Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Hi everyone I'm new here and I just jumped on a M57 but I'm trying to gauge a the year it would have been made. It has the C prefix but it is stamped with 97 under the retaining clip and has no crest on the slide. I have attached a few pictures and any help would be appreciated. ImageImageImage

I have had this M57 for a while w/ a F196XXX S/N. I believe it is 1963 birth year.
It has the "crappy" add-on safety. It has a nice feel and shoots very well.

Not a 1965, military used Tok. More recent and a great shooter due to a mint barrel.The only better ones are the former military ones with the GlocK trigger safety that can be converted back to no safety.
Your sterile slide, M57 is a 1997 date. It has a 1990s C serial with civilian marked parts. see page 4 about the middle of the page. These generally are like new condition. See the lower link in the quote from page 4 :

Looks like a M75 A Yugo civilian model with non military grips that have the later Zastava-Arms Company marked grips. You see the a large C and smaller Z inside a circle trade mark of the Zastava company with a production date of 93 for 1993. The M75 A came in original 7.62x25 while a similar looking model the M70A came in 9mm. Magazines may be sterile- no markings lacking a electro number and base loop. There may be a small electro inscribed Z on parts and some had a small electro inscribed circle with a C and z trade mark at the base of the pistol. These pistols had the military features removed: Mag loop, lanyard loop on the pistol, no Yugo crest, and non military, unnumbered matching magazines. This is a newer, non military version to sell. Generally these are mint, NIB, never used pistols. They have a C serial number & no crest. Some came chromed- the Zastava factory adapted so they could sell as many as possible to make money. see this link : viewto ... 3&start=15

They are always changing the safety and markings as time goes on. I think 92/93 was a change over former military production to civilian production- so a lot of odd ball attributes are observed. It should be a nice pistol to fire. What do the inside markings on the parts look like. Be sure to clean the little guy- some have cosmo goo inside the firing pin chamber which is a dog to take down without parts jumping all over. Look for filings and rough machining on these-safety may hang up and need a little polish. Trigger will be gritty, with a hard pull also needs some polishing of the assy. Grips may have plastic shavings under the edges. Lub the trigger assy inside and safety mech. It depends on who made it, some are machined very nicely like the military pistols, others look like a drunk made them showing lots of milling marks. Yours seems to have a nice finish and it may be the same on the inside milling details. Yours has the newer barrel stamp and the 93 date.

:arrow: Your is similar to mine dated 92 that I got from Todd at family and is shown in detail on pages 2-3. Please take a look. It has more military features, but they are very similar. If possible, when you take yours down, please show the parts markings so others can see how different or similar each of our 1990s dated, non crested pistols are. Both have a C serial #. Mine still has the military grips and loop. My Trigger/hammer assy. has some rough maching like it came from a different source. It was also marked odd with a set of initials? Our exterior finish on each pistol is very well done- perfection. My frame machining is also nicely done. However, my electro penciled parts assy. number appears to have been ground off and my matching number rewritten. Like the frame number by the ejection port was done for another pistol or written down incorrectly on the first attempt. The slide to frame fit is smooth. Always grease the rails. More pictures of you pistols details would be great for others to see on such a similar example, if possible, PLEASE :pray: show how each part is marked. Thank You.

I had a suspicion that it was a late 90's but wanted to make sure. Now all I have to so is put some rounds through it.
