on it(pretty complicated)
3)Buy a AB3 which has a "native" underlfolding buttstock.Upgrade it.
