M-76 Folder In 7.62 x 39.

Post by Tallin » Mon May 16, 2011 8:24 pm

Did Valmet make the M-76 Folder in 7.62 x 39?

If they were made, doe's anyone here have one?

Is this a trick question?
Yes they did indeed, but I don't have one. I think several people here on the board have them. They came in either the milled tube folder or stamped tube folder varieties. I would consider either to be "The Grail" for a Valmet collection.
Buddy H. has a stamped one.

Yes.

I've read here that there aren't too many milled ones in the U.S. Unsure of the number, I took mine out on Saturday for a little bonding.

Well, probably the only thing missing from my Valmet collection that I would really like to have!

Anyone here have one for sale or know where I can get one?

:D :D :D :D :D :D

Thanks!

I don't think there were very many imported into the USA, but I see them for sale now and then. It seems to me, too, that I see more of the folders trading hands than I do the fixed tube stock versions. I think the milled folders are the rarest of all.

To my knowledge only about 20-40 of the milled folders came into the US and I believe they were all imported by Valmet Inc in the late 80s. Extremely rare and expensive when found!

My understanding was @ 50 milled and @ 50 stamped, with one-third (1/3) being folders!!! :shock:

Price check:

What would be a reasonable price for the original Valmet m62 folding stock. I am considering to sell it... :wink:

Don't know as you're in Finland but prob a few hundred $ here in the US as no 62s were imported as factory folders.

M76 Tube folder in 7.62x39

Post by valmetcollector » Mon May 23, 2011 9:41 am

Yes they are hard to find. Missed out on a Milled Folder a couple of years ago and then low and behold a Stamped folder came up for sale here in NE Ohio.

Yes I am giving it a good home, along with my other M76's .223 and M78 in .308.

Good luck with the hunt. Either Milled or Stamped are hard to find.

If I recall, it's kosher to buy parts from over seas as long as the declared value is not over $100, otherwise there would be an excise on it, and that would be determined by Customs based on what the shipping statement is.
And, it's pretty problematic to ship gun parts from Finland the last year or so.
