I have fired the VAL assault rifle in 9x39... The way I understand it, the 9x39 was designed to just be a subsonic load, similar to US .300 whisper, etc... Large, heavy bullet.. Pretty much for suppressor use..


The VAL has about the same amount of recoil as an AKM. You can tell that you are sending a big bullet downrange..

In your opinion, was the accuracy any better with the 9x39 round or about the same as the 7.62? Both the Val and the Groza are neat pieces. Thanks, Craig

I am looking for a few rounds of ammo thats genuine but unless I am mistaken a good 358 bullet would work and you need to blow the 7.62 case out to make it fit ;) Craig

It has been a number of years now and I didn't take notes. I remember it as being mild, and there was a crack for sound, no bang or boom. But the rifle itself was really nice with a smooth trigger that almost seemed long until it would fire and you almost couldn't tell the sear had tripped. Pulled out my old target for 100m here. MOA was 6.35, the round I would say was nothing interesting for putting holes in paper. But I understand it is excellent for killing terrorists dead, or anyone wearing body armor. But I never got to shoot anything like that.
