You sound biased. To me the rifle sold for to much and was falsely advertised. The title claimed that is was a "non rebuilt" and it clearly has had some things done to the stock. And it looks to me like the stock has a large crack in it on the left side.Actually, nobody knows how and when these rifles came into US, there are very few of them in US and it is all factory original. Stocks are original and had serial numbers added vertically probably by whatever country military requirements.
Price is not outrageous - how many of 1943 SVTs in such condition are known to exist in US? A dozen? Maybe two dozens?
Is your untouched bringback a 1943 SVT40?
