Posting my newly acquired SVT-40 [SA] Finn capture, SVT Stock, early swivel sling, non-import, non-refurb.

Photos include my 1941 Tula Original Sniper as well in an AVT stock. I figured some people could use side by sides with stocks, finish, refurb, etc... plus they are gorgeous! :)

Does the receiver/barrel have any type of refurb mark and then they slapped on a non-refurb bolt, or is everything original?

Looks nice. Looks like a Finnish refurbished stock and the gun is in exc shape. Matching?

Thanks Vic! No, nothing matches on the Finn Capture as usual. Is the 2068 stamp, above the [SA] and original serial, a new Finnish designation serial? Did they do that?

Nice! Very nice.


Finnish depot oil job on the stock, light one though. How on earth the metal has so good bluing left!

The blueing is pretty remarkable! How many (roughly) of these SVT's came into the states before mandatory Import marks started, how much more desirable does that make a rifle?
