I like that svt-40. You don't see many of those around. How well does that shoot?

P.S. I love commie guns. Over 100 years of history right there. Wait... no AK?

Nice collection - Need to complete it with a true AK though - But the VZ will do meanwhile -

the svt is fun to shoot! its one of my favorites. the only thing i dislike about it is how difficult it is to clean; you have to take off the front ring and the stamped parts to get to the gas system, which is kind of a pain in the butt since the ring is on so tight.

nope, no ak... but i think the vz'll do as far as being representative of the "type". :) AKs seem to be their own family there are so many variants.

i think this'll conclude the commie stuff for me, now i need to get more mausers a garand and an enfield mk4 no2

The complexity of the svt-40 was it's downfall. Too complicated for the soviet grunts. Shortly after it was fielded in WWII, USSR withdrew it and re issued the nagant rifles. I heard those svt-40's are pretty accurate. Maybe after I get my C&R I will try to find one of those.

they're decent, yeah. and semi auto with the 7.62x54 is fun! :)

they're around, but they aint cheap. The SVT is nearly as much as the rest of the collection put together.
