You're welcome.

Another side effect: this ammo smells funny... but it's cheap and it shoots fine. Not one failure (more than 200 now)!

Barnaul is good stuff. Don't know if the soft points will feed right in an AK action, especially a Valmet which has a pretty violent feeding process.

Thanx for the info GoodGuy but my Valmet is in .223! (I wish I had one in 7.62!

It looks kewl!!! I have ordered an AK-47 top cover with a picatinny rail (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=714473) it's a gamble if this one will fit my Valmet but for that price I'm willing to take my changes. I will let you know if it fits (shipping takes a few weeks so we have ...

Oooh...well that changes the situation! :D

Stupid E-butt! I almost missed out on a beautiful handguard! (but also my fault, I didn't read the whole description).

Well, if you do ship outside the US (rhetorical question) consider me as a potential buyer!

Ah well, for €30 I'm willing to take the risk. If it doesn't fit I'll use it on my Arsenal. :wink:

Will an AK-47 top/receiver cover fits a Valmet M76 (.223)

Ok, ok, before you guys start yelling at me, I was just wondering if a standard AK-47 top/receiver cover will fit my Valmet M76 (.223)?

Ok, thanx for the pictures. Tomorrow I will look under both covers to see if there's a difference (funny that I didn't do that before I got this idea to place a rail on top of it). I will place some pics too. But for now I'm gonna enjoy New Years Eve! A hour or two and we'll be celebrating the comin...
