The Yugoslavian company Zastava released the M76 in the mid-1970s. Since then it has become the standard issue rifle for snipers in the Yugoslav army. During the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, it was used by several sides; it saw action in both Bosnia and Kosovo.
Design and Performance
While the body of M76 is virtually identical to the Kalashnikov AK-47, the rifle featured several modifications. Fire is purely semi-automatic. The barrel has been elongated and strengthened so that the 7.92 X 57 Mauser cartridge, which is better suited for long-range targets, can be used. Both the stock and the pistol grip have been modified to make them more comfortable for the shooter. In addition to the regular iron sights, a side-rail on the left wall of the receiver has been added to accept telescopic sights. The typical scope used is a ZRAC ON-M76B.
The M76 is relatively accurate, with a minute of angle of 1.5-2. For the average sniper, a maximum effective range of 800 meters (around 850 yards) is achievable. Recoil is described as being modest,
