Default Do people like the Yugo M85PV?

I think they are awesome but there seems to be few threads or posts from owners. Do people like them?

I have one. Tapco makes a Magazine for it, or used to. The Yugo steel mags for the Pistol/ rifle are also of course the standard magazine and are first rate magazines.
Many discount AK Pistols, and for that matter AR Pistols, and for a variety of reasons.
Adding a Brace aids in stability and aiming, but can still be fired with out traditional aiming - ie; from the hip or side, or using a bungie type sling. Great SUV or Truck Guns in a rifle caliber.

No chrome lining in the barrels have always been the main reason I avoid Yugo stuff, plus some of the furniture is really funky.

I've hunted an M85PV for a long time. I almost bought one several times when they were being imported for $~400 but somehow the money was always needed elsewhere.

Next thing I knew it was the M85NP with the goofy looking AR mag adapter.

Then by the time I got around to being okay with the NP, the NP up and got discontinued.

The M85PV is on a short list of 'must buy' AK variants I want, but sadly there are few for sale and the folks that sell them seem to want $1k or more. Crazy.

I saw one local a while ago for around $475-500 something, can’t remember, but I wasn’t interested as I already had an M92

Now if it had been the model that takes STANAG... different story

My buddy sold me one. I am supposed to SBR it. My only gripe was non standard parts in some areas but it is a 5.56 AK after all. I love it. Just can never find enough owners to talk guns with about it.
