After proofreading my post i want to add a disclaimer stating that I'm not trying to be preachy here and I'm sure Mishaco knows more about rifles than i ever will, but my patriot blood demands me to voice some issues


RK-62:

Later versions of the rifle actually use a different name.

RK-95 TP, where TP means folding stock, you can't get the -62 with side-folding stock.
Another improvement with the -95 version is the ability to use different scopes or optics without too much hassle.
I haven't actually seen a -95 rifle on a regular serviceman, because that stuff is so good that we're not worthy of it.

Upgraded to Platinum, sent PM

Those SMGs are nice, they're pretty hard to come by in their country of origin, because MIL usually sells them to collectors and such to be deactivated, meaning that they're actually permanently "destroyed" as weapons and become more like a decorative piece.

Yeah you crazy Finns like your mag loops. Look at the Suomi's mags.


Its because "Those magazines there are expensive, recruit! We will stay here until every last one of them is found, now comb that forest!"

I would make Finnish army jokes here about it but they lose most of its charm in translation.. and they're not funny to people that haven't experienced it first hand.

I know the finnish RK isn't exactly hot stuff abroad, mostly because its basicly just an average RK with even cheaper looking furniture, but I love it for reasons I can't explain.

Last time I tried helping making sense of ours weird exotic variant of AK, I noticed that i couldn't really come up with good pictures, mostly because nobody really bothers taking photos of the guns when they're serving and those guns are pretty much nonexistent in civilian side.

I however recently found that Finnish Defense Forces still keep an online copy of "Sotilaan Käsikirja" (Soldier's Handbook) and an older "Rynnäkkökiväärin käsikirja" (Assault Rifle's Handbook) which I didn't even know existed.

Long story short, I took some pictures and heres some gun porn. I didn't remove the text because i thought it'd look more authentic that way.
The red squares are not censorship, they just denote that they're from the area of the handbook that was color coded with Red

Well, if you get your hands on RK92S or what ever the civilian semi-only model is called, do tell.

Actually it is pretty much impossible for me to get a working Suomi SMG or Lahti pistol.

Man that M78 stock just screams wrong at me. Tube-stock or bust!

For more content, I took a page from "Assault Rifle Manual" and saved it at a bigger resolution.

I'm not sure if anyone here has any use for a full exploded view of a 7.62 RK62 but i'll link it anyways:
Click for huge.

Ugggh I need to find complete and detailed schematics for this. When I get to 4th semester in gunsmithing school I'll be able to work more openly and have a wider range of project options. The tools available to me at the school would make something like this easy as gently caress to do...I may have to try my hand at it in a few semesters.

Well, Galil has pretty much the same gas system since its direct descendant from the RK. Internally they seem to be the same beast. Appearance wise theres not many shared parts.

When I saw the first picture I thought that you had found a weird M92S.

"Puukko" its just the finnish word for a knife. Bayonets are "pistin" which literally means a stinger.

RK-bayonets are ridiculously expensive here too, like 100 euros for a beaten up knife with no sheath

I would like to mention that I am not affiliated with the following store, I just listed all the stuff I found on that page that might be of interest and because the page is bit messy even in Finnish and the English version has zero product descriptions


Local military paraphernalia & airsoft store is selling 5 pieces of RK-62 magazines (black plastic waffle, with tabs) for 100€, 1 mag alone for 28€

They also have a brass catcher bag (20€, unsure if for Valmets, they claim it is), a rifle cleaning set (with FDF tower logos, 28€) and more of those green leather slings (10€)

Their email is info@swat.fi

Theres a couple Youtube reviews of that. The adjustment seems to scale back all the way from "Its now a straight-pull" to "Factory Default"
