More Information *


Rk 62 (Finnish: Rynnäkkökivääri 62 or M 62, Assault rifle 62) is a assault rifle manufactured by Valmet and Sako. It is used by the Finnish military. This reliable infantry weapon was designed in 1962 and is based on the Soviet AK-47 design. The Rk 62 uses 7.62x39 mm ammunition. Between 1965-1995 there were 200,000 M62 rifles produced by Valmet and Sako factories.

The first version called the Rk 60 was produced in 1960 and was internally almost a copy of the AK-47. It featured a metallic buttstock, a plastic handguard and pistol grip. After testing by the military, it was slightly modified and adopted as the Rk 62. The Rk 62 is considered a very high quality AK-47 clone.This is apparent especially in its accuracy, as it can frequently achieve less than one minute of arc. The rifle uses a "peep" diopter sight, which is flipped over to reveal the open tritium enhanced rear night sight. The forward sight has also a mode for night operation.

Different versions of the weapon include the Rk 76, which is a version with a stamped steel receiver that reduces the weight to 3.5 kg. The latest version is called Rk 95 TP, which is able to fire rifle grenades, can be fitted with a suppressor, scope and bayonet and it has a folding stock. It is currently used by the Finnish Army in small numbers. As Sako had bought Valmet's small arms manufacturing division, Rk 95 was manufactured only by Sako.
