Default WASR underfolder

I have been lurking here a while. I had a WASR before with a wood fixed stock , sold it. Just bought an underfolder. I see a lot of discussion about WASER 10 and 10/63. My underfolder has 19/63UF. Date on the frame is 1970 with the triangle and 1 inside. Is this something new?

It is a great gun as was the other one. Looking to get another. (maybe a Tantle instead).

from what ive heard on multiple sites is that the triangle on the receiver means it was either used in the military at one point or it means its a greater quality receiver...

i really cant remember myself maybe someone can clear it up for me...

As of 2008, there are GP WASR-10/63 rifles which are being made from demilled military rifles. Look for a triangle with arrow (some only have a triangle) on the front trunnion. Quality is much better with these.

^ From wikipedia.

I would assume that they might put the triangle in other places as well.

I have the same underfolder, it's a really good gun and I love it to death.

You are right, it has an arrow, not a 1 in the triangle. It is very well made and super cool. What about the 19 number instead of a 10?

The 9 could be a deformed 0 maybe? There is no model 19/63 that I am currently aware of.

Also, I can not find anything on WASR 19/63's, there's one on auction arms, but it is most likely just a deformed 0, Century is known for sometimes making mistakes like that.

The 10 stands for 10 round capacity. They import them that way to get by the sporting clause. Century then opens the receiver up to accept high capacity magazines. It would be very odd of them to take the 10 out of the model. So my guess is that it is just a deformed 0 as well.

Ok, thanks for the input. 0 or 9, it shoots well.

Liking the forum so far.

Congrats on the UF. I have a 1983 WASR 10/63 fixed stock myself, getting a 4x scope for it right now, and the next mod will be either a retractable stock or new hand guards with a couple rails on them.
