78/83s on Gunbroker

Post by paget » Sun Oct 19, 2014 2:29 pm

Any ideas if the 78/83s listed on gunbroker 447507787 is a good deal?

I am always a little hesitant when sellers use "from a collector" language in their ads!!! :wink:
The issue that sticks out are the "non-factory" and unsightly, scope mount attachment bolts. :shock:

Was there a standard 78/83 mount? The gun is correct or have there been made up examples done?

The mount appears correct--- just not the mounting screws, and this is a "factory", ODIN conversion!!! :wink:
Check out the M78/83S section for pics. :D

Yes, those mounting screws are butt ugly. Anyone know anything about the Neil Smith M78 full auto conversion on Gunbroker in 7.62X39?
