    Default Newly aquired svt 40 question

    I recently picked up an svt40 that I've been wanting for years. My question is, my handguard moves back and forth a good 1/4" and it bugs the hell out of me. Are they all this way, or is this abnormal? It seems that maybe its made that way as you have to slide the metal upper guard back a little ways to remove it. I'd appreciate if any other svt owners would respond to let me know if this is normal. Thanks for any help.

    It's very common on these. It won't cause any issues, but you can always use a thin piece of leather or cardstock as a shim if it bothers you.
