Default Svt-40

Hello all I'm new to the site and was just wondering if it's at all possible to find an SVT 40 that's not gonna cost me an arm and a leg.

I've noticed they're alot cheaper in Canada but as I understand, there's not gonna be alot of folks able and willing to import them without jacking up the price.

I do have a mosin, and want a companion to it.

Hey, welcome, and perhaps introducing yourself
I wish I could afford an svt-40 but, alas I can't afford one either.
If you get your curious and relics license, you may be able to find suppliers with lower costs, and the c&r license is only 30 bucks, for 3 years. Gun broker can also help with lowering the cost of achieving an svt.
Good luck, Paul

The last one I saw was 1200$.

Yeah, I'd like one, too.

Bet rapid fire kicks like a mule,

I know my Garand does...

"IVAN"? What is that, an M38?

Yeah, I just got a 1933- 91/30 Tula Hex with matching serials.

I'd love to have a semi that fires the same ammo.

A person on another forum just picked up a Finn capture SVT-40 for $600.00. I found a great one in "new" refurb condition in the Spring of this year for $250.00. Keep looking, it can happen.

These are really neat rifles, but when you take one apart you see why they may not have been the right rifle for the type of war the Russians were fighting. It would be very easy to lose parts during cleaning this rifle in wartime conditions.

That said, they are dang fun to shoot. They are like the SKS on steroids.

Only way to find one cheap is dig it out from under a collasped building in Budapest.

I'd love to find a cheap artillery model Luger. That ain't gonna happen, either!

Default ever consider how they load then SVT 38/40 mags

Loading rimmed cartridges ina box mag one has to stack the rims, the top cartridge in front the one below for optimum feeding, useally the action was so viciouse in its cycling to basicly over power the rim locked mag jam leads to all sorts of brass mangling and bits and pices + brass shavings entering the action mechanism.
the other type firearms mentioned were fielded by armies that fielded a cartridge better suited to feed through self loading arms, the mauser Brothers figured out back in the late 1880's as there earliest 1891 mauser and Mission 88 rifles were loaded with rimless rounds.
