Gifts from Finland: Sourced a Valmet 5.56 Magazine

The M76 5.56 AK made by Valmet came with only a 15 round magazine. The 30’s are hard as hell to find.

But thanks to a friend, we sourced a 40.

You can’t tell by my sedate mood on the video, but inside I feel like doing the PeeWee Herman dance!

    Awesome! I hope it didn’t set you back too much on cost. I wasn’t even aware of 40 round versions

    • It appears the 40’s and some 30’s were converted by a company specifically for this purpose. Looks like a HK G33 mag. Which is a 40. So that makes sense.

        Ten plus years ago, I got a hold of some Chinese 5.56 AK mags and was successful at smithing those to work. Didn’t fit as well, and wouldn’t stake my life on them, but functioned well enough. They are hard to find and over priced as well now.

        • One of the issues I am discovering is these MCP’s don’t rock-in to my liking.

          I’m sure they work well enough for the weekend plinkers, but running drills for service use, the one I have blows.
