If you have a rifle chambered for the little 7.62 short Russian round that isn't a semiautomatic (or full auto for that matter):evil: I would love to see it. So please post some pics of those manually operated 7.62x39's!

Huh. I can honestly say thats the first time I have ever seen a picture of a bolt action 7.62x39 rifle... and I think I like it! I knew such a thing existed, but I just don't think I have ever seen a picture or heard of anyone owning one.

How do they shoot? How much are they? How hard are they to find?

7.62x39 non semi's and non full auto huh?

Should be a short list, is there a production model that isn't made by CZ?

I guess those Yugos with the gas shut-off would qualify. Or maybe a WASR with some FTE issues:evil:.

There was a joint converting Enfields to 7.62x39, and using those single-stack WASR-10 mags. Never saw one in person, but I think it's a neat idea.

The rifle on the top is a stainless steel Ruger M77. Davidson's
sold several special runs of them over the years with slightly
different barrel profiles. This had the heavier of the barrels
produced as of that time which had all been made of stainless.
But the last Ruger production model that I saw on a gun shop
rack was blued, and that couldn't have been more than a few
years ago.

The rifle on the bottom was built by Century Arms with a small
ring Mauser action and a stepped Wilson barrel.

Another production sporter model that I once shouldered in
a gunshop was the Mini Mark X made by Zastavia Arms in
Yugoslavia and imported by Interarms from around 1990-94.
It's listed as having a miniature M98 Mauser System action,
20 inch barrel with open sights, checkered hardwood stock,
5 shot mag., and adjustable trigger.

Sorry but no no they do not. You can turn ANY sks into a straight pull rifle simply by removing the gas piston. But in the eyes of the ATF it's still a semiautomatic.


Great pics arcticap your Mauser doesn't happen to have "deluxe custom sporter" stamped on the barrel?

This rifle went from the Interarms Mini Mark X, then became known as the Charles Daly Mini Mauser, and is now known as the Remington 799.

Thanks, but yours are even better...I left my camera setting on the macro setting! :D
No, mine is not stamped deluxe, but I believe that I've seen a picture of what looked like a nicer Century model.
But this does have a nice cheekpiece.
This one was fairly inexpensive and the scope mount is quite high, but it does shoot pretty good for having such an old action with a slower lock time.
Neither of mine have open sights though.
I recall seeing a bunch of these on the floor rack of a gunshop, and many of them had bad triggers or noticiable workmanship flaws. So I didn't buy one until a few years ago when I found this one used. It functions perfectly and shoots great. A friend bought one that shoots great too. Another guy said that his Century shoots cast bullets better than the Ruger does.

WHAT! :what: We all know that is was originally a straight pull bolt action they added the gas system to it later...Excluding the Yugo is shameless bolt snobbery! :evil:
