I accidentally ended up with a very nice rifle i had never heard of. A Zastava model 70 Mauser. Mine is in 300 win mag. They run under 700$ very reasonable for the quality and fit and finish and a control round feed Mauser action. There made in the former Yugoslavia and I've was completely surprised by the quality and accuracy of this rifle. Would leave you $ for a better optics. I'll dig mine out and post pics
Previously they have been imported to the states under brand "Interarms mark X", and "Charles Daly".
It is general consensus that the rifles made by zastava for export are of better quality, then the ones distributed locally in former Yugo countries.
Also the ones made before 90-ies, were of higher quality, when compared to newer ones. The same goes for previously mentioned brands.
On some series they are marked with 4 digit number on the side of the receiver. The 4 digit number is marking the month and year of production.
The action on zastava is slightly shorter then original german m98 action.
Zastava had also good hystory with remington.
Remingon model 798 was barreled action made by zastava, imported and stocked by Remington, and this goes back in hystory.
It is claimed by some that the rifle used by Robert de Niro in movie deer hunter (remingotn 700) was made by zastava, at least barreled action. I cannot say, but they are advertising it.
