I'm not sure if new spec svt's are strippable but if they are this will be the way to do it.

then just select russia and then scroll down to svt there should be a link to dissasembly

I assume you have striped the wood to get it that light.
Is that the finished colour or are you going to apply something.

I note that you also have the sniper rails which indicates early production.
Does it have the notch in the back of the receiver to allow the scope mount to lock?

Cheers guys,

Reme, I have stripped it back to the bare wood, cleaned it up, sanded it a bit to smooth it off, and has had 2 coats of linseed oil, was going to leave it at that,

As for the sniper rails, hadn't noticed really, back of the receiver is the 'swingy bit' to press the quick release trigger, and there is a very small notch under that in the metal work? that what you mean?

Are other angles of the rails, looks like what you have on yours.

Yeah looks the same, not sure whats needed on the back end of the receiver, there doesn't seem to be many pics without the scope on?

Why does that push the price up :D

You can read all about the SVT on this site.

http://www.mosinnagant.net/USSR/svt401.asp

All early production weapons (up till late 42) had the sniper Rails machined, but witout the cut out to allow the scope mount to lock, it is not a true Sniper. I have never seen a picture of this cut out so I cannot comment further.

If anyone has a picture showing this mod to the back of the receiver I would be interested to see it.
