Valmet Petra hunting rifle...

Post by bulm5 » Fri Jun 15, 2018 12:25 pm

Hello all,

Here is my Valmet Petra .308 purchased in Germany, the rifle is very good and hard hitting on hogs...
I replaced the wood stock with an ATI foldable stock and swapped the handguard with an UTG quad rail for flashlight and bipod, not very pretty but functional and scratch-free in the dense woods where I hunt, I keep the wood parts in reserve in the eventuality that I need to sell the rifle. I hunt with or without a red dot Redfield counterstrike scope, usually without, as the rifle is heavy enough as it is, and the rifle is precise enough with iron sights...next step is to find a proper suppressor to hunt quietly, I do not want to thread the barrel so currently testing out various barrel attachments. Would love to find a night scope for it too...(planning to purchase the ATN X sight II). only good things to say about the Valmet Petra, very well designed and finished, sturdy, practical, efficient, precise...love that rifle. I have a 5, 10 and two 20 rnds mags for it (one is a HK G3 modified mag apparently), only problem is the dovetail rail, not the best option, could fit a side mount I saw on internet, but it will add weight and I do not want to drill the rifle.
