Russian SVT-40 semi auto rifle in 7.62x54R caliber. The barrel is 24" long plus the length of the flash hider. The bore is bright and shiny with some light frosting. The top receiver is stamped with the Tula Arsenal "Star" over the year of manufacture 1941. This rifle has the Finnish property stamp (Boxed SA) above the original serial number (Cyrillic letters with 3315). This indicates that it was captured and put into service with the Finnish Army. These SA marked SVT's were captured between 1941 and 1944 on the northern area of the Eastern front when the Fins were allied with the Germans. I understand that the Fins captured around 15,000 of these and they went into the official inventory. I have read that around 10-12,000 of these may have been sold off in the 50s and or early 60s with most of them probably ended up going to the U.S. Most of these were imported to the U.S. before the import markings were required. They usually went through a Finnish rebuild program that left them with mixed numbers and possibly a replacement stock but otherwise untouched. The metal is in VG to excellent condition. The stock is an arsenal refinish and the stock cartouches are erased. The top chamber and trigger guard are stamped with the Russian IZHEVSK mark (an arrow in a triangle). This is a desirable collectors piece and is one of around 12,000 captured. Apiece of history. This item will be carefully packaged with extreme care and insured for the selling price.
