    Default SVT-40 Sniper list

    List is not updated since March 2020. Updated list is available here. Plese check!

    Sniper SVT's can be split at 2 groups
    1) Factory issued. These are sniper rifles produced in 1941 and 1942 by plant #314 Tula\Mednogorsk. In this list I will track only these rifles, that have correct shape notch with flat bottom and rounded corners.
    2) Field made snipers - these could be any SVT with factory rails and field made notch

    Also, here are few links, that will help in verification of originaility of SVT scope mount

    __________________________________________________ ___________________

    1941 Tula sniper rifles

    Production period - March-October 1941
    Produced quantity (source) :
    March - 1012
    April - 3015
    May - 4106
    June - 5013
    July - 7600
    August - 7500
    September - 8000
    October - 1760
    Total - 38006

    I have assumption, that all sniper SVT's produced in 1941 by plant #314 Tula, are grouped in letter prefixes, and have numerical prefixes less then 2000.
    Most of them are additionaly marked with C mark at the righr side of the receiver, but some rifles don't have it

    1941 mount


    __________________________________________________ ___________________

    1942 Mednogorsk sniper rifles
    Production period - January-October 1942
    Produced quantity (source):
    January - 2
    February - 0
    March - 310
    April - 400
    May - ?
    June - ?
    July - ?
    August - ?
    September - ?
    October - 160
    Total - 14220

    Rule "numerical prefix less than 2000" is not correct for them. Regular and sniper rifles can be mixed in one prefix, but all known sniper rifles are grouped in few prefixes.
    It is harder to gather information about 1942 SVT snipers, because they are more scarce, and I can't track 1942 letter prefixes from mounts - in 1942 only numerical prefix was stamped at mounts.
    1942 snipers don't have C proofmark

    Ratnik....thank you for making this effort. Happily my presumed "correct and original sniper" (still a refurb) falls into the prefix and S/N parameters you describe.

    Can you post S\N of your rifle? If you don't wish to show it all, write at least prefix and first 2 digits.
    New numbers in the list will make it more comprehensive

    Just add 2 new serials, both have new prefixes - CA and TB. TB is last prefix in 1941 and don't have C proofmark, as 1942 snipers.

    Thank you! Hope that you will be a good example to others, and they will also share with serials

    Here are three of the four I have had. All are 41 Tula, all have the C proof on the right receiver and all have original notch. I will look for the fourth serial as I cannot find pictures of it.

    Not sure if it helps, but I have 1941 Tula ПБ 71## that has no rails whatsoever. According to Vic, there was a small batch of 41 Tulas that were rushed thru and skipped the step. I assume it happened after Operation Barbarossa had begun. Makes sense that sniper production would have ceased by this point as they were just trying to field anything they could.

    I also track rails at all 1941 and 1942 Tula's. But I'm currently not ready to show my list. I attach scaled screenshot of my list, just to sow percentage of rifles with rails and without. Red cells - rifle without rails. More than 50% of 1941 rifles in my list don't have rails. Possibly it can be explained that many prewar 1941 SVT's were captured by Germans, and then they were lost.
    Rails disappeared soon after war beginning to simplify production. But production of sniper rifles were not stoped, and was continued under october, when plant #314 was evacuated to Mednogorsk.
    First subprefix without rails - MX xxxx. Before there are 6 subprefixes with rails - AХ, ВХ, ГХ, ЖХ, Их, ЛХ.
    Then goes 5 subprefixes without rails - MX, HX, ПХ, СХ, ТХ. In MX, HX, СХ, subprefixes some rifles with rails are observed. Possibly it can be explained with use of prewar issued recievers.

    Unfortunately I must concur with Ratnik's opinion on KAIFS rifle...that it is not a genuine factory sniper.

    Ratnik,
    Could you explain the significance of the notation "NIPSVO test rifle" that you use in your list. I am curious of the meaning.
    Thank You,
    Mark

    NIPSVO KA (Научно исследовательский полигон стрелкового вооружения Красной Армии) - scientific research proving ground of infantry weapons of Red Army. Each quarter of the year they tested all models of infantry weapons that were produced for control quality purposes.
    Serials were taken from their reports.
    But this was not only proving ground - for example, in 1940, when mounts for SVT was tested, 1 mount was designed by Tokarev, 3 others - by NIPSVO.
    Also in 1942, engineer of NIPSVO, Sudaev, created his famous submachine gun, PPS

    No, original number is CA 3105 Well if you look at the picture of the serial thats what it looks like to me. It is CA 310 and the 5 is fin (SA) added and a strike put threw the 10.

    I have a 1941 tula with what i will say sn Hb 615. It has a c on the right side. No markings in the notch. I bought it years ago just to have a SVT prior to knowing anything about them.

    Yes, this must be original. Before I do not observe ПГ prefix, but suppose it, as ПБ

    Gentlemen, this is a great deal of information, thanks for sharing, i was wondering what you think of my mount, I always considered it to be original, i felt no one could "age" the mount the way it is. i have owned this rifle for quite a number of years. not knowing much about the SVT sniper when i got it, just thinking condition looked like what i thought a Russian rifle would. there are no import marks on it. anyway i will try to post some photos of the mount. thanks David.Click image for larger version.

    Mount is original, produced in 1942. Scope is late 1941 production. Please post additional pictures of the rifle, as Mike asked

    Yes, the mount looks good from what I can see. Seeing more of the rifle is a gift.

    I dont think there is a C on the receiver but i will check, i had these photos on my phone and i am at work so i will have to photo the side and the notch, no knowing much years ago i bought it based on the rifle condition and lack of import marks and the fact that the mount (i thought was original), I hold an FFL and had one of the SOG rifles from 94 in my stuff, started out buying the mount and ended up with the whole rifle. someday hoped to do a semi-auto sniper display of it with my M1's and a G43 (that never happened..LOL) anyway here is what i have.Click image for larger version.

    Unfortunately, this rifle is not factory-issued sniper.
    But original mount that you have, nowadays is much more rare that rifle itself. Sniper rifles periodically appears in sale.

    Ouch. Someone ruined an original finish Tula 1941 with a fake notch. Other parts match?

    as far as I remember everything was numbered to the rifle except the mag, which had another rifle number and x2 on it which I guessed was the spare mag for another rifle. although I have not disassembled it in years. thanks to all for the information.
