A .308 AK-47: Zastava M77 Overview

A .308 AK-47: Zastava M77 Overview

In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves is at Zastava USA to discuss the new import of the Zastava M77 rifle. This .308 rifle is very similar to Zastava’s flagship M70 AK-type rifle and almost identical to the Zastava M90 .223 rifle, with a few differences other than the obvious caliber difference. Note that per the video, furniture that works with the M70 and M90 should also work with the M77. Zastava now offers three calibers of AK to the US civilian market, including 5.56mm, .223, and of course 7.62×39. Check out this overview for a description of the features and accessories available for this new .308 AK.

    Now they should have one in 7.62x54r. Until then, nyet comrade. Mosin is fine

  2. P. Cameron on January 2, 2023 at 12:49 am

    10:13 Or you could just gas the gun correctly from the factory….

  3. Kc Gunner on January 2, 2023 at 12:50 am

    I’ve had one for 10 years yall r late 2 the show.

  4. Serd Radion on January 2, 2023 at 12:51 am

    Lower part of the handguard should be shaped for the fingers grip: rounded and ribbed to better fit the fingers, for the better ergonomics.
    This way is better lined up in the gun shape, which makes more aesthetical.
    Ergonomics is more important

    I bought this rifle because of this video and am currently converting M14 magazines to fit due to mag restrictions in my state forbidding me from acquiring High capacity M77 magazines. Thanks to the conversion, I can use my old M14 magazines for it flawlessly (with the benefit of the magazines acting as a BHO on empty.)

    I didn’t notice till the second minute it’s 308!!!!!!what I’m going crazy lol that’s awesome and it’s zastava

  8. Javier Martinez jr on January 2, 2023 at 12:54 am

  9. Sameer Khan on January 2, 2023 at 12:57 am

    This gun could be ALOT MORE beautiful then it current but HWAT A BRILLIANT IDEA.. Definitkey a worthy competitor for HCAR.

  10. braxton corbie on January 2, 2023 at 12:58 am

    Can anyone tell me if this uses a standard ak trigger or does it require a larger set up. Wanting to swap with alg

  11. Gaydolf Shitler on January 2, 2023 at 12:58 am

    Pick one up before the price goes up.

  12. Sigma Male on January 2, 2023 at 12:58 am

    If the FN FAL and the AKM had a baby

  13. Piff Smith on January 2, 2023 at 12:59 am

  16. Ajit on January 2, 2023 at 1:06 am

    Guns.Not Politics.Awesome

  17. Kyle Sul on January 2, 2023 at 1:08 am

    I KNEW. I was just sitting in class when the thought of a 308. Winny AK passed my mind and I knew some crazy bastard out there had to have done it before… And I was right

  18. Tk210ism on January 2, 2023 at 1:08 am

    Looks over gased

  19. 🌸Cody Von.🌸 on January 2, 2023 at 1:08 am

    Balkan hitters at its finest.

  20. noerden91 on January 2, 2023 at 1:08 am

    love the look of the gun but not the stock it looks like shit xD but its probably comfy tho

  21. ManyThingsIDo on January 2, 2023 at 1:09 am

    It’s interesting how civilian Zastava is praised abroad, but for domestic market we are offered utter garbage.

  22. Dave Donotwantshare on January 2, 2023 at 1:10 am

    I love the gun, but it looked to as if the sight mount moved during each shot in opening of this video.

  23. Robert Schweppenhauser on January 2, 2023 at 1:12 am


  24. Javier Martinez jr on January 2, 2023 at 1:14 am

    Adjustable gas block nice

  25. ThatGuyKappa on January 2, 2023 at 1:15 am

    zastava needs to work on quality control, poor incomplete finish, poorly set rivets, over tightened pistol grip to the point it bent the grip plate, crappy cheap no name plastic fore grip instead of the high quality hogue one, better look yours over with a fine tooth comb before you complete the transaction, mags are usa made top notch quality fit and finish, but you can’t find them in stock anywhere

  26. The Heat Inferno on January 2, 2023 at 1:15 am

    Looks badass 🇺🇸🤝🇷🇸 ✌

  27. Javier Martinez jr on January 2, 2023 at 1:15 am

    When the bolt carrier is chromed like that the action is faster and smoother less recoil etc just due to how well chrome can stay lubricated and greasy ,that’s the part I noticed right away

  28. MohawkDriver on January 2, 2023 at 1:15 am

    Zastava rules. Seriously. Big .308 fanboi here. .308 f@cks all.

