Manufactured at the famous Zastava Arms factory or Zavodi Crvena Zastava as it was formerly known when the country was still Yugoslavia. Behind the Zastava name is a solid Mauser action made by a company with roots back to 1853 that has been making Mausers since 1924.
This particular configuration is the M70 Standard Sporting Rifle and features a Mauser 98 style action. These rifles are one of the most popular sporting rifles available on the commercial market in Europe. The most unique feature of these rifles are their double set triggers. This feature is not something often seen on more "Americanized" rifles. This system works by pulling the rear trigger to "set" the front trigger. This allows for a very light and crisp pull of the front trigger for making that precise shot in the field. The front trigger can also be used like a conventional two-stage if you do not wish to utilize the "set" function of the rear trigger.
The barrels are made of cold hammer forged chrome-vanadium steel, which guarantees high precision, constant accuracy and durability. The barrel and receiver are finished in a finely polished blue, and the stock is made of high quality European walnut, that features a matte oil finish.
