Break down of Yugoslavian AK/RPK/M-76's

1,400 7.62x 39 Folders
700 RPK
280 M-76 Countersnipers
1,120 .308 M-70s Standard Model
3,500 7.62 x 39 M 70 Standard Model

Pre bans imported prior to 1994 were 2000.
Here is the breakdown:
400 7.62 x 39 folders
200 RPK (40) in .308) and (160 in 7.62 x 39)
80 M76 8mm Countersnipers
320 .308 M70 Standard Model
1000 7.62 x 39 M 70 Standard Model

Post ban M-90 sold after 1994 there were a total of 5,000. Here is the breakdown:
1000 7.62 x 39 folders
500 RPK (400 in 7.62 x 39) and (100 in .308)
200 M-76 8mm Countersnipers
2,500 M70 7.62 x 39 Standard Model
800 M70 .308 Standard Model

The total amount of Yugo's imported was only 7,000 consistant with Customs/BATF Floats for pre-ban imports at that time. Same number for the Hungarian AKM/AKMS float. Hope this answers your questions about import numbers. As you can see the .308 Yugo RPK is the rarest of the two and the 8mm Countersnipers even rarer.

Thanks very much for posting this. Great info!

I have two of the pre ban Mitchell RPK-47s... Terrific guns. I also got lucky and found a (pre-Mitchell) American Arms underfolder. I am told there may be less than a dozen of them. Unfired, too.

Although I collect mostly Chinese, there is something very special about the Yugos. Very nicely made.
