Mint M78 7.62x39 on GB.

Rare gun, kinda absurd that for $6700 it doesn’t come with any mags and he wants an additional $200 for shipping...

Like most 7.62x39 Valmets, they don’t change hands that often so it’s hard to say really. A gun like this, $5-6k...his price isn’t insane for someone who really wants one, but $200 shipping and no mags?!

The last one that showed up like this one went for exactly 6K about 2 years ago and Benjamin Specialties gobbled it up.

They listed a stamped, fixed-tube 76 7.62x39 a few weeks back. No takers at $8100.

And there’s currently a wood-stock milled 76 7.62x39 in kinda rough shape listed at $8k

I wish I kept my Valmet 7.62's

I had a number of 7.62x39mm Valmets. Several 62's and a 76 fixed. Still have one Val 76 tube folder in 5.56mm
