    I got this the other day. From what Ive found out so far, is its a SVT-40 prerunner of the SKS. I havent got to shoot her yet, but cant wait. Had to clean her really good. Had some kind of sticky stuff on the stock and still had cosmoline in the internals. The guy who had it wasnt much on cleaning. Shes working smooth now. I also got a butt load of ammo with her, and dont have much in it as far as money[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It looks like a great little gun! All the SKS's are known to be highly reliable shooters and this looks be be along the same lines of that classic design. Great find! Is the mag fixed?

    Thats a beaut.. looks much more aggressive then the typical SKS. I just purchased my first SKS over the weekend. Haven't shot her yet either. Been spending some time getting acquainted first.

    7.62x54mmR is a bit more impressive than the 7.62x39mm my SKS handles.

    I was thinking the same thing. When I saw it was chambered in x54R, it really made me want one.

    If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for it?

    I got the SVT 40 for $ 200 along with a bunch of ammo for it 7.62-54. I learned today that the SKS replaced the SVT because the military wanted a shorter rifle and the medium rang bullet. It was allso produced at the Tula armory Russia. HO yes and the mag does remove. 10 round

    What is the overall length on the SVT? I thought it actually looked shorter then my Type 56. Could be the picture angle

    SVT really wasn't a well made rifle it has numerous problems. I could go on & on, there great for the Cruffler but not for much more than a collectors piece.

    You gonna try to do anything with that electro pencil marking on the bolt handle? Would it even be legal to do anything about it?

    Probably not it is ugly isnt it. Just going to enjoy shooting the old girl. Was even eye balling a nice custom stock for it on ebay but the guy wants about what I have in the gun for it so I let it slide. I noticed on gun broker SVT 40s going from $1000 to 1500.
