They look like the same myraid Soviet proof marks found on every Soviet/Russian weapon. How about a pic of the whole rifle? :p

The circled 'L' is the mark of a finnish company contracted to inspect and rebuild SVT's, post war.

Give credit where credit is due, and that's to Vic.
I have only seen the 'L' on rifles that were also renumbered by the Finn's, with the Finn number stamped above the original serial number which was lined out.

The mark is of the Lindoflin company and it was not post war but during and after.

That's a Soviet mark, I think. Any serial number markings on the bolt carrier, bolt or stock?
I think I've seen that rifle before, was it on auction at one time?

Bolt has mismatched numbers, Bolt carrier has no numbers, Stock has numbers but so faint there unreadable also has a faint Tula star on stock. Butt plate has a small tula star. rear sight has a star. Yea i got it off of gunbrokers a few days ago.
