Interchangeability of Valmet AK and other AK parts

Post by riderboy » Tue Jan 14, 2014 4:33 am

For the Valmet 7.62x39 AK do other AK parts like magazines, bolt carriers, bolts and firing pins interchange? Or did the Finns create an AK that will only use Finnish parts. If so, I think I'm Finnished! ; )

All the 7.62x39 AK mags and drums I've tried work in 7.62x39 Valmets. Some are tighter or looser, but they all seem to function OK. I think a most AK fire control parts and bolt carriers will work in 7.62x39 Valmets. Some may require some fitting. Bolts and firing pins, I'm not so sure about.
