On Saturday 12/04 Zastava USA’s social media team announced that the Zastava M07-AS is now available stateside and shipping to dealers. Given the reputation of Zastava firearms and the Mauser action, this could prove to be a solid precision rifle.

According to Their Website:
The sniper rifle M07 AS is designed on the basis of the famous Mauser M98 action. The heavy profile barrel is made of chrome-vanadium steel and is cold forged, which guarantees exceptional precision, accuracy and long service life. The receiver is a polygonal shape, with a machined in Picatinny rail, which provides an easy and reliable way to install optics, and makes for a highly accurate platform to use with your desired scope.
The single trigger design can be finely adjusted. The M07AS has a mechanical safety with three positions: safe, fire and secure position, where it is possible to unlock the action, but it is not possible to fire, adding additional means of unloading the firearm safely. A threaded muzzle enables the addition of accessories such as muzzle devices, and it is covered by a thread protector. The fixed stock is made of polymer and is adjustable for cheek position, as well as length via inserts. This provides a safe and comfortable position for the shooter during firing.
