OK, Just for F's and giigles.

My brother has dual citizenship since he married a Canuk. Does this provide a loop hole for him to buy a SVT-40 and or Russian SKS and bring it into the country?

I'm guessing that it's a legal grey area best not to get into. He probably can buy them and bring them into the country, but he'd be crazy to sell them in the USA, regardless of being a US citizen.

Not really a legal gray area. More of a paperwork nightmare. I'm certainly not an expert on the subject, but it seems to me that the process would require (at a minimum) satisfying all of the relatively complicated requirements for Canadian firearm ownership (money, paperwork, and time) and then finding an FFL in the US willing to file for an approval with the ATF to import firearms on his behalf, then do the DROS and such here.

In other words, just pay the $200 premium on those guns and buy them through the usual channels here. ;)

Or you could have gotten them at those prices back in the early 90's

Just shows us the true value of our over priced guns. This is what you get with artificial supply and demand.

No, CA and US dollars are about even right now. $1 USD = $.99 CDN.
