So, I've got an interest in looking at some of the pre-1989 AKs, as well as the pre-2000 counterparts. I've seen a registered Valmet at Angeles, and I'm sure that CG people must have a few more out there, too. So if you don't mind posting up some pics, I'm sure that there'd be a lot of people who'd love to see what they might be missing out on.

Thanks!

This is my pre-89 Hugarian SA-85M. I have replaced the stock, pistol grip, and front handguard, since the original blond stock was cracked. But I like the current Russian made stock better anyway. Sorry about the photo being a little bit dark.

I'm the one who pointed it out to him. :D It was nice. If only they weren't listed, otherwise there'd be one in my safe. :cool:

socom,

What AK are you referring to? I'd love to check it out sometime at Angeles.

"I'm the one who pointed it out to him. It was nice. If only they weren't listed, otherwise there'd be one in my safe."

Yep, Mach and I were out blastin' the steel plates with our neutered OL AKs when he told me that a guy was shooting with a Valmet a few stations away. Was cool to see one of the best AKs imported into the US up close.

Damn, did you guys at least get to shoot it?

Whats so special about Valmets anyways? I hear their good but i wonder why we all seem to get hard from them besides the fact that there are so few here. There arent a lot in the US correct? Maybe its another AK variant Im thinking of...

JPach,

I didn't get to shoot it; not sure if Mach did, either.

Most people will let you handle a firearm if you express interest in it. Some even let you shoot it, as you suggested. Could have been an off day, but the dude seemed pretty uninterested in gawkers.

"a rare sidefolding polytech in 7.62x39"

Nice, that would probably be well over two grand these days.

Thanks!

If you want, I'll bring my Romy G with Monster Man grip and then we'll see who's really living large.
