    Does anyone know if the WWA examples are made up or original?
    I would assume post-war assembled.

    I have read that all their sniper rifles are made up from repro mounts and scopes... however the rifles themselves will be original 'sniper' rifles with the scope rail to the rear I assume... unless they've rigged that up as well...

    All prewar SVT's have rails. In Summer, 1941 construction was simplified, and rails were eliminated. But some single regular rifles with rails are observed in 1942. They are even more rare than 1942 sniper rifles, and mostly grouped in sniper prefixes.
    So rails does not mean that rifles was issued as sniper. There was special production line for sniper rifles. they were produced only by plant #314 in 1941-1942. 1941 rifles are mostly marked with C proofmark. Serial number of 1941 sniper rifle can't be higher that 2000, and they are grouped in few "sniper" prefixes.
    1942 were not marked with C proofmark, serial number can be higher 2000, but they are also grouped in prefixes.

    They were recently selling a K98 sniper with repro Indian/Pakistani optics and mounts. It was not mentioned in their description. I'm not a huge fan of WWA at all.
