The M76 is a modified AK-47/74 that has been accurized with a longer and heavier barrel and a modified stock that is more comfortable and ergonomical. The M76 has also been chambered in 7.92×57 Mauser, a much better long range caliber then either the 7.62x39mm or 5.45x39mm calibers of the rifles its derived from. The M76 Teloscopic sight is essentially a Russian PSO-1 with active IR illumination detection ability and a lighted reticule. Its calibrated with a BDC out to 1200 meters, but that is fairly optimistic for the performance of the rifle. The rifle also comes with a 5x80mm passive night vision scope, which appears to be about the equivalent of a gen II night vision device. (Good to about 500 meters on a bright moon, clear night).
The rifle is comfortable to shoot and the 7.92 Mauser offers pretty good ballistics, with 800 meters being an achievable range for the average sniper, and 1000 meters for the expert. The recoil is light, but there can be a heat problem with successive rapid fire shots. Overall, the rifle is a solid “field” sniper system with about 1.5 – 2.0 MOA and is very functional, as proven in Bosnia and Kosovo.
i would like to know the cost of the m-76 in the 3006
We are not aware of any of them available in .30-06
There was similar but not sniper M77 in 308
This is my M76 in 30-06
I have a 30-06 too. Anyone know anything about it?
Assault Weapons of Ohio makes an M76 in 30-06
Pretty interesting model right there. Love AK aesthetic and looks like it packs a punch.
Is it possible to rebarrel an AK-47 https://gritrsports.com/shooting/firearms/rifles/ak-47-rifles/ by K-USA at an experienced gunsmith to achieve something like this? Have one lying around for a few years so might as well try it out.
