Saw it, loved it and unfortunately can't afford it. Even if I could, the People's Republic of Illinois won't allow them in the hands of any good citizens. What a beautiful full-auto firearm!

Miku: If you are wondering about the Valmet .223 Remington M76 semi-autos, the rifles are marked "Valmet - Made in Finland" and the U.S.A. importer was "Valmet, Inc., Elmsfod, New York". Valmet, Inc. of New York also imported a few of the PHT "Beer Keg" logo .223 Remington rifles, which had original...

Thank you, Tom, for your well-written words. Very, very thoughtful. I heard a Chicago liberal talk show host cut up President Reagan the day after he died. It made me sick! The entire topic was what government needs to do for us, not what we need to do for ourselves. I am totally convinced one of th...

8) You have a very nice Valmet M76 Folder! Your lucky to have such an excellent rifle, the original box, accessories, etc. Next time charge your friends $25 buck a picture and then maybe you will get a chance to shoot your rifle, too! Thanks for sharing your photos with us.

Chee-to:

Not many of the "beer keg" M76's made it to the USA. You're lucky to own one. I know of only four or five people that own them. Enjoy and welcome to the board!

It's a VKT Valmet Lahti L-35!

Some people have written to me asking about the picture of the pistol under my name (to the left). It is a VKT Valmet Lahti L-35, 9mm. Yes, VKT Valmet was involved in pre-WWII pistol manufacturing. Like the Valmet rifles, they have superb craftsmanship. This one is in mint, original condition and is...

:lol: That was great, Tom! I just wanted to tell you one thing. Keep you M78 away from my M76 .308's! I think one of them got together with your M78 at some secret meeting point and went to it. Indeed, dsisgusting and totally immoral. But, they had some fun. Now, my M76 .308 is also pregnant. Initia...

Hey, Chris! I'll take two if the museum has them on special or is selling them in their gift shop. I'll even buy some more of your Valmet port deflectors if you want to make it a package deal! What a fantastic looking firearm!
