Makes sense. I'm not a reloader but, I think, the .243 is nothing more than the .308 necked down a bit.

Another East Coast guy here. I think it's probably best not to generalize about how an individual's geographic residence impacts his ethics. I get to (have to?) travel a lot all over the U.S.A., and I've found no correlation between a man's location and his integrity. Well... except maybe a couple l...

Good point. You know... it never occurred to me that someone might hi-jack the photos you've worked to acquire (I've never administered a website), but I guess some folks might do that. Do what you need to do to protect your "intellectual" property. Thanks again for maintaining your site. It's a goo...

Like I said earlier... Interesting. Thanks for acquiring and posting the photos. Hey Steve... I don't mean to be critical, but here goes... The "ValmetWeaspons.com" identifier on top of the photos sort of detracts from them. Any way to put that in a corner so it didn't block the photos? Just a thoug...

To really be fair.... Many French citizens are very brave and patriotic, but they're too often constrained with poor leadership. Also, some weaponry developed by the French is first rate! I'm rather enamoured with the FAMAS. The one I have isn't select fire, but it's proven to be 100% reliable. If y...

For Sale - Valmet M78 Chambered in 7.62x39

I thought this may be of interest. The price seem a little high to me, but I don't see these change ownership very often. No, it's not my rifle; but I wouldn't mind having it. Here is the link. Hope this works....

It's my understanding that Brian has shifted his interest more toward machine guns. He has sold (or is selling) some of this other rifles (e.g., Valmets) to help finance machine gun purchases. The last price I saw on the particular rifle was $3,000. Not a bad price given the rifle's condition. I sus...

Interesting. I know I've never seen one. I wonder whether Valmet might have made some in "non-military" chamberings for nations (Italy maybe?) that prohibit ownership of rifles chambered in standard military cartridges. Just a thought.

I don't recall ever seeing any "AK" chambered in .222.

Beretta AR70's ??? Interesting. I think I've got a couple of those somewhere deep in the safe. As I recall.... they have very smooth actions. I've always wondered, some, why the prices of the Beretta rifles didn't appreciate as much as some of the other "pre-1989" imports. I guess it's all supply an...

Also... while I'm at it... might as well ask. Is there such a thing as a milled receiver M76 with a fixed tube stock chambered for 7.62x39?

I guess it would be very similar to a M62.

Just trying to get my arms around the variety of Valmets out there.

M76 Milled Receiver Folder in 7.62 x 39 ?

Anyone own, ever shot, or at least seen a M76 milled receiver folder chambered in 7.62x39 here in the USA? I've only seen pictures.

I'll try to remember to look back into some of my old magazines and look at my 386 to see if I can find anything specific. From what I remember (I'm I may be wrong), in the late 1980s or early 1990s, Springfield Armory partnered with IMI to bring some Galil rifles into the USA. I don't remember if a...

It seems that I recall hearing that it may be possible to "convert" a 20mm Lahti to use .50 BMG ammo which, of course, would be more readily available. In my opinion, however, that would be a shame. I know people have them and shoot them using 20mm ammo, but I have no idea where they get ammo and/or...
