Nice, an SVT-40 is on my want list. They are just too cool not to have one.

Couldn't agree more.

Nice looking rifle. I prefer them in their non-refurb form. Though like you said, it appears this one has seen some refinishing at some time.

It might be an un-stamped Finnish capture. They exist.

I've never heard of the C marks being anything other than just inspection stamps. I don't think it has anything to do with a Cнайпер designation (unless you have some documentation to show otherwise). I highly doubt the C stamps inside the stock/handguard are anything but just that...somebody's "mark" at the factory. Soviets stamped EVERYTHING (check out the underside of receiver & barrel of an old M91).

Profile of the notch looks done later, either in the field or here in the US. Original ones are milled, not filed.

Really nice set of photos though!

Fate, thanks for the comments. I like the unrefurbed ones as well, but I don't see them for sale very often.

I sold mine off about 2 yrs ago. It was a matching, Finn capture, rare early "no rail" version that frankly became scary to shoot, just for the risk of damaging it. I sold it to another collector and bought something I didn't mind putting rounds though.

I'm tempted to sell mine and get a run of the mill Russian refurb. What made yours 'scary to shoot'?

That's a nice one, that stock is very interesting!

Ive got a 1941 Izhevsk finnish capture with no import marks.

I understand what you're sayin Fate, I don't shoot mine nearly as much as i'd like too, just because i don't want to damage it.

Too bad I'll never know how it got burnt.

Fantastic, thank you for sharing. Excellent pictures too. That is a rare bird indeed, I have only seen two other original matching SVT40s. I have two Finn captures, but yours is on another level.

They are legal, no modifications necessary. It doesn't have a pistol grip.

Why in 2002 did these become 'evil'?

the unrefurbed tend to've been finn captures during the winter war. so they've got great stories in their bones, too.

unlike many german RCs which were in aresenals or handed in to Soviets who were occupying vast areas of pre-war Reich territoriy, the Finns only access to SVT40s would be, i assume, picking them up off the battlefield.
