One Shot One Kill
Let me add just some recommendations(!!!Always inspect the rifle before the purchase(if possible)!!!
Since it is an AK and an underfolder
1)Bring some dummy ammo with you.You will use it to manually cycle the rifle to see if anything is alright(Misfeeding, etc).If you don't have it, buy it at your gun store.
2)Once you're in the gun store and you have the rifle in your hands, ask the owner/clerk if he minds if you disassemble it(It is not always possible).
3)Check the following.
-If the top cover fits well.Check if the sights are ok(Especially the night sights that can be folded(Rear and front iron sights).
-Check the amount of play of the bolt carrier.Its is normal that an AK rifle has some play, but we're talking about a Yugo one-It is a "tighter" version of the AKM rifle.There must not be much play.
-Check if the trigger group and the safety work well.The safety lever must not be too tight.You must be able to engage/disengage it with 1, max 2 fingers(The yugo are somehow "tighter" then any other AK rifle, but the safety must not be too much).The disconnector must release the hammer properly and the hammer must go straight backwards, not under an oblique angle(I've seen some bad builds).
-The gas tube must be removed with ease.Yugo AKs are notoriously known for been REALLY tight-The gas tube must fit well,but the gas tube lock MUST NOT BE (TOO) TIGHT!You must be able to lock/unlock it with no tools(with your bare hands)
-Check the lower handguard-It must not "wubble"/!The LH must be solidly attached to the rifle.
-Check the mag port.Rock some mags(clips) into the rifle and release them.Try with 4 or 5 different mags(Usually the M70 comes with 4 mags).Try with the yugo first then, if possible, the romanian and the russian ones.The mags should wubble a little bit, but they should stay in place(Not falling or get stuck in the rifle) and be interchangeable.Actually, the yugo ones should fit almost perfectly, the Russian and the romanian should wubble a little more(They were not made for that rifle!).Anyway...Yugo mags are the best and well known for their quality.
-Now...take a mag and place the dummy ammo in it.Put the mag into the rifle and rapidly manually cycle it.It must not be too hard to cock it.If the mag fits well and there is no apparent mulfunction(Missfeeding, double feed, etc.) then you're good to go, the rifle is ok.
-Check the buttstock.The underfolders don't have a rock-solid, ultra-stable stock.But it doesn't mean that the buttstock has to move in all direction and fold unexpectedly(completely or partially).The tighter it is the better(Actually it must not be too tight or to loose-You have to unfold it quickly and fold it without forcing it).
