The M-70 is a modern military assault rifle developed and manufactured by Zastava Arms of Kragujevac, Republic of Serbia. The M70 is designed on the basis of famous Kalashnikov rifles from Russia, which was proven in numerous wars fought worldwide in the last sixty years of its service.

The Zastava M70 can be identified from other AK rifles by the 3 cooling slots in the foregrip.

The receiver of the M70 is 1.6mm thick (compared to 1mm receiver of the AKM), making it more accurate than a standard AKM.
