M76 is a Sako version of the Russian AK-47
In 1976, the M76 family of rifles was created for the export market; the firearms are offered in both selective-fire versions (for the military buyers) and the semi-auto only (for civilian sales). The M76 rifles are offered in 5.56mm NATO/.223 Remington , Soviet 7.62x39 and .308 Winchester/7.62mm NATO, and are quite similar in layout to the M71 family. A welcome change in the M76 series is the moving of the rear sight to the receiver cover on all models; this reversible rear sight gives the shooter a choice of either a peephole (for a faster sight picture) or a square notch. The M76 rifles also have a reshaped fore-end and pistol grip; these are closer to the conventional Kalashnikov shapes and are readily distinguished from the conical fore-ends and round ribbed pistol grips of the early M62-76 and the M71 firearms.
Like the Finnish military rifles, the export models have three styles of stocks. The “T” in an M76 rifle’s designation stands for tubular stock; “F”, for folding stock; “W”, for wood stock; and “P”, for plastic stock. A version of each of the following rifles is offered in either .223 or 7.62x39mm
