    Have had my sks for two years and love it and have a lot of 7.62x39 ammo around looking for a bolt action rifle that can be used as a varmint gun...anyone have or heard of one? Pics?

    CZ makes a nice little carbine. I believe Savage has a rifle in the 7.62 chamber.

    The Chinese converted Type 38 Arisakas into the 7.62x39 caliber

    The remington 700 probably has a model in that caliber. They are excellent guns if you dont mind spending a little money

    True enough. My bad. Where I live 'varmints' are ground hogs and a few coyotes.

    I have a CZ 527 Carbine - great little gun, comes with scope rings somewhat like Rugers, has a wonderful set trigger - very accurate little rifle. I put a Burris Timberline compact scope on it 2.5 to 7 - works great. Ruger used to make a rifle in this - a little hard to find and pricey when you do. Remmington had this in the 799 model they imported for a few years. I have a 799 in a .22Hornet nice looking rifle, but have not had the time to sight it in yet. I have a few sks's and a mac-90 but I much prefer to shoot the little CZ.

    Remington makes a model 798 that is available. It's practically a Mauser made for Remington by zystava I believe. My LGS has one in 223. It's real sharp and smooth feeling. It was my second choice after the marlin I decided on. I may go back for her.....

    I don't think the 798 long action was ever chambered in 7.62X39. The short action 799 "mini mauser" was though.

    I guess that's what I meant. I knew one was short action and the other long action.

    Remington discontinued importing the M798 and M799 in 2008. these were nice rifles and a shame they quit importing them. they were made by Zastava for Remington and were very closely made just like a Mauser action.
