That sounds like a really neat rifle, but I already have a M7 Remington in .308 Winchester that I think is superior as a sporting rifle at least for the caliber even if it's not controlled round feeding. I'm not sure what the 7.62x39 would do that I can't get done with my .308, but it sounds fun to play with. I have a couple of SKSs I shoot occasionally. Surplus ammo is cheaper, though I handload for all my bolt guns. I've often thought the 7.62x39 could be a VERY accurate round in a decent bolt gun. The SKSs ain't exactly tack drivers, LOL!fords4life said:Remington is making a bolt gun in 7.62x39 it is model 799 which is a modified mauser action. I am getting ready to order one for myself as soon as my reenlistment bonus hits the bank.
Oh yeah! And how about adding a good bull barrel with 1/4" MOA accuracy? Sign me up!texastaurusguy said:I think a 308 that used an AR-10 magazine would be terrific. That way, you could modify it or tacticool it in many different ways, and you wouldn't be limited on mag capacity.
