WTB Sako M62 kit

Looking for a complete kit minus receiver (and possibly barrel ?)
IIRC someone had one for sale recently ?

RK 65 also considered.

Demilled Machine gun OK too as its going on a registered receiver.

I talked with Jeff at Hillbilly arms.
He has a few great ideas including putting in on a Sako M92 kit OR doing a Vektor CR21 conversion.

Something truly unique.

Shoulda bought a MAC 10 like everyone else :lol:

I understand why you'd want a different configuration. The sight setup on the M82 is wonky and the stocks are weak. But personally, I'd still keep it as a Valmet in some form. Perhaps build a Valmet krink like the one on Gunbroker now ? You'll need a Valmet gas block & sight, top cover, selector, a...

Stop the press.

I've always wanted a Krinkov.
Used to be the 5.45x39 caliber was dirt cheap.
Those days are no more.
So why not a 5.56 Krinkov ?
What to use as the "donor" rifle ?
Are there any cut up Russian kits out there ?

Does anyone know if the Yugo Zastava M85 M90 or M95 .223 (5,56) magazines will work ?

Converting M82 to M76

I bought a select fire M82 in 5.56 today for a great price. The thing is that it has a cracked stock AND because I shoot left handed the M82 configuration is problematic. It would be nice to do a caliber change as well to 7.62x39 but the physical and legal hurdles might not make it worthwhile. So wh...

I wonder how many a run would require to make it economically a reality ?
Everyone and their monkey makes a AR magazine where the competition is fierce.
You'd think one mfg would wise up.

Valmet 78 in full auto; thoughts ?

There have been a couple of M78's class 3's come up recently and I'm thinking of scratching that itch. HK's in 7.62 sell for 8k more so does that make a 78 at 10k a bargain ? Are these controllable ? 76's in 5.56 sell for more but why have a 5.56 when you can get a 7.62 for less ? At least those are...
