Default Yugo selectors

Are they all interchangeable on all the stamped models?

I am not sure and it seems to be 1 of those questions that is fuzzy. Some are stamped
1mm and some are stamped 1.5mm so no. But finding selectors for the yugo is like finding
hungarian belt loops.

Yugo selectors aren't too hard to come by with all the kits that have been parted out, but they are not quite as plentiful as AKM/74 selectors. They are a little shorter than AKM/74, but all yugos should interchange between yugo models (at least this has been my experience), BUT not all are "correct" and only yugo UF selectors will work with yugo UF stocks. There are cosmetic differences between some of the others, this is a good reference pic:

There are also the BHO notched versions of the stamped fixed and UF selectors that can be found on PAP imports and maybe some later zastava produced rifles (not 100% sure on the latter)

Ok that is good stuff. But they are, IMO, hard to find. I would like to find a bu for my ab2
and just gave up because of the confusion on different selectors.

Fkin Yugos got to love em..

I put an M72 selector into my M92 and it works fine despite the half mm thickness difference.

That's because 1mm receivers have embossing around selector that makes it same thickness as yugo and milled receivers.
Trust me, with all the mutts ive built, they all can functionally interchange. Maybe with small mod like with underfolder or notches but they work

No paint, no mutts, no finish no extra grooves, no embossing around this or that and no small modifications. That you do not explaine. Just tell me what the hell fits. Please

The top 3 in es pic will fit your ab2 from the sound of it. The lower tab on those selectors is smaller and forward placed so it will clear the stock cut outs I believe the other safeties with the tab where the selector notches/divit are for fixed stocks.

I ran into a similar issue looking for the yugo selectors yesterday.

Cool now find one. I do not seem to be able. It is not that I need one it is I want one.

Plus the top 3 have a tab for the thumb so you can push through the u/f stock.

I get it and could not see it because of the angle of the picture.

es shoot one from the 15* lower angle. THANKS. Bad

Just buy another M70AB2 for a spare.
Now wasn't that easy?

NP. Took me a while to see it, I like hands in better than pics. The supply is spotty, Im investigating if its possible to easily modify the akm pattern to fit, in regaurds to making the mm enhanced safety lever for yugos. I think a universal yugo model is possible

$600? You mean $60, right? Unfortunately that's about the going rate for the uf selectors lately, sometimes you can find them a little cheaper. I think they're scarce due to people buying them up for m85/92 pap underfolder conversions, same as the 4 rivet stocks. I just did one on a cheap m92 I picked up, but fortunately I had the stock and selector set aside from a npap df kit I cannibalized/parted out last year

No buddy I was reacting to Ram Rod saying buy another AB2. It was 600. I have been looking for a while for the correct selector.
