And another Pro in my mind is that the import marks have not been milled off like a lot of the stamped .308 M78s that came in to the USA. The mill marks on the said partially sanitized rifles are always in the exact location of where the import marks are on your buddies rifle. I speculate that Odin ...

I would say $2500 buddy price to $3000 on Gunbroker

Pros: 5 mags

Cons: 1 mag looks rusty
Some Bubba cut the stock to fit what looks like a M14 butt plate

If you buy it and want a correct stock I can hook you up.

The biggest functional difference is that the longer locking lug for the milled gun won't clear the inside of the trunion of a stamped gun. I think a bolt for a stamped gun will work in a milled gun though. Milled M76 .308 bolts are the same as bolts for a milled M78.

Bolt carrier fitment

Will a .308 M76 bolt carrier work in a 7.62x39 M78?

Valmet .223 Mags

I have about a dozen real Valmet .223 mags for sale. They are all pop riveted in the spine to limit capacity to 5 rounds so they can be shipped anywhere. If your jurisdiction allows a higher capacity, a quick drilling of the aluminum pop rivet will free up the follower nicely. I am in Canada but shi...

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 ...

There are two styles of .223 firing pins. One is spring loaded like on the M76 and M78 rifles I have seen. The other is floating as found on the M71s I have seen. The complete bolts appear interchangeable between the said rifles. How long are they and how wide is the head on the rear of the pin? I c...

M71 style 30 rounder with single bump "rivet".
3 bump on the 15 rounder.
Both are in good used condition and have been pinned with a pop rivet to limit the capacity to five round as per Canadian law. :(
