This may not seem to bright of a question ...but here it goes anyhow.
Is the Yugoslavain Crevena Zastava Mod 70 a actual copy of sorts of he CZ 70(CZ 50) and if so does it use the same mags as the mod 50?
I have aquired a Zastava Mod 70 and the rounds keep nose diving and the slides catching when trying to go to battery. Ive taken the one and only magazine I have for it and took it apart and clean it well. I even turned the spring around fron to back ect and then back again. Still same issue. I checked the feed ramp no issues there that I can tell. When loading the mag sometimes I notice the rounds are seating as shoul and have relaoded the mag and got them to seat right. I cant see where the problem is . Weak Spring?
I got the Gun to cycle through about 4 magazines and then ...jam... relaoded and seated the rounds agian and emptied the magazine twice more then the same thing again.
Well Im baffled. Its suprisingly accurate and fun when its goes bang.
But heck without the mag and the current issues its just as a useless paper weight!

Makarov.com has a pic of this.(http://makarov.com/guns/0262.htm)
Im sure hoping to get this thing running a bit better as it feels really solid and as mentioned already very accurate as most .32 caliber weapons are!

No, the Zastava 70 is not at all a copy of the CZ70. I can't imagine the magazines for one would work in the other. Sounds like you might want to call Wolff and see about what sort of a mag spring might substitute: have your mag disassembled and be ready to describe the number of coils and the size of the gap between the coils to them.

I agree: .32s are fun and accurate! :) Hope you can get it working.

Erich,
Thank you very much Sir. That swhat I need to know. That saved me some dissapointment.
Since posting a similar question on anothe rboard I have recieved word that Marstar upp in Canada has the Magazines for the hadngun for $20 Canadian about $16.50 USD!
I guess its the ol' history bug in me but I love the old military/Police issue Semi-autos and revovlers!
Im not resting till I actually get this one to functioning @ 100%!

Good luck with it! It looks like a neat gun. Marstar is held to be a good company by all the folks on Tuco's (or gunboards, or whatever they're calling it these days ;) ).

Marstar at one time had .380 bbls for the Zastava (all it needed was a bbl/mag switch to go from .32 to .380) but they were out as of a few months ago. Folks are hoping they bring some of the .380s in to the US.

I'm a big fan of the Toks, so I like to see these guns they reverse-engineered out of them.

I like the Tokarevs too. All I ever had wasa pair of the Chinese norinco copies but they were accurate and depeandabe. I like the 7.62x25 cartridge too.
Come to think of it I had another chinese Norinco that hada 9mm barrel in i too but it was a hardball only tosser! ;)
