I am considering the sale of my Nickle Plated Valmet Model 76. This gun was originally purchased at J & G Sales in Prescot by my father in 1990 (production date of 12-03-1986). Very Rare as it is the only Valmet known to be Nickle Plated and thought to be a Finland Coast Guard issue for Parades. This gun is in excellent condition and had probably been fired less than a couple hundred rounds. Gun comes with original box, all paperwork and manual, cleaning kit and one Nickle Plated clip (10 round I believe).

Not 100% sure on value but I have put this gun up for sale on Back Page and am looking at all offers over $2,500. I wanted your members to know about this gun as it really needs a good home with a collector and someone that has a safe place to store it. I would be happy to talk with any serious buyers... just email me a contact number.

I believe this "PHT" marked rifle was made as a parade rifle. It had no front sight when first bought. I am guessing here, that is was made as a sample for the Indonesian Coast Guard or just an extra. The original owner bought it from J&G new in the early 90's.

Those were made for parade use but not for Finland.

Sorry guys. I mixed that version with our 60 years Sako celebration RK62 rifle made in 1986.
As you may see it has milled receiver and original boxing was in wooden case made of birch of Lapland.

Figured if we are going to be talking about silver colored Valmets we need to have Buddy's parade picture to look at. This is borrowed from buddy Hinton's Picture page all photo credits go to him.

I seem to remember, too, that Qatar acquired "chromed" Valmets similar to the M71 pattern that were used for parades, honor guard ceremonies, etc.