  29. MrBlonde294 on January 2, 2023 at 1:15 am

    in germany we have the zastave m2010 model line with a 308 and 223, but its its kinda weird giving the same name but different caliber for it, but the 308 would be the m77 and the 223 the m21
    they also cost the same price whats weird, but those are 1000€ rifles
    affordable rifles for hunting and sporting
    i like those, i looking forward to buy one

  30. Jrd86 on January 2, 2023 at 1:16 am

    $1400 is great price

  31. The Explorer on January 2, 2023 at 1:17 am

    The Serbians have the most powerful AK in existence.

  32. Don Hitt on January 2, 2023 at 1:18 am

    Wonder if anyone is making wood furniture for it? Or if any existing furniture out there would fit it

  33. Faulted on January 2, 2023 at 1:19 am

    Chamber it in 7.62x54r and I’ll buy one.

  34. Flea Tactical on January 2, 2023 at 1:20 am

    13:20 MAXON’S!!!!! My 2nd home!

  35. Mr.Martyr on January 2, 2023 at 1:22 am

    My only complaint is I wish they’d review the guns as they come. This clearly has a considerable amount of aftermarket additions.

  36. jspec1120 on January 2, 2023 at 1:25 am

    Slap some wood back on it, and call it good.

  37. Luke D on January 2, 2023 at 1:33 am

    I allways de 922R my rifles. Example I would call century and I could get a piston, FCG and bakelite grip delivered for under 10 dollars, would buy a NOS piston rivet from apex.

    Would buy a metal stamp that said US.
    Buy surplus good laminated furniture and a muzzel device.

    Refinish the trigger to its crisp and stamp US, grind off the weld marks as they weld on the pistons then remove it, put a Romanian piston in and rivet it as it’s really important the piston has some wiggle for reliability.

    Scribe us on the piston.

    Get a surplus T nut and heat up the US stamp put it on the bakelite handguard, and put some black ink on the stamp for the butstocks and upper and lower handguard.

    Put on a surplus usualy muzzle but as the scoop does not seem to do anything maybe only in full auto I have some with the scoop and some 74s with a surplus break.

    I really like what Zastava USA is going I got my M70 and it’s amazing, century was pinching penny’s and it made them awfull now they are the best AKs out their.

    I only had a month before I had to leave the US and probably can’t come back for another 6 months but I have a Zastava 5.56 AK at my FFL and I plan on getting the M77.

    I have a older M77 so can sell it.

    Not interested in the M91 as I have a converted vepr.

    Would love to see them make a M76 8mm

    I have a preban M76 with no US made parts and I modified an MG15 mag so I can have a big 8mm AK that holds 27 rounds and I love it so much.

    I think the M91 is being made as it’s needed in a war right now lol.

    I also hope Zastava could make some more Mauser rifles for hunting as they are great quality.

    I know they will import the .50bmg black arrow soon.

    I have no idea if they still make the MG42 clones but a semi version in the US in 8mm or .308 would sell like crazy.

    It would be nice to see some more Yugo toks they also made a realy nice Sig clone in 9mm

  38. Flea Tactical on January 2, 2023 at 1:34 am

    Is it just me, or is that whole rifle flexing in the slow-mo? Is that normal? Looks like something is loose. Compared to an AR at least.

  39. Flinty McDuff on January 2, 2023 at 1:37 am

    I want one. Love my M70. Edit: now I have one. Great rifle.

  40. Jackson Sinclair on January 2, 2023 at 1:37 am

    Why the hel is the same rifle in 7.62x54r (m91) twice as expensive as the one in .308? (M77). They are similiar enough there is no way production costs that much more.

  41. powerhail on January 2, 2023 at 1:40 am

    That sight mount was bouncinggg

  42. Ron Chramosta on January 2, 2023 at 1:40 am


  43. freedoms seed on January 2, 2023 at 1:43 am

    The only thing I could focus on was his finger slapping the trigger 🤣

  44. Yippee Threeeight on January 2, 2023 at 1:43 am

    Cool looking gun. I like those handguards. Having to change them, ups the price. It’s still a cool gun, but they should ship it with those handguards.

  45. Colonel Panic on January 2, 2023 at 1:44 am

    Just curious, but why an M77 instead of a SA58 (FAL)?

  46. Ronnie Bowers on January 2, 2023 at 1:44 am

    Did anyone see how the optic moved around when shooting

  47. hunterhalo on January 2, 2023 at 1:44 am

    i swear to god if nikita adds this to tarky, its going to be the next rat gun

  48. Dan Lo on January 2, 2023 at 1:45 am

    I picked one up around 10 years ago

  49. M.Đ on January 2, 2023 at 1:47 am

    BS.its like every AK.nothing changing

  50. Ed on January 2, 2023 at 1:48 am
