    I have an interesting piece here. It is an SVT-40 manufactured during WWII in 1941 at Izhevsk, Russia. It is a great, hard-hitting military collectible that is getting harder and harder to find.

    The SVT-40 shoots 7.62x54r ammunition loaded from a 10-round detachable magazine or stripper clip. (Of note: this rifle was very advanced in its time for its use of the detachable mag, but interestingly the intent to reload the rifle was to leave the mag attached and recharge it via stripper clips through a slot cut into the top of the receiver .). Unlike a Romanian PSL or AK/RPK type weapon which uses a 'long-stroke' piston to cycle the bolt, the SVT uses a 'short-stroke' arrangement much more like a true Dragunov rifle, so accuracy is VERY good even with its open sights . Also, unlike a Romanian PSL which can be damaged if not using the specific x54r ammunition it was designed for, the gas piston of the SVT has a 5-port gas valve to vary the force of the stroke based on the type of ammo being shot. This saves the receiver from excessive force and greatly extends the versatility of the weapon. The SVT's receiver is forged.

    This example is an arsenal rebuild with a 'plumb' colored electropenciled bolt , . Its barrel, rifling and exterior metal finish are in good shape . No rust or corrosion. The wood stock, finished in a typical Russian 'beetle-shell' shellac is also in decent shape

    im looking to trade for another firearm or firearms, as for what im intersted in, im fairly open just shoot me a message and an offer

    pics coming soon
