This Rifle was purchased from an Advanced Collector
I wonder how much they gave him for it

Gawd I'd love to own one of those.

But not for $1900. The repro scope aint worth that much to me.

And ... someone bought it.

Original WWII Russian SVT-40 semi-automatic 7.62x54R caliber Rifle with reproduction SVT Scope and Mount. This Historic rifle is dated 1942 and was manufactured at the TULA Arsenal. Includes original Bayonet and Scabbard and features a great bore (Not often seen on this model Rifle). This Rifle was purchased from an Advanced Collector and is the actual rifle pictured. Only this 1 to sell!

If it is an original sniper rifle with the correct notch in back of the receiver for the scope mount locking pin, the price is not out of line.

Figure a decent regular SVT-40 is worth in the $900-$1,100 range and a real sniper notched one would probably have no problem in the $1,500-$1,600 or more range.

Bayonet and scabbard are probably currently worth around $250, if the sling is a real WW2 era SVT item (looks like it is) it's worth around $50.

Replica scope and mount at least $250, probably $350 if the mount is one of the really high quality ones that came out of the former Soviet Union a few years ago.

Lens caps about $15-$20 if new Ukrainian made, and $45-$50 if original Soviet.


If anyone has an SVT they are thinking of scoping or re-scoping, or has a nice Mosin PU scopeless or ex-sniper that will be needing a scope, I have a pretty scarce original 1940 FED (this was the NKVD's factory in Kharkov) SVT PU scope that is in excellent all original condition and configuration for sale. It has no post-war inspection/refurb markings although it does come with it's number matching 1980's dated OKT inspection slip. It still has the original WW2 non-tinted lenses, and it HAS NOT been modified with a 91/30 ballistics bullet drop compensation cam, so it still has the original range markings on the elevation adjustment cap and is not CB marked like most of them are.

I'm asking $300 for it. If you know what it is and you need or want it, you know it's worth it.

Wow... i got excited till I saw repro scope. That is a hefty price tag for an SVT 40. Great gun though.

Well, if you want a nice, totally correct, early WW2 SVT PU scope for an original WW2 condition and configuration SVT, this is it.

Is there any way for a US resident C&R license holder to acquire one of those legally?

Does yours have the rails for the scope?

Is it all number matching including the magazine and bayonet/

Is it forced matched?

What is the condition of the barrel?

You have the same DUTCH repair on the stock as mine (common area on stock that cracks and breaks off while shooting) so I would have thought it was post WWII rebuild but I do not see the heavy Lacquer Globbed onto the stock so got to ask if you refinished the stock on this?

Curious, are you still trying to sell it? No serious interest right now but maybe with the current panic it might be a better time to sell.

What makes me sick is thanks to King George the Bush the First this is considered non-sporting and can not be imported, while they are being imported into Canada at ~$200 and sold for ~$350. If only it did not cost nearly $1k and 1 year to import one from Canada.

Both appear to be nice rifles by the way.

No way, unfortunately. . . they are not importable under ANY circumstances since 1994.

That sling does look right. I can barely see the curve of the spear tip strap attachment point. If so, that sling alone is worth way more than $50 Marcus. More like $150.

The problem with SVT-40 snipers is they're easy to fake. Without pics of that notch, based on price in today's market, I doubt it's legit.

ps. Welcome Dennis. Glad to see you here.

Original magazines go for $200 to $300 each.
