Default Yugo M72 RPK Serial Number sizes

Does anyone know the size of buttstock serial number used? I have not officially measured it but was curious if someone already had that info.

10mm tall numbers stamped on buttstock. At least that is what is on a 1986 dated kit.

OP, if you need a buttstock numbered you should consider calling Two Rivers Arms and sending it to them. They have character stamps that are not only the correct height but also of the correct font used on Zastava arms. The price to do this is small - work and shipping is probably less than the cost of a single character stamp.

Harbor freight number stamps. They have many different sizes. Therebis a set that is close enough to the actual size of the numbers

You must have alot of money to burn if you would pay someone to do such a trivial Task with readily available number punch sets of the correct size. Cmon man. 3/8" number punch sets are cheap. Even a straight edge and tape will make them nice and straight.

The Serbs don't seem to have worked too hard to set the numerals up straight. Some are a little cockeyed.
