Hey Rud--- or Chris' RK92 build--- all factory parts, except receiver!!! :wink:Ruddiger said:Depends upon your definition. A lefty stamped folder in 7.62x39 is very rare and desirable. However, one could argue that a milled, righty folder in the same caliber is even more sought after. By contrast, there were only ~2,000 M82s produced with only a fraction imported to the U.S., yet the bullpup garners much less attention. Actually, an M82 in 7.62x39 is most likely the rarest of all Valmets, unless there's a post-sample rk.93 TP floating around somewhere.
I was presuming that the OP was referring to U.S. items--- love to have an RK93!!! :wink:Ruddiger said:Chambered in 5.56, the RK.93 was the transferable export version of the Sako M92S/RK.95. Theoretically, it could have found its way here to become the "holiest of holies" (as far as Valmets go).
But you already knew that, Tony! And there's also the rare M78/83s if you count conversions.
