Besides the SKS and AK variants, what weapons use the 7.62x39 cartridge?
When the shooting starts you will always wish you had brought a bigger gun and more ammo

There are some commercial bolt actions from CZ and Zastava

Thompson Center and NEF Handi-Rifle single shots

Some AR15 uppers, Mini 30

The only other platform actually designed for the cartridge I can think of offhand is the Czech VZ58

The CZ/VZ 52 rifle was originally chambered in Czech 7.62x45- the 52/57 was that rifle updated to use 7.62x39

And of course, the M43 was the parent of the 220 Russian, and the grandpappy of the 22 PPC, and the 6mm PPC (short range accuracy KING) so, in a way, it's worked it's way into a lot of differing weapons.
