    Unfortunately the notch has been badly mutilated by bubba ruining it in the process. It is visible in picture 7 when enlarged, you can see where it was filed at the back at the edges. I asked for and received additional pictures of it, ruined a nice rifle IMO. I hope whoever purchased it is aware of this issue, otherwise they're in for a nasty surprise on an $1800 rifle

    The middle section still retains the proper width so technically the mount should sit just fine especially the original one since the buffer spring is so much tighter than on repros. I think it's mostly cosmetical and shouldn't affect the rifle and mount in a bad way. Can't think of a reason why would one file it for? But I guess bubba knows better))) I was trying to get it and sent an email to the seller with an offer but we couldn't come to an agreement

    I saw it the first time he posted it at 1900.00. I asked for better pictures of the notch which he sent but couldn't conclude it was an original sniper due to the notch condition and passed. No one bid on it the first go round and I dropped it from my watch list due to the notch condition after the first auction. I still need a good 1942 SVT sniper for my collection.
    Interested in buying a factory original Izhevsk PU sniper with original wartime matched scope. Long shot but a guy can dream!

    Stock is messed with on that rifle. I can't believe it sold for so much but it is a legit sniper.

    To your earlier posts, I find that almost all the time that the rear section of the notch is damaged on original SVT snipers. I think it tends to be a result of hammering the pin into place on the mount. Just a observation.

    The boys in the machine shop were hung over that day. The notch looks a bit "off" to me.

    Notch is fine. Like Msniper mentioned the rear section is beaten up by the cross pin so it has a bit weird shape. My 41 unrefurbed tula is almost the same.

    I have 4 of them (all on the list) and none look exactly like that. I guess it could be the result of someone "improving" an original notch with files- doesn't look like recoil damage to me. I've carefully measured the notches on mine (2 41's and 2 '42's) and they were certainly very carefully machined at Tula. Very difficult to mimic by hand with files.

    There's no reason to improve them by filing since all known repro mounts fit as is without any modifications. I've seen many legit snipers with beat up edges mostly in the rear and this is one of them just like the other one that sold few days earlier on gb. We can only speculate that it's caused by the cross pin during recoil, there might be other reasons but I can't think of one. The notch is 100% legit and the mount will sit perfectly fine there. Wouldn't be a deal breaker for me i i'd be after it

    Yes. I think someone stripped or sanded the stock.

    The notch on this rifle is just fine. The rear is damaged from the pin and recoil. This is common and not concerning in the slightest. The rifle is clearly authentic sniper. Serial number is correct as is the year and manufacturer. And it has the "C" on the right side of the receiver.

    What is the purpose of the spring loaded plunger on the back end of the scope mount ? I was told by Finnbear that the cross pin that locked the mount to the receiver in the wide notch was to keep the mount in the forward position and under recoil allowed it move rearward and return it to the same location . The wide notch allowed the locking pin to be easily removed to allowing the mount to be removed in the field . But Finnbear has been know to be wrong on some things .

    pop63: Seems to me it's the other way around- the spring holds the mount in a rearward position and allows it to move forward under recoil (ie acts as a buffer). The spring pushes the mount back into battery and the curved side of the pin rests on the similarly curved rear of the notch. Every repro mount I've tried (3) has the pin riding up too high and the pin mashes the upper corner of the notch. Interestingly, none of my 4 (which all came in the recent batches of refurbs) showed any damage to the notch. So, either they were unused as snipers or the real mounts fit properly. A few shots with one of the improperly dimensioned repros will do visible damage. Here is a couple of the shots of the notch on the Gunbroker rifle pointed out by pavlin. I still think it looks a bit strange.

    I'm wondering who bought this rifle. Mount is very close to to original, but on my opinion it is reproduction of some new type, that we do not saw earlier
    We have long discussion with Horilka about it
    Rifle itself looks good

    Never seen on original mounts swirl marks like this one has on the back where the serial is. Picture #14 shows sticking out buffer screw, it's gotta be flush and staked and not half way out. The biggest give away are the extra cut outs on either side of cross pin opening. See the picture. Those are cast tabs)

    If you look closely at tula star on the left mount you can see a circle inside the star. Looks like they used screw driver star bit to strike it

    Serial numbers were collected by me at various forums/websites. So pictures of your rifle were posted somewhere earlier (possibly by previous owner)

    It cannot be. The production started just in 1941. And protorifles are beyond rare.

    Spectacular piece, except for the spooned out area around the crossbolt. It would probably keep me up at night.

    Looked like a Finnbear to me, but the $6k closing price made me think maybe it was real

    It was a very nice and rare rifle. Mount is a FINN bear fake. But the rifle (even with the small issues which were the stoke damage, enhanced Tula star and likely heat shields replaced) was worth the final price. Congrats to the new owner. I hope they post better pictures so I can add it to my website.
