Most, if not all, of the issues surrounding the SVT's had to do with reliability.. not accuracy as far as a semi automatic rifle is concerned. The AK took care of filling that nitch later on..
There is an additional cut on the receiver besides the rail mounts on authentic snipers. Most of the folks who own the original snipers will not discuss the location of the additional cut-out to try to keep bubba from converting the non-sniper rifles. There are also some other subtle differences in the authentic snipers. If you tried to fit an authentic sniper mount on a non-sniper, rail-cut rifle, it will not work without further modifications to the rifle.

The rifles did have a problem with vertical stringing which made them impractical as sniper weapons. That is why the PU-M-91/30 came back into production after the middle of the war.

I agree with this statement, but I would really like to have the SVT-40. I have the Dragonov with all the bells and whistles, but I think that the SVT-40 would be better. Almost as if the Mosin-Nagant and Dragonov had a child.

I think things got confused between the SVD and the SVT... Dragonov and Tokerev
