Description: Valmet 71/S

Manufactured in Jyvaskyla, Finland. Similar to M-625 except in .223/5.56 mm caliber. Caliber .223, 17 -inch barrel, walnut stock, synthetic pistol grip and forearm, Parkerized. imported by Interarms, Alexandria, VA. Comes with two factory 30-round magazines and one factory 15 round magazine. Original Valmet single-rivet magazines are extremely hard to find, and quite expensive. ($250-$300). These three are in excellent condition. The Valmet 71s is a stamped receiver 5.56mm x 45mm semi auto rifle that was built for the U.S. civilian market; though some were also sold to France and other parts of Europe.  Built from 1971-1978 this rifle is functionally very similar to the Valmet 62 and later 76, but cosmetically there are many differences.

One of the goals Valmet had for designing this rifle was to attract part of the U.S. market that desired an AK-styled weapon that actually looked like an AK-47.  Valmet answered this call with the model 71.  Some of the changes using a more traditional AK style gas block.  Moving the sights forward like that of the AK47 and changing the handguard.  Also Valmet built these rifles to use the American 5/56x45 chambering that was readily available on the U.S. Market.  The previous Valmet Model 62 was chambered in 7.62x39 which at the time was very rare and expensive ammo to buy in the states. The 72s differs only that it has a plastic buttstock. The plastic was not very durable and is prone to cracking.

The serial number indicates that this rifle was the 678th manufactured between 1971 and 1972.

Condition is excellent. Parkerizing has very slight rubbing marks from extended storage. Mechanically excellent. Repaired chip on buttstock toe.

Buyer pays actual shipping.
