FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
Zastava Arms is a Serbian manufacturer of firearms and artillery, based in Kragujevac, Serbia, and founded in 1853.
It is the leading producer of firearms in Serbia and is a large contributor to the local defense industry.
Zastava Arms produces and exports a wide variety of products to over forty countries.
The Zastava M70 sporting rifle features an original Mauser locking system (available chambered in many different center-fire rifle calibers), a chrome-vanadium steel barrel, and an oiled and polished walnut stock available in a variety of styles.
It includes iron sights (fixed front post and adjustable, flip-up rear) and the receiver is also threaded with protective screws to attach scope mounts.
This particular rifle includes a double-trigger system, with one trigger for a standard pull, and the other a hair-trigger.
The .30-06 Springfield cartridge, 7.62×63mm in metric notation and called “.30 Gov’t ’06” by Winchester, was introduced to the United States Army in 1906 and later standardized; it remained in use until the late-1970s.
The .30-06 remained the U.S. Army’s primary rifle and machine gun cartridge for nearly 50 years before being replaced by the 7.62×51mm NATO (commercial .308 Winchester) and 5.56×45mm NATO (commercial .223 Remington), both of which remain in current U.S. and NATO service.
It remains a very popular sporting round, with ammunition produced by all major manufacturers.
This gun is in good to very good, used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
The finish on the barrel is excellent with no discernible marks, while the finish on the receiver is also very good with only a few light marks in places.
There is some light wear to the bolt handle and a few, light scratches on the trigger guard.
There are a few, small spots of light surface rust from storage, which can easily be removed.
The wooden stock is in excellent condition with no scratches or dents, but some light fur in places.
The rifle is fitted with a double trigger/hair trigger, and includes a leather sling.
This firearm is suitable for medium to big game hunting and long-range, precision rifle shooting.
