Nice work!

You matching receiver serial #'s to the parts kits?

For comparison, pics (click to enlarge) of original:
http://www.fulton-armory.com/ZastavaM76.htm

Suggestions for production run:
change bevel of "lightening cut" to match original more closely.

location of serial # inside starboard side lightening cut, per original.

Again, nice work!

Great News about the Lightening Cuts! I hope I have one with the proper lightening cuts?

I ordered early last week, how can I make sure mine is one of the receivers of the second batch?

keep up the great work!

Thanks Todd, Krink. I hadn't caught that other post.
I'm thrilled that youse guys are stepping up the the plate AND doing it right. Kudos.

I'm sitting on (at this point) an old Bulgie milled type AK folder stock; I'll probably get an SA-93 parts kit and swap out for the bakelite handguards and grip that they put on some Bulgie AKS-47's. Are you guys still planning to do a milled AK-47 receiver, and an underfold variant of same?

Todd,

These are slick.

This may be a stupid question due to import laws, but any chance you folks will ever be working on a Dragunov style 7.62x54mm rifle (I saw the note on the M77, but I'm referring to an honest to goodness SVD-style rifle).

Thanks.

Thanks.

Is anyone offering an SVD Parts Kit?

Also, when DPMS was planning to make them, they were threaten with a lawsuit from the russians. For what reason, I don't know. The gun is no longer patentable (to old), but that's what I was told.

Who sells parst kits and how much for M-76 in 8mm?
Link Posted: 9/7/2004 6:35:00 AM EST
Southern Ohio Guns have kits for $595. They are called the "Zastava Kits" The last time I checked, they had 60 kits left. Pay the extra $10 for handpicked. I got a matching numbered kit.

Hey some guy on the AK forum came up with a way cool idea. He's starting a registry to help marry up the with Mis-match M76 parts. M76 parts registry

I know I'm going to try, neither my bayonet or scope mount matches.

Krink-

Any new pictures? What's the latest word for the first production pieces?

Thanks Todd@ORF


Hot.
Stoner beat me to it.

I got to fondle one the other day at the store. Very nice feeling rifle. As a fan of the commie long guns, you wouldn't go wrong. Felt better than I figured it would. Good scope height. I think it would be a hoot and half to shoot/own. An SVD now that would be an interesting proposition. First in line!

I think we would need some actual SVD parts, unfortunately.

Can the M76 shoot heavy grain bullets. Such as 198grain?

Is there still one at the store i can look at?

Does the price 1799.95 include tax?

Do i have to pay in full or half to reserve one?

Thanks.
Link Posted: 9/20/2004 7:52:47 PM EST
They had one at the store when I was there. I was more impressed than I had expected. Good feel, good cheek weld. If you buy it at the store, you'll have to pay sales tax. If ordering to a FFL will get you out of the tax, I'd go that route, even if you live across the street. A friend of mine drove over there from Indiana and bought a Galil. D'OH. Had to pay 7% tax on a $1300 gun. That added up, especially after gas. Email, I'm sure they'll get right back to you.

Its my distinct honor to donate my rifle for a while, if it'll get more SVDs out there for the US public. LEAST I can do. I was dropping hints all over the place, glad Todd finally came out with the offical word.
Link Posted: 9/22/2004 2:08:06 PM EST
I called ORF today.

ORF said i have to pay the 7% tax even if i have the gun sent to a FFL because i live in Ohio. Is this right? Just want to make sure. I am sending a money order with the FFL copy does the money order make a difference with taxed/not taxed? I bought the SEAK this way with no tax.

Sorry if i sound Stupid. Trying to save money so i can buy a Galil next time.

Also they dont know if shooting heavy grain will hurt the gun such as 198grain. I cant find any info on the net. Anyone Know?

Sorry again if i sound Stupid.

Thanks.
Link Posted: 9/22/2004 3:43:04 PM EST
Yes, if you live in OH, and you buy a gun from RH, you must pay state sales tax.

take care,
Tec

Guys,
You want a CA Zastava? Take off FH, bayo lug, would be CA legal right? 10rd only gun. LMK can be done

Todd



Nah , It still has a pistol grip and CA DOJ might say its of the "AK series" which is not even valid anymore but they act like it is....

Feature part of CA aw goes like this :
the definition of "assault weapon" also includes any of the following: (1) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following: (A) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon. (B) A thumbhole stock. (C) A folding or telescoping stock. (D) A grenade launcher or flare launcher. (E) A flash suppressor. (F) A forward pistol grip. (2) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds. (3) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.

Also I was thinking that you could sell Hk clones here if you made the magazine detach with a tool (bullet tip) since that counts as a permanently attached mag.. they could have all the goodies then also..

Guys,
Shipped out darn near all 76 receiver orders today. Builds that were sent should be done in a week or so. Customer purchased guns, same.

Thanks Todd

I'm sending a letter of to our DOJ soon to clarify our law for us.. I'll im you the info as soon as I get it because they may claim it is of the "AK series" where as a dragunov would be hard pressed to fit into that category..

Thanks alot! for considering it for us CA guys.. alot of people don't even bother
