    M76 Rifle

    Someone was asking about this so dug out some photo on it. Been a few years since I mentioned it so thought I would post them here too.
    AWO built 8mm M76 designated marksman rifle.

    Thanks Greg.....You've just made my day better...I'm partial to 8mm anything, and that is better than about anything.

    Originally made in Serbia, when it was part of Yugoslavia. Gun is all Serbian, but the U.S. made receiver. Although it was never a F/A
    BATF did not like some feature in the original Serbian military receiver, so they had to be reassemble on U.S. made receivers. Came with
    original Serbian made military scope. Century put some together, but I went with Assault Weapons of Ohio (AWO) M76 build. Uses
    10 rd mags, but AWO designed 27 rd mags for them and I got a couple of those to go with the 10rd mags. M76 receiver is milled
    not stamped.
