Default where da N-PAP's at?

Around Christmas time the ones with the black synthetic stocks where selling for $480, but I could find surplus wood. Now several vendors have the wood, some with even trench art, but I don't see anyone stocking N-PAP's. Are they in a lull, or is Century waiting till they can get close to 7 bills for them like the WASR's? I could barely justify the $500 or so for them, but good luck finding one that isn't new old stock for nearly $700. I found a MAK-90 for that and can't believe with their rear trunnion issue that they would command such a premium.

I don’t think they’re being imported anymore and may never be again.

The original two rivet rears had some problems. The DF and later 3 rivet Pap rifles are good to go.

Heard there not going to import anymore. I guess Century is going to set the market. Glad I got my m70ab2. I think any of the imports are going to skyrocket in price over the next few months. I guess they'll join the ranks of the 107fr.

it's the opposite. the original N-paps had 3 rivets., the ones from 2016 on had 2 rivets (except for the DF as it has a different rivet patterin)

according to century, Zastava isn't giving them any due to being overwhelmed with the supply for military contracts, but they plan on bringing them back when Zastava gets more in for them.

That makes sense. I never could figure out how they went wrong using the original m70 rear trunnions.

the trunnions were never the problem in Rob's N-pap failure... what it was was the weak recoil spring causing the carrier to beat the living hell out of the trunnion, and it caused some receiver cracking right around the rear trunnion rivets.

yeah, it's a "who knows" type of thing right now. I shoudl have grabbed an N-pap in polymer furniture when they were $479.99 at Grabagun, but I DID get one of the DF's for $535 shipped a couple months before they vanished.

Your exactly right. I think everyone is smart enough to know that the 2 or 3 remaining imports coming in are on shaky ground anyway and can be shut off at anytime. I'm just glad I have my M70AB2.

Incredible thing - A supposedly strong 2nd Amendment President and Republican Congress and State Dept and AG and we have the situation that we have regarding imports of AK's? The Russians are still selling AK's (Saiga and other types commercially and military in around 120 countries), and the other AK producers are selling as well - just not in the Land of the Free............ Yea - something is definately not right with that picture.

You've got it backwards, the old style had three rivets and the new have two.

And the rear trunions are just fine.

Say what you will about NPAP's but I still think they are great rifles. I like the fit and finish on them more than I do on the WASR. I can also shoot very well with mine. I'm glad I bought one as well as a DF before the supply dried up.

F' me gently with a chain saw already. They were like cheaper than RAS47's for awhile there now the few scalpers that have them want like $700 or more. When Century brings them back they'll have an improved rear trunnion and some proprietary recoil spring and start at $800 I bet.

Century's website has the thumb hole hi-cap that states ask dealer for pricing. Anyone care to guess the MSRP?

Century saw how so many, here, said the N-PAPs suck and decided to quit importing them... [That's sarcasm.]

It's amazing how no one misses anything until it's gone.

I'm happy with the one I got from Atlantic, early last year, and I am glad I did. I figured that they'd dry up like everything else. We just don't have the option to be choosy anymore.

Yeah, seriously sad but I blame the Russian Collusion Intrusion mantra screamed by Demoncraps and minute by minute re-parroted by MSM Presstitutes, the Demoncrap's SuperPac.

O-Papa + N-Paps = NO Paps!
