    I would say much more then $30. I sold a VKT example on GB years ago for almost 3x that. Tough SVT tools to find.

    Possibly we are talking about different items.
    These are obviously fresh made

    The one tool is VKT and the other is marked V-S any idea on maker? I will probably ebay them, I thought $30 was extremely low also. Any thoughts on the prices I should list them at?

    I've heard that V-S is Vasa-Summa. Like I said in post #5........value is around $100 +/-

    And poorly made ones at that! I just received one today from seller Stalingrad42 and the pentagonal hole for the gas adjustment is way too large.

    I expected them to be reproductions because of the low price, but I didn't expect them not to work.

    Here it is(top) next to a real tool.

    No, no, no, you got that wrong, they were straight from a whorehouse in Siberia. (it was probably a translation error)

    Well, Stalingrad42 is going to have another tool made with the correct dimensions and send it to me at no cost. He did not make these and was unaware that they were out of spec. He has been very good to deal with and we have had excellent communication despite the fact that we speak different languages and are depending on Google translate.

    The tool is quite nice in every other respect.

    Hopefully he has several more made to correct dimensions and offers them to the community. $36 shipped is a very good price for a quality reproduction tool.

    Update...

    Received a new SVT40 sniper tool today and it's much better than the first one I received!

    I discovered that one side of the pentagonal hole for the gas regulator is slightly smaller than the other, probably due to the manufacturing method (laser cut?). The hole appears to have a very slight taper to it such that, on the gas regulator I checked, it fit nice and tight on one side of the tool but was slightly too small to fit on the other side of the tool. This might be an advantage for those that have worn regulators where a normal tool is too loose - one side of the tool fits a normal regulator, flip it over and use the slightly tighter hole for the worn regulator!



    I don't currently have SVT40s with worn regulators so I just spent about 90 seconds with a small file to open up the one side of the hole so it's symmetric.



    The other parts of the tool that I use appear to be a perfect fit.




    Anyway, Stalingrad42 is a man of his word and sent me the replacement free of charge! Buy with confidence.
