Hi Fellas,

Picked up my SVT Monday and have been going over the GB tutorial. I noticed a few things while comparing it to the data. I was able to get a break in my kitchen remodel, actually I stopped because I couldn't wait any longer, and the boss was gone. I took the bolt & trigger group out, so I could drool over everything, and run some Butches Bore Shine through the barrel.

All the groups were pretty clean, but the bore could use some love. Quickie clean job, but it's still pretty dark, lands look sharp, grooves still have crap in them. I just wanted to do what I could and get some oil in there. I'm pretty sure it's gonna shoot good regardless.

Everything EPd has the same number, including the brake, but not the mag. No rails, I guess I jumped the gun when I got a scope mount I stumbled across, now I'll have to find another rifle that fits it .

'41 Tula star refurb. Haven't looked everywhere for the marks, but the most obvious are:
Plumb bolt forced matched carrier & bolt
TG (narrow) & receiver numbers match, but it has 2 letters "CM" preceding the serial, where the chart only shows 1 letter
Safety has a hole
Matching stock struck horizontally
Mag epd not matching, it's mag #3 with the original serial stamped out, has a single lug, not quite round pin hole
Thicker AVT furniture and 7 hole HG
2 port brake
Correct canvas and leather sling with buckles and dog collar attached at butt, 2 piece front sling swivel

I got baggie of goodies, the fella said there was a gas adjusting tool. Haven't dumped that stuff out and inventoried it. Plan on getting the stainless parts now that it's in my hot little hands.

Also ran across 1K Russian X54 at '90s prices, and I've already been sitting on a ton of it for the Mosins.

The SVT40 is a pretty cool machine thing. I hope it doesn't send me down the rabbit hole.

3 SKSs make bail Thursday. I'll get some pictures up of this latest stuff when I'm able.

Just for giggles, I drug out my FN49 to handle them side by side. SERIOUS main battle rifles. They're both too cool, I feel fortunate to have been able to acquire them.

This is better than Christmas. PAX

Welcome to yet another addiction. :thumb: I bought mine as a retirement gift to myself. I have had a good time with it and learned a lot. Done a lot so shooting and hand loading as well. Even bought the T-Shirt to wear to gun shows. :)

Sorry guys. I took a few pictures this morning, but photobucket is giving me grief, so that's all I got time for. PAX

Thank Guys,

In the baggie of goodies that came with, the fella said there was a gas adjusting tool included, but there wasn't. Haven't dumped that stuff out and inventoried it, but in a quick once over I saw 3 hammer types, 4 triggers, 2 FPs, couple pistons, sight ladders, and mess of screws, springs and trigger guts. Plan on getting the stainless parts (or maybe it has then already).

I guess I'll have to get that Garand now 8) PAX
