I import directly from Finland. I am selling:

Scarce Valmet M62 "green waffle" (polymer) 30 round 7.62 x 39 magazines! Used, but in nice hand-picked condition! (Some have scratched floorplates and most have shiny rear lugs, indicating that they have been used.) These will also fit in AK-47s and clones. 40 available in this batch! My last batch of 35 waffle magazines sold out in just one week, so don't hesitate! (#ZZ-462) $38 each, or $35 each of you buy 3 or more, or just $32 each of you buy 10 or more.

Valmet M62 30 round, rectangluar "lanyard loop" 7.62 x 39 magazine, steel, 80% original finish. (Finish is worn mainly on the high points such as the reinforcing ribs, sides of floorplate, and the top portion that contacts the magazine well.) Only ONE left! (#UP-062) $40

Valmet M78 .308 20 round brightly blued steel original Valmet-made magazines with nickel plated followers. Note: This type of magazine fits BOTH Valmet M78 .308s with stamped AND milled receivers.

Two of them are in like new condition: (No signs of use, and just a hint of shipment wear.) $225 each postage paid. Four are in excellent condition (These show very minor bullet tip marks and evidence that they've been in a rifle, but otherwise nearly new!) $220 each postage paid or $190 each if you buy all four. JPEG photos available upon request. The last one is in more used condition (90% finish and has more pronounced bullet tip dents and one small dent in the side that does not impede follower travel.)

Payment Terms and Ordering Instructions:

Except for coin or bullion orders, all prices quoted INCLUDE postage and Delivery Confirmation tracking to the lower 48 States, assuming that each order is $50 or more. (If less than $50, I will provide a postage quotation.) Overseas orders: Query for a postage cost quotation.

I take payment via USPS money orders (payable to Jim Rawles), or even greenback cash on small orders. (NO checks!) I also accept pre-1965 mint date U.S. silver coinage (dimes, quarters, or half dollars) at the very advantageous rate of 5 times face value, or 6 times face value for silver dollars! (To pay in silver coinage, take the total for your order, and divide by 5. Hence, if your order totals $50, you would mail me just $10 face value in silver coins dated 1964 or earlier.) If sending cash, be sure to wrap it in paper so that it cannot be seen through the envelope. If sending silver coinage, be sure to mail it in a sturdy, rattle-free box, INSURED! Send cash at your own risk.

PayPal payments are accepted--reluctantly. I don't like using this service because they adopted anti-firearms policies after they were acquired by the ultra-liberal EBay company. Add 3.5% to your total if paying via PayPal.

If paying via USPS money order or cash, use this address:

James Wesley, Rawles
c/o 3983 So. McCarran Blvd. #200
Reno, Nevada 89502 USA

PLEASE e-mail me to confirm and hold stock before sending funds!

All items are first come, first served.

Best Regards,

James Wesley, Rawles <><
