    The JNA used the M-64 before the M-70.

    The next two are of Rahatlakhoom's over at AKforum. The button on the left side is like the one on the M-16, it'll close the bolt.

    M-64 has never enter in service because it was just prototype of rifle which become M-70.

    On the last pic. is early model of M-70, not M-64 !

    Here are M-64 in various designs !

    AFAIK only assault rifle issued before M70 was stg.44 that was used by paratroopers. Standard issue rifle before M70 was Type 59/66(yugo SKS).

    Before M-70 , as previous posts says, was M-59/66 Yugo modification of SKS with grenade launcher sight , before that M-59 an Yugo copy of SKS without grenade launcher.

    Before that they produced M-48 a Yugo copy of German Mauser k-98.

    Before that since end of ww2 -1945, captured German and Italian weapon, so as Soviet, English and US donations in weapon.

    If it never entered service then why did used parts kits show up in the US with the M-70s? The two AKs in that picture are the prototype versions of the M-64.

    "If it never entered service then why did used parts kits show up in the US with the M-70s? The two AKs in that picture are the prototype versions of the M-64."

    Because somebody very stupid from US wrote that early M-70 is M-64 !!!

    I supose that was motivation for better sale !

    Find me a photo where is mark M-64 on reciver of Yugo rifle !

    I repeat again M-64 in many versions is just prototype so as M-65 developed from RPK with possibility to change barell!

    Of course, but we did not talk about SMG only rifles !

    Beside M-56 they produced M-49 and improved M-49/57.

    They also use German Mp-40 and rare Mp-38, so as Ppsh-41 and US donated Thompson and some Sten Mk-2.

    No, it isn't. It's M-70 just missing the compansator which is being screwd on the barrel mouth.
