Zastava Arms


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Does anyone have any experience with Zastava rifles from Serbia? Apparently the old Remington 788 Mauser's were made by Zastava. A lot of retailers here in Canada seem to be offering Zastava rifles (mostly rimfire, but not exclusively). I'm wondering if the quality is anywhere near that of CZ?

I think that was/is the Remington M798, recently imported. From articles I've read, I'd not hesistate to purchase one myself and have been considering getting one as a donor rifle for a custom job. For the record, I also own two CZ 550s and would still welcome a Zastava M98 clone.

Perhaps this article will shed some light:

I had an Interarms Mark X rifle that had Zastava stamped on the receiver under the stock line. Worked great and I couldn't see any problems with it.

The Zastava factory makes the Charles Daly Superior II rimfires (and DID make the Rem Mod 5 rimfire; discontinued). I can heartily recommend the Charles Daly version.

Compared to CZ, the CD is a bit more 'rough', but accuracy and function is definitely very good in the CD.

Several importers over the years bought 98 Mauser rifles from the Zastava plant. Interarms, as mentioned, Parker Hale, I think. I belive the Charles Daly Mausers, also.
Every one I've seen as been a good solid rifle.

yes several years ago Charles Daly lost the right to sole importer of the firearms to none other than Remington. Remington imported barreled actions only and had the stocks done here and sold as the Rem 788 & 798 models, where as CD had the whole rifle imported under their CD name. i'm always on the look out for one of the CD small ring series in .223 or .22 Hornet. would make for a dandy carry rifle.

I'm pretty sure that they were the 798 & 799. The 788 was (is) a budget bolt rifle from Remington (also) but was made from '67 to '83.

Yeah, I suspect that was just a typo. Made the same mistake myself not long ago.

In my opinion any rifle based on the Mauser 98 is a good'un.

EAA is the current US Importer but as others have said, Interarms, Charles Daly, Parker Hale and Remington have all imported the Zastava rifles in one form or another.

I have one of the Charles Daly actions that I built into a custom .358 Norma. While they are perhaps a bit "rough" right out of the box, though totally functional, they are perfect candidates for custom rifles because any good smith can make an incredible shooter out of one without much effort.

They are one of the best bargains in the rifle world hands down IMO.
