Default What rifles use the 7.62x39?

I've had an AK and an SKS. Someone wanted them more than I did, so I made a little on them. I do like the round though as it's about equal to a .30-30. Anyone know of another rifle that shoots this caliber? Thanks.

Dave

AR variants too.

There have been a few single shot rifles I believe. Not sure though. I've heard someone made a bolt action too.

Really, the driving force behind that round is the AK and all is variants, and the SKS, with their popularity and distribution throughout the world.

CZ makes a bolt gun that shoots 7.62 x 39.

I have the SKS and have enjoyed the AKish WASR-10, but my next will be:

Ruger offers a compact bolt action in 7.62 Soviet. Barrel is 18" if not less. I have not shot it but suspect it kicks like the devil.

A rifle cannot have less than an 18" barrel without being classified and registered as an SBR.

PTR (H&K tooling) came out with a 7.62 x 39 that looks like one of their PTR91s, essentially equal to the H&K 92, but still with mfg cosmetic differences. It uses the H&K 91 .308 receiver.
Uses the AK mags, but mag well too long for a 72 rnd drum.
A defunct company called Special Weapons made a rifle with a fake suppressor extension to get from a 12" or 14" barrel to over 18" that was based on the H&K 93 .223 receiver. It had many feeding problems. SW later reopened as Cohair by Todd Bailey and his brother, I think.
what was nice about this weapon is that it was easily converted into an SBR by removing that faux extension.
What is nice about the H&K 91, 93 and 94 (MP5) is that it can use the registered sear amongst them - including the PTR mentioned above for select fire modes. The registered sear is the "machine gun" component and costly.
But that my friends is another story...
