WTB: Valmet / Sako M62 / Rk62 / M76 Handguard FOUND

Location: Finland

9 posts in this topic

UPDATE: SARCO Finally replied, and they're out. Thankfully I got in contact with some friendly 'mrican who sold me his spare! Praise the lord! :D

a moderator can close this, if need be. I've found what I was lookin' for, all thanks to this forum :)

I'll be lurkin' in the shadows though, ready to outbid you guys on any Rk62 goodies getting sold in here!

 

Greetings from the land of Valmet!

I come to you fine people in need of a very specific part, that I'm having a hard time finding. Now hear, this part isn't some ultra-rare world war era relic, so if you have one, I'm expecting fair price negotiation, not getting ripped off :D

Reference pictures:

I'm new around this forum, so if I left any required part out, I'd be more than happy to fix it :)

 

Best regards, and happy holidays,

-Kristian

Are Valmet parts hard to find in Finland ?

Ultra-Rare World War Era Relics .....  may be easier to find than Valmet handguards .... 

Valmet parts surface on Gunbroker        https://www.gunbroker.com/

My god... your signature is enormous! :D

Well, wouldn't say hard. Depends on what you need for it. I was able to buy almost everything else, from signs, stock, muzzleflash suppressor and so on from a single web-shop. Only thing missing is the m62/m76/rk62 handguard. I was offered one of the older rk62 model front guards for 60€, but I'm looking for the newer "M76" model one.

US Sellers are asking bizarre amounts of money for these things, as I browse gunbroker! A used Valmet leather strap almost 30 USD? Are these some sort of holy relics to US Residents? :D

I tried emailing Sarcoinc (US Based company) about this: http://www.e-sarcoinc.com/valmetm76handgaurd.aspx with no success. No reply, nada. The asking price is a big high, but I'm willing to negotiate about it with them. Or any of you fine people, should you be in posession of this type of handguard :)

the last Valmet M76 handguards I saw on Gunbroker ..... [ the exact same ones you posted from my Valmet Photo Album ]

http://www.sturmgewehr.com/bhinton/Valmet/Valmet_M76Handguards.jpg

were sold 6 years ago for $250

if Sarco has them for Only $100 ...... that's a Bargain ...... you better buy them .

Well, I'm trying, but they seem unresponsive, and I wouldn't want to call as I live so, so far away. I tried their international and sales Emails, and Facebook. Any idea how to reach 'em?

You guys are nuts :D

I'll try reaching out to them again after the new year fuzz has calmed down! Thanks!

 

EDIT: I'm not even able to create an account to Sarco properly. There's no option to change my country from United States to Finland. I guess they're not very big on international sales.. hm.. Guess I'm forced to wait for them to reply to the Emails I sent.
