I noticed that. It happened so quickly that my Gun Nut spouse missed it all together.

M71 trunion and receiver are narrower than the M76 and M78. If you are building on a M78 receiver you must use the original M78 trunions. I think M76 trunions will work in a M78 but that is besides the point.

M71 barrels should screw right on to a M78 trunion. You will need the M71 gas tube, gas block, as well as the gas piston and the hand guard retainers/nut to make it function as those parts are different for sure. I think the stocks are interchangeable. Your bolt carrier, and trigger group from the M...

"Are M76 (stamped) barrels also threaded into the trunnion?"
Yes. I think all the Valmet AKs have threaded barrels.

I think it may fit.
Keep in mind that STAMPED 308 Valmets have a wider front trunion that will interfere with top covers without the relief cut so say if both rifles are .223 you are good to go without taking the sights into consideration.

Different bolts. They are hard to find and there is at least one member here that needs one to complete his 78.

71 barrel

I had a smith pull a 71 barrel and he buggered the trunion in the process. Not sure how he did it though. A good smith would have been better.

Questions about Valmet parts import to USA from Canada

I live in Canada and am comming into some parts I would like to sell/trade on this board. (2) M71 and (1) M76 barrels in .223, M76 barrel in .308, trunions and stocks.

Do you guys know if I can ship to a buyer in the US without US import permits?

The front sight is moved forward on the 71. The gas block on the 71 has no provision for a front sight. Flash hider on the 71 is one with the front sight housing. Floating firing pin on the 71. Not sure about the 76, but the 78s' firing pin is spring loaded. The 2 bolts looked interchangable. The ha...

M78 hand guards are identical. Sarco has some wood ones.

You will probably have to get creative.
