    This is a naive question, but what other firearms chamber the 7.62x39? I know the SKS and the Ruger Mini-30 do, but are there any other firearms?

    I'm asking simply because of the low cost of 7.62x39's.

  3. Nagants are 7.62x54.

    Ruger makes an M77 special edition in 7.62x39.

    And if you try to shoot 7.62x39 in a Nagant, lemme know so i can duck :)

    There are a few AR-15s chambered in 7.62x39mm, as well as a few Mausers, in addition to the above (except the Nagant... I agree with Bryan.)
    Also, recognize all the rifles which are derived from the AK... Saiga, VEPR, Valmet, etc.
    Oh yeah, and the Rashid, a derivative of the Swedish Ljundman, and the Czeck 52, adapted from their own 7.62x45mm.
    There's another Czeck select fire rifle designed similar to an AK, but no complete rifles are here, at least in civilian form.

    Don't forget the CZ 550 bolt action rifle, too.....
