Those are mine, 329 was kind enough to post them in the correct section, I have the same post in the AK general discussion. They did not fit into a .223 bolt, they were too big, my plan is to sell them but I wanted to make sure of what they are, I think they are .308 Valmet parts as well. I bought ...

Firing pin/extractor ID

I think these are for a Valmet .308. They do not fit a .223 bolt. I'd like to sell them so I need to know for sure. Anyone know? Thanks!

Unless it's Valmet I would be very reluctant to use it. I have seen photos of IMI Galil drums, but again, nothing for the Valmet.

Yes, those mounting screws are butt ugly. Anyone know anything about the Neil Smith M78 full auto conversion on Gunbroker in 7.62X39?

I haven't used them is so long I can't be sure! I don't load mags to the max capacity but usually leave them one or two rounds shy. I just recall failure to feed and thinking I'm never going to use them again.

I have 4 of them, and they don't seem to work in my M76. All I use now are factory Valmet mags

Blue Force gear makes a sling for the M249 and one for the M240 that have Nomex webbing straps that attach to the barrel end of the rifle. With full auto, any kind of plastic sling will melt onto the gun and it's a mess. You kind also buy Nomex shoelaces on line and make your own sling attachments. ...

I think the demand for original Valmet rifles peaked during the 10 year Clinton assault rifle ban. Collectors and shooters who are in-the-know have largely satisfied their appetites for Valmet rifles and are moving to other interesting firearms. Younger collectors and shooters may not be all that f...

Valmet M76 parts kit on Gunbroker

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=431232059 Up to $500 with 8 days remaining. Everything like new except no receiver. It will be interesting to see how much less this will sell for vs. just buying an M76 to use as a parts gun and still have the receiver left over. Seems like the Va...

Nice rifle, it was on Gunbroker for awhile. The problem with all these rifles are the frigging magazines. The Valmet .308 are just too expensive.

If you won the auction, it's yours. I'd go straight to the administrators with the complaint.
