Rifles vary, but I've pretty consistently witnessed more consisten accuracy with my M62 using a variety of 7.2x39 ammo. One of my M76's comes close using the same ammo, but a different M76 I have doesn't shoot any of it well except for old mil surp Yugo (M67) ammo. If I had to choose between the two...

It may be that the M62 is an older design incorporating a milled steel receiver into it's design rather than the stamped steel used for M76 rifles. The M62 is correspondingly heavier, but it is arguably more robust. I would suggest your getting an example of each and checking both out for yourself. ...

:shock: Interesting. I only have about 900 rounds of the Yugo remaining in my stash. I think I'll suspend firing it in my Valmets and use in in an old SKS instead.

Valmet M76 - First "Stovepipe" Jam Ever

I had a tough day at work yesterday, so I went home early and thought I'd blow away a little ammo to relax. I pulled out my trusty M76 and a hundred rounds of Yugo M67 and started blasting away. For the first time ever, I experienced a classic "stovepipe" type jam. I stopped shooting and examined th...

Fiskars or Hackman ?

Are there any design or functional differences between Valmet bayonets manufactured by Fiskars and Hackman (steels? grinds? etc.)? Is either considered better than the other?

I click on the bookmark I made for Brian's site every day hoping it'll eventually return. I guess it may be gone for good this time. I like the idea of Valmet enthusiasts pooling their resources together to create a single site that combines all of the best of the accumulated information that's out ...
