Dear Friends,
I am a bit confused after looking at different Zastava M57s here on this forum, as there is a difference in company markings on the slide. Some of those have "Zastava Serbia" engraved on, whereas the others are engraved with "Zastava Arms" along with the company's logo. I've attached a few pics from this forum for reference and further elaboration.
Please guide me.

@Shahsjs
Me too waiting for input of other members, as TTs are most commonly and most perfectly copied so we must be clear about this issue.

You seem absolutely right as Dara people are at their best in making TT clones, so we should consider this fact while planning a purchase of M-57

You both r right.some thing is really wrong with new m 57tt.i cant say any thing about these tts,whether its a local one or real one.but the magazines with mine are totally fake one and third class with no computerized no and any other company mark.When i put more than 7 bullets in it always gives me a problem,like jamming and other related problems.

Can anyone give me a reliable source about m57 being made in Darra?

Also Shahsjs the mags on my gun purchased in jan 10 has no markings in it and i bought a 2 spare mags after wards which i believed at the time were not genuine but all 4 work fine >As far as more than 7 rounds issue all M57 react that way it is impossible(almost) to strip rounds off the clip by hand but the gun will chamber the rounds as long as the slide properly raked/powerstked (sp)

Hi Friends,After few weeks i received e-mail from Zastava arms R&D manager about the confusion we all are having.So here are his words.
"
Hello Mr. Shah

Logo writen on Your M 57 is official logo of our factory and
means that Your piece is from the newest production. Changes in
signing of the weapon are due to the changes in the name of
factory through the time flow and demands of market. Regarding the magazine
we don't put any sign on it.


My best regards

Zastava arms
R&D Manager
Aleksandar Mlasdenović"

@Shahsjs
what did they say regarding those faulty magazines? Have you asked that from them?

Shahsjs
31-01-2011, 07:00 PM
Yes ACHILLES bhi i asked about that as well.He simply answered me in this way"it is wondering for me that You have remarks on its quallity. Anyway You can put Your complaint
about it to Your dealer and to try to solve that problem".
So are dealers responsible for that kind of magazines?

ACHILLES

Magazines which came along the gun from the factory are good they have no problem. I Purchased two more so not sure about those two.

Not much bad but now its difficult to judge original magazines without marking with that of local one.

well some of the m57 were made back when yugoslavia existed. It was then known as crevena zastava arms. Now after the disintegration of yugoslavia into serbia, its known as zastava arms serbia. Hope to a have answered the questions
