This word, I'm assuming a name, is engraved on my Yugo RPK. Anyone have any clues as to the meaning? To me it looks like it says "YPOW"

Looks like Cyrillic alphabet, so it reads "oorosh". Probably the name of its previous owner. Sounds like a name, anyway.

Yep, just checked, Urosh is a name over there.

Let me guess, Yugo SKS. Yes, that's Serbian Cyrillic. Урош=Urosh=Oorosh

Name dates back to this guy, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Uro%C5%A1_V_of_Serbia

Nope, right country wrong gun. It's a Yugo M70B1 parts kit.
