    but srsly tho

    In the US, 7.62x39 Valmets are pretty rare, which is why they command a premium. I remember looking for one about five or six years ago and seeing them going for $3000-5000. Still one of my grail guns. And one of those guns that, like an SG551, I've felt that if that was the only rifle I had, I'd be happy.

    I saw one the other week at my LGS. Around $3500 I think.

    Arik,

    As you know... not all Valmets are equal in price but $3,500 for a 7.62x39 Valmet is amazing. The one in the photo I attached it the M62S, one of the very first ones USA got... period. The cheese grater hand-guard, milled receiver and bicycle handle grip are the giveaway signs for the M62. I would be interested in the one your LGS has if you are not. I mean there is always a chance that it's a hidden Gem!!!!

    I have no idea. After seeing the price the rest was irrelevant

    You have no idea where you saw the Valmet for $3500 or no idea on Valmets in general?

    No idea what model/version. I know it was a Valmet. It was next to a preban Galil!

    I saw both at my local LGS, a mile from home
