    Still a great looking rifle, Dave! And to have an original mount is fantastic.

    Many serial numbers were added to the list from mounts. 80% of them were in relic condition. So I think it guarantee originality
    Here are 2 new serials - СЖ816 and СА1488
    Interesting observation - relic mounts are much more common than relic sniper SVT's. Maybe that's why they are so rare nowdays

    For your records I have SVT-40 dated 1941, B536, all matching (not forced) including scope mount which is well proofed in very good condition although the stock has been sanded lightly with the only remaining mark a Star on the right side of the butt. Scope bears a different serial number. Mint bore and shoots very well. Just shot it along with a G43 for comparison and I preferred the SVT, lighter and just as powerful. Both would ding the 600 yard gong with regularity.

    What is the first letter of serial number prefix?
    Can you post photos? All matching sniper SVT's (with mount) before were observed only in museums

    Wow! Congratulations! Unique rifle - first known to me non-museum all matching example of SVT sniper rilfe!
    Many collectors are opposite to pictures of original notches for mount pin in receiver, so it will be better if you remove that picture (1 post, 5th picture)

    Agreed, a very nice rifle though too bad about the stock.

    Can you add a pic of the bolt carrier SN? I assume it is without the Cyrillic prefix?

    Per request I removed the notch photo. I understand the reluctance to show that detail. As to the bolt carrier # I will try. I have never dismounted it so that will require some experimentation. Larry

    I think Vic and the rest of us have given up on the notch thing. I had this debate with him recently and he says it is a lost effort. Thanks regardless. The rifle is a treasure. It was certainly a sniper from day one and the notch, proofs, etc. are spot on. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for the kind words, but it is not perfect. I don't have a proper cleaning rod so if anyone know where I could buy one I would appreciate the information. Thanks Larry

    I agree with this. If recently main indicator of originality was notch, now it's clearly visible that 1941 sniper rifles match SN number ranges. Over 110 SN's of original sniper 1941 SVT's are known, and all of them match supposed criteria. I know only 2 regular rifles (from over 550 Tula 1941 rifles known to me) that fits supposed sniper range, both have close serials, so it can be some temporary halting. So in case with 1941 snipers it is possible to verify originality at 98-99% only by serial number.
    Situation with 1942 snipers is more difficult. They are also groupped in prefixes, bud digits in SN are random. But quantity of regular rifles with rails in 1942 is even smaller than quantity of sniper rifles (and they are also have mostly sniper prefixes). So I would say serial number (in case with 1942 snipers it will be only letter prefix) gives 70-80% guarantee of originality

    Larry:

    Thanks for posting the pictures. Great rifle.

    You should be able to see most of number on the underside of the carrier handle without disassembly.

    Larry, is there any story behind this rifle? Where did it came from?

    I agree with my friend Ratnik, a 41 rifle is the safest bet. All of mine have been from 41. They can be IDed, thanks to his and Vic's help. Also, more info on Larry's rifle would be great.

    As I said, Larry, you have a treasure. Thanks for posting.

    I really don't have much to go on. I bought the SVT , a G43, a High turret K98 sniper, two Jap snipers and some other pre WWI mausers over a period of years at a now defunct California gun show called the Great Western Gun Show. It was an enormous show, made the current Tulsa show seem small in comparison. A great loss to the political whims of one politician.

    Picked up a SVT-40 with rails, notch, (no mark in notch) and C on right side of receiver. It is a 1941 Tula ser #пж180x. Can you tell me anything about it? Stock, receiver and trigger group match, mag and bolt group penciled.

    Most likely original sniper rifle. Why "most likely" - because it is new, currently unknown sniper prefix.
    Can you post photos?
    Rifle is refurb, other parts even they have same SN's are not original to rifle and are forcematched

    Yes, this is original sniper. Many serial numbers to sniper list (I would say 30-40%) came from Canada due huge quantity of SVT's imported there

    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to this forum but I'm reading quite intently to try to determine the lineage if the svt I just bought. It has 1941 stamped on it with a small star above it and a couple other cryllic symbols. Serial is hm147 which is also stamped on the buttstock left hand side. On the right buttstock there is a faded star as well as other faded characters, some kind of circle. it has scope mounting rails along with the rounded notch.
    What else do I need to look for to see if this is authentic?

    Hello!
    Can you post pictures of serial number (left side of the receiver) and right side of the receiver (area with proofmarks) ?

    Yes, I have seen it on the list. Now I'm on vacation but when I come back I will add a couple of photos. Nice to see that the rifles with the notch haven't bene choosen from theyr accuracy but in a small serie.

    thanks, I've shot it twice just for fun and now I just bought a replica scope for it. Any idea how accurate these rifles are? I know a lot depends on the cartridge however back then did they get issued special ammo or the same stuff as everyone else?

    Also, do you guys know where I can get an authentic 1941 mount and scope? I see one mount on GoBroke but it is a 1942 with no prefix.

    Yes, this rifle is OK. But it is not CH902, but СЖ902 and it is already in the list
