I'm glad to see forum members grabbing these rifles when they become available. Sort of like keeping them in the family.

I agree, also when you get another Valmet - it is like re-uniting long lost family members.

Well, I got my Valmet M62 today and she is a beauty. The guy I bought it off of - bought the M62 when he came back fron Viet Nam in the early 70's. He paid $375.00 for it - brand new in the box! Well, he never fired it all those years - it just sat in the safe until I just got it today. It is obviously unfired - still has original grease inside from the Valmet factory - although the grease has dryed up somewhat. It is a Tube Stock, Cheesgrater Forearm, and the Round Ribbed Pistol Grip. Came with one original steel 30 round magazine with lanyard loop. Also, sling and cleaning rod. He said he thru out the box and manual years ago - it would have been nice to get the manual also. Of course matching numbers on receiver and rear sight. Some of the holes on the Cheesegrater forearm are still filled with the black plastic material of the forearm. Barrel is absolutely Mint! I am Very Excited to have been able to get this Valmet in the condition it is in. I would be happy to answer any questions anyone has. But, my question to you is: Would you guys shoot this one in the state it is in??? Thanks, Mike :lol:

If if was mine, I'd give it a good cleaning (get rid of all the old grease), fire about 20 rounds through it just to make sure all was good, clean it thoroughly, put on some protective oil, and put it away. Then I'd go out and buy a second M62 (later model with newer grip) and shoot the hell out of the second one.

That's what I did a few years ago. Now I have a like new M62 and a somewhat less than like new M62 that's a blast to shoot.

Then again... you could buy two more M62s and put two into storage. That might be the best plan of all!

Post by Samppa V » Sat Nov 17, 2007 8:23 am

Guns are for shooting!
I never let any gun of mine go without shooting them regularly!
I've got some unique collector items, that I've ruined to early death, just for the fun of it, also to check out the myths about certain guns, like the "absolute reliability tested in field" with guns like AK's, M16's and SIG 55x-series. Some are true, some are not.
Most fun I've had with one rifle, was a Saiga MK-103 in 7,62*39, I fired everytime it to hellfire-red hot and then tossed it to waterditch or in winter to snow or ice water. It got the worst handling ever and it triumphed it!
No troubles at all, some people have said that pressed metal AK's are easy to broke, I've somewhat different opinion on that :D

I do already have a M62 Wood Stock, Cheesgrater Forearm with Black Pistol Grip that I do shoot. They are an awesome weapon! It is very tempting to take out the new one for a test run. I did clean the new one last night - I don't think the guy ever cleaned it - it was dirty and dusty. Cleaned out the original grease, took a while to do, but man did she clean up nicely. Looks awesome! Mike

Took a couple of pictures of the M62 Tube I recently aquired. What is the easiest way to post them here, I've never done it. Thanks, Mike
