I emailed Zastava USA and they told me that they would start importing the left handed M70s in the next few months.

Not Frank, but yes, it is a new entity.

This is very good news. Hopefully the prices will be more in line with what the RH guns were selling for. NIB ones were showing up for around $300 just a few years ago.

Their FAQ says “Sporting rifles LK M70 and LK M85 in all calibers are also made in versions suited for left-handed shooters.”

Unfortunately, those prices will never be seen again, except used. They cost more than that to the importer.

Are they going to be importing the M85, mini Mauser. I lost two in the PacNor fire and need to replace them.


"...I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprize, and independance to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks."

I don’t suppose one of these guns has been spotted in the wild anywhere yet?

I haven't seen one yet. I'm left-handed but after a lifetime of shooting RH bolts, I could never get used to the LH bolt system. I do like the cheekpiece, however.


Never mistake motion for action.

If that's the case you might like some of the RH gun/LH shooter stocks from either Boyd's or Richards Microfit. I bought one for my Turkish 98 and it makes the gun fit quite a bit better than the clubby military stock. Mine came unfinished from the bargain bin so it was less than $100.

I have found Zastava to be so unresponsive as to be borderline comatose. That's why they have been through a long list of importers. I even had one rifle show up without a magazine.

Still no sighting of a new LH gun anywhere?
