    Default Zastava 5.56 Pistol (Car option for SHTF)

    I am thinking of this as something that I can throw in the car and go, and as my main weapon should i dump my car and proceed on foot with my BOB.

    Few questions:

    My understanding based on quick search - quality is on par with Saiga but spare parts are pain in the arse to find.

    Same goes for rails, stocks, compensator, etc ....

    Correct ?

    How difficult is it to get good with it at 50 yards as it is with Saiga 7.62 ?
    I cycle reliability on par with Saiga 7.62 ?

    Thank you !

    They are built like a tank. Heavy trunnion, heavy receiver...and they are very cheap right now. Fairly accurate for a 5.56 pistol. You could headshot a zombie at 50 yds every time.

    The trick to shooting such pistols is to rear mount a sling that runs over your shoulders and down the front on the other side. You push the gun out like a rifle against the sling. You could carry two hooked together the same way.

    I have one of the PAP 5.56 M85NP vs PV pistols. It accepts AR magazines. I decided to modify it into a rifle vs a pistol. I added a 100 series Bulgarian CLHF barrel and custom gas tube & piston. I have to decide which folding stock I want to use and a final finish..

    Or put the arm brace on it.

    oh ok... thats not what i thought he was talking about..

    so he was actually talking about a PAP85? yeah those are pretty cool...

    ive got PAP92's though..

    but in 5.56 pistols i use the EXTAR EXP. its lighter, cheaper & made in the USA!! (YES we sell them at TEC Tactical.. shameless plug)

    As much as I like the Yugos, given need over country of origin, I'd go with the EXTAR.

    A pair of Extars would be neat. 3' of strap to hook them together would be perfect.
