Default N-PAP DF "hand select" figure$$$............

How much? My next AK purchase will be an N-PAP DF. I would really prefer it had the proof markings on the right side of the rear sight block. How much?

By proof markings do you mean actual proof markings, or the zastava roll mark? Just asking because both appear on the right side of the rsb on yugo rifles, but Npaps don't have the rollmark from what I've seen. They do however have a small proof mark towards the bottom where the barrel band is, but usually at or under the handguards.

I mean the three separate "Proof markings" on the right side of the rear sight block. I remember clearly one was the year of manufacture. The other two I don't clearly remember. I think they were a pair of antlers? And a "ZIZ" maybe?

My new NPAP DF doesn't have any visible marking like that. It's a great gun at a great price form Atlantic. It could be under the front handguard as ES mentioned

If you look at Atlantics page on this and zoom on the right side pics the 3 marks are there.
They are on mine as well as a FS N-pap. I don't think it's select anything, just factory roll marks.

I noticed that as well and emailed them about it. They said some do and some do not. The two NPAPs I looked at at my local Cabelas did not have the proof marks. By Atlantic's lack of response to this post,I don't think their interested in finding me one, even at a premium$$$. I don't want to pull a dick move return on a "Not as advertised" basis either. "The one on your website advertises that they have the marks, the one I received does not." I would appreciate either a quote for a hand select or a no, Atlantic.

Sir

We do not offer hand select guaranteed custom markings . Rifles from Century can vary from batch to batch on markings and sometimes vary inside the batch that is shipped to us . All of our rifle are boxed up in a warehouse on racks. They are not on display in a gun store. I am sorry we can not accommodate your request.

What would it actually entail to take one or two rifles off the shelf ,to satisfy a customer? Not much really,anyway I'm going to check my two and see if I have proof marks.If I don't, I could care less they are a rock solid rifle.

customers with oddball hand select requests like this tend to be very hard to please

you pay an employee to dig through the pile for 15 minutes, then send out the hand select rifle. the customer complains because there's only two proof marks instead of 3 or it's not the exact 3 proofs he was hoping for

it's far more trouble than it's worth

Just buy one already OP. Hate to watch you dick around over marking only to have the PAP DFs suddenly become scares, prices shoot up, or something worse.
