I am getting ready to buy a SVT-40 with side rails. It won’t have the notch on the top of the receiver. It’s my understanding that the notch is very, very rare and expensive.

I was wondering if the reproduction mounts have a tighter tolerance so it is a much tighter fit on the side rails of the SVT-40 thus eliminating the need for the top receiver notch to keep the mount in place.

Thanks,

Joe

The original notch is uncommon and a bit pricey but not rare.

Some have used glue and other methods to retain the mount. Maybe better to buy one that someone has already added a notch??

If you don't have a notch, be sure to test fire with the mount on the rifle and no scope -no sense sending a good scope flying as you try to see if the mount holds.
