I just paid a pretty penny for a STV 40 that has a notch on it. There were limited pictures, although the owner says he has had it in his safe since purchase and done nothing to it (my other 1941 has been sitting in my safe since 1995). What do you guys think?? I know I took a risk based upon the pic.


thanks

Army, as Mongo says, closeups would help. But, just as a first inpression from your picture the notch looks too wide and too far forward. The base should set in the rails at a point where the rear takedown access cover should open to the side with the mount in place. Again, just a first impression. Are there any marks within the notch?

I can't tell from the pictures but it does not look odd to me at all.

SVT Sniper?

I have never heard of there needing to be "C" stamped on the reciever somewhere.. Usually there are some small hash marks stamped near the milled slot used by the armorer to mill out the slot for correct alignment. Mine has the hash marks but no other marks in the bottom of the slot or on the reciever. Loren

The C is a new one on me as well.

One of my snipers, a 1942 Tula, has a C on the left side of the receiver just below the end of the rail. The notch is the wide late type notch with some marks in the bottom of the notch.
