I'm assuming you are looking a stamped receiver M76 not a milled one. Either way you would be better off starting with a wood stocked M76 if you want to use a Galil folder. The wood stock uses a bolt to attach it to the receiver and is fairly easy to remove and replace with an adapted Galil folder, ...

I think it also fits the M76 rear elevation adjustment screw as well as the night sight adjustment screw on the top cover. I have one that has a hole in the center that is threaded so you can use it as a handle with the threaded 7.62 cleaning rod section. I have seen at least two different styles of...

All the 7.62x39 AK mags and drums I've tried work in 7.62x39 Valmets. Some are tighter or looser, but they all seem to function OK. I think a most AK fire control parts and bolt carriers will work in 7.62x39 Valmets. Some may require some fitting. Bolts and firing pins, I'm not so sure about.

Valmet on Walking Dead

That's its 2nd appearance on The Walking Dead. It was also in the episode when the Woodbury folks attacked the prison. It looks like a 5.56 M76. Couldn't tell if it was a tube folder or a wood stock though.

Handguards can be swapped in a couple of minutes or less. Except for caliber (.223 vs .308) and markings, the receivers are the same. Really the only difference between the AR & ARM (and SAR for that matter) is the barrel and gas block differences.

The "S" indicates it was sold as a "Sporter" model by Action Arms. There were 323S, 392S and 329S models out there. possibly others also (710S, 332S, etc). The common theory is that the "big S" models were already in the country in customs when the 1989 "Bush assault weapons ban" executive order wen...

Stamped receiver .308 M78's use a different top cover than Milled .308 M78's. The stamped .308 M78 has a trunion that protrudes and is wider than the receiver like a true RPK, so it has a top cover that is "bulged at he front' to fit over the trunion protrusion in the receiver. Milled receiver .308 ...

Galil 329 is the 7.62x51 AR version with an 18" barrel, no bipod and synthetic handguard.

Galil 331 is the 7.62x51 AR version with a 20" barrel, bayonet lug, no bipod and synthetic handguar...

They are aftermarket M-14 (possibly ProMag or Korean) magazines modified for .308 Galils. I bought a couple just to try them and they worked well in my .308 Galil. I ran 100 rnds through 5 of them with no malfunctions. They are, however, not even close to the quality of real USGI M-14 magazines, but...

The Valmet M78 in .223 seems to be the odd duck of the Valmet world. They are pretty rare compared to the .308 M78's, and about equal in rarity to the 7.62x39 M78's, but they don't seem to be in demand like other Valmets. Possbily because of the scarcity/expense of the magazines or possibly because ...

The 323 is pretty much the same as the 332 except it has an shorter (18 inch) barrel and no bayonet lug. I think the 332 is actually rarer than the 323. Your assesment of the "S" marking status is right on. The S marked Galils were caught in the middle of the 1989 assault rifle ban and were marked w...
