Nope. I do have the Remington 799 in 7.62x39.
Love it one of my most used rifles. I've taken deer, hogs bobcats and 'yotes.
I've got a Weaver 6x38 Classic mounted in Leupold Rifleman rings.
The 7.62x39 is a great little round.

Yes, except mine is the American CZ 527 in 7.62x39. Don't waste time looking on the CZ web page, I made mine out of parts - an American stock from a .221Fireball that got a Kevlar stock. This was one of the 'nice' walnut stocks CZ put on the early batches of 527s in .221FB. Removed the carbine barrel and turned off the rear sight metal on the barrel. Front sight is screwed and glued but comes off without too much effort. Now a scope lines up nicely with the higher comb of an 'American' version stock.
The CZ in 7.62x39 is one fun gun. I'm leary of shooting the steel jacketed bullet ammo I have. I killed a whitetail doe at about 135 yards with an SKS. I pulled steel jacketed bullets from laquered steel case ammo, and reinsert a quality jacketed soft point bullet [Speer/Hornady/Sierra] in over the same powder charge [powder never removed] and crimp the bullet with a Lee 'Factory Crimp' die. Works great and the empty can be flung 50' from the SKS without having to go hunt for it!
closeup picture shows 'flat' which is all that is left after turning barrel to remove sight base metal.
ps-scope shown is for target use only....fixed 4X goes on it for field/hunting use.

Well I Finlay got a chance to get a few rounds through the carbine last weekend.
Didn't do any bench resting to check how accurate it is but it really is a blast to shoot.
A friend and I ran some wolf 122 gr and some old old old Chinese sks ammo that I've had in the safe for about 16 years with no problems at all.

Hoping to get to the range next week for a real test run.

You still got the 6x38? Any interest in selling it?
