Can't tell anything from those pics.... can't read any markings. The front trunnion is stamped with a circle 10, it's Bulgarian. If its a triangle its probably Romanian AIMS, could be Izshash if triangle with arrow. Circle 11 is Polish Tantal.

The trunnion pic just popped up, definitely a Bulgarian front trunnion.

looks like a century built 74 based on the park and furniture. take the handguards off and see if the barrel has any markings on it.

It's definitely a Bulgarian front trunnion... "Double circle 10"
As in the below pic.

Barrel importation stopped in 2005, I believe. Any Century kit rifle after that would use a US barrel.

While it may be true Century did not build any 74 pattern rifles after the barrel ban there was still a tremendous amount of original barrel Bulgarian kits available well past that year.

I'm disappointed that an Arizona AK has a 10rd mag in it.

You're correct, Century sold rifles with existing kits or ones they could obtain until 1) Kits with barrels started to dry up and/or become more expensive. And 2) US barrels became more available and accepted, and more cost effective(RAS47 and C39). For example, WASR barrels are still available, but are more expensive than a Blue Mountain.
