Has anyone figured out why some Valmets are in the 382XXX range?

I presume that you are referring to late-production M62's (382XXX and 383XXX)!!! :wink:
Suppose that those were the serial number ranges available: :D

M62 (382XXX and 383XXX)
M76 (395XXX, 396XXX, 397XXX, 398XXX, and 399XXX)
M78 (385XXX, 388XXX, 390XXX, 395XXX, and 396XXX)
M83 PETRA/M88 (359XXX, 382XXX, 386XXX, 391XXX, 392XXX, 393XXX, 394XXX, 396XXX, 397XXX, and 399XXX)
RK83S (402XXX).

Yes Tony....just wondering why the large gap in the serial number range. Was this an indicator / code for Valmet to indicated a rifle made for a different market / surplus parts / et al.....

Mike,

I am not certain--- I can only speculate that other models (with their respective serial number ranges) cause the discrepancies!!! :D
