    Unfortunately for me the recoil was not manageable, and I had to make adjustments. It is fine after the adjustments. The action was indeed a bit rough but is totally smooth now after working it. It is a fine rifle at affordable cost, it is not a Krieghoff or a Purdey, but it is reliable.

    Cheers

    Hi Spike,

    No, its the same stock, it may just look a bit different in the sunlight.... But I am looking around for the 798 stock or even to have one custom made, one that will make a significant difference to the recoil. However its not that bad anymore with the decelerator recoil pad on.

    Hi rohan.
    I bought zastava m70 yeasterday 308 cal. I have order the mounts and base online.. the mounts and rail i am going to order is from warne company.
    I just wanna ask from you is weither i should use medium profile or high profile mounts so that the bolt lever should not touch the scope or mounts (problem i had with brno zkk 600)....
    Waiting for reply
    Regards

    Faisal, it all depends on the individual scope. You just need to decide on the scope you want, then try mounts to make sure they work for that scope.

    Install a boyds thumbhole stock, float the barrel, install a one peace picatinny scope base and bed it. And work that bolt until buttery smooth.

    Result wil be less than 1 moa. With handloads.

    As that is what i did to my one.
