Default Wasr 10/63uf question

Just picked up a wasr 10/63uf for a good price. I've had a couple of these in the past. This one is import marked on the bottom of the barrel forward of the hand guard. I've never seen this before. Is this something cia did toward the last rifles imported or the first? Thanks

Are you going to post a picture, or do we just have to use our imagination?

You didn't say, does the RECEIVER have importer's (CAI, CIA, Century's) name and address, or no.. only on the barrel ?

I've had a couple of the 2007, 2008 UF imports and barrels were not rollmarked, is the first I recall seeing. Neat.

Yep, mine is from 2009, and i handled a goodly number of the '07-08' batch as well. Quite unusual...and hey what's wrong with relying on one's imagination for how things appear? hmmmhmmm

Its always neat to see something a little unusual and out of the ordinary.

The first time I handled I wasr 10/63 under folder I was extremely biased before even seeing or holding one. I had read a lot about their poor reputation and wasr 10/63 was dirt to me. That is, until I had it in my hands. I was immediately impressed.

It took several years before I got my own wasr 10/63 but I am a believer in these firearms. Mine is quite crude in fact, its hardly perfect. Some of you would probably sell it immediately due to there being an imperfect magwell, some minor cant to the sights, an improperly fitting dust cover etc.

But its reliable, its AK accurate and I find the rifle quite maneuverable. Very handy, light. I'm pleased with it, in fact its my go to rifle. I'm a simple man and its a simple rifle.
