Picked up an SVT 40 Sniper today. It's a refurb but serial numbers on the receiver, stock and trigger guard match. Bolt is electro penciled. Rifling is strong but dark in the groves. The scope is an original SVT 40 scope With aged scope cover, but the mount is a repro. The Rifle is a 1941 dated Izzy with scope groves and what looks identical to the real machining on the rear of the receiver. The scope has been authenticated as a legitimate SVT 40 scope but who knows with all the forgeries being done. The strange thing is I can not find any import marks on it anywhere. I've stripped the rifle and still could not find any import marks anywhere.
