    Thank You. Sent an e-mail earlier. Have a few more questions after reading posts regarding stock fit in folded position, head spacing, and mag feed.

    O/T Saw a used Valmet in a gunshop this afternoon, it looked decent except for the butt stock, totally did not match up with the forearm, in fact I wonder if it was a replacement for an original folder to convert to fixed. It was priced at $995.

    Valmets did not have matching furniture per say. Buttstocks on some were wood with plastic hand gaurds. The price you quoted is a steal on any Valmet model. Even more of one if it's not a 71 series.

    I looked it over pretty close, saw no markings referring to 71 series. How would I discern this?

    The M71's have a rear sight like an AKM, while the M62/S and te M76 series have the rear sight on the back of the dust cover.

    Thank you, the one I looked at then is not a 71.

    Obviously I know nothing about Valmets. I was shooting skeet and talking AK's, and Galil's, a guy says he saw a great Galil at a certain gun shop. After shooting for the day I stopped in at that shop and it was the aforementioned Valmet.
    I liked it except the buttstock, looked like a POS. It was a veeeery shinny black plastic/poly of some type. The forearm furniture was black poly in a finish resembling parkerized.

    J & G has Galils for $699

    Supposedly J & G has Galils on sale for $699.

    I would buy one of those.

    I would call J & G and verify that it had a bayonet lug if that is important to you.

    Here is a link that mentions this price from a J & G flyer:

    Those buttstocks were notorious for cracking, I'd be suprised if there weren't cracks in it already, as that rifle is easily over 20 years old.

    That handguard is standard on the M76's, and is one of the best out there.

    It's probably a 76 in .308, with 6 mags! :shock: Wouldn't I like to stumble into that for under a grand.

    It is definitely .223 I wanted a .223 in an AK conformation to shoot alongside my AR.
    I had intended to go buy that Valmet tomorrow but since reading Templars post, hmmmm, I don't know. I could re-stock it, but 20 years of shooting, well ya know what I mean. However the finish looked NIB.

    I think I will check out the J & G Galils that Oswald posted about.

    Thank you all for your informative input.
