    Doin' a deal on a 1941 Soviet SVT-40

    Found a 1941 Soviet made SVT-40 last week at the LGS. This semi-auto milsurp is probably a depot refurbished rifle since the stock/receiver/barrel are in such good shape. I will be able to trade into this for about 2 to 4 times less than what these rifles go for on GB. I figure to finish the deal with the LGS early next week. This rifle will be a hoot to shoot---basically the Soviet version of a M1 Garand but in 7.62X54R. The Nazis used captured SVT-38s and SVT-40s as the inspiration for their Gewehr 43.

    How is the bore? SA marked? Plum colored bolt?
    Imhop the coolest looking semi rifle ever made.
    I put a replacement stainless gas system innards in mine, saved the originals. Also a adjustment tool is nice if you can find one.
    Whats the store asking? Seems like the market is $1200 or so.

    Plum colored bolt and forgot to look if its SA marked. Bore is good and the LGS is asking 1200 bucks which I didn't have a problem with. Rifle stock and metal parts are in very good shape. I figure this rifle was rebuilt/fixed up after the war and has a lot of useage left to be had. Its in as good a shape as my '43 Izy Mosin-Nagant which was also refurbished after the war and is a very good shooter.

    Most plum bolt rifles are refurbs, good rifles. Finn ones are usually in the white. Good luck!

    Brought the SVT-40 home today after the tradin' was done at the LGS. The rifle is in great shape but it has no Finnish capture marks anywhere. Now I need to get a SVT tool and figure out what setting to use for the gas system. I might be able to get some pics up on MO tonight depending on what the boss needs. Seems like I can't leave the job behind lately after leaving the office. Probably because I am the only one in the actual office doing any real work due to the China Virus...….

    Nope! Just a duplicate 300 Blackout and a couple revolvers that I hadn't shot in a few years that were gathering dust.

    Here are the pics of the SVT-40 I hurriedly took last night. Didn't have a lot of time to arrange things so these photos aren't the best.....
