    I have one, a tula 1941 SA marked Sliver bolt. I love mine, its most likely my favorite gun I own. I will take a better picture when I get home.

    What is the rifle that's above the SKS that's converted to accept AK mags?

    i picked one up at a steal a month or so back. It looks so sad sitting in my safe not having been shot yet. I need to order non corrosive ammo for it, and have no money.

    Mine eats surplus no problem, just clean it well afterwards, and NO heavy ball. And correct on the 52, nice shooter, just wish I could find more ammo at a reasonble price.

    If any of you need ammo I'd check out Widener's reloading and shooting supply, they have some of the cheapest priced ammo for the big cans of ammo at least for 7.62x54r Sorry for sounding like a commercial, but as soon as I get some money I'm getting some for my mosin

    I have 6 SVT-40s remaining in my collection/accumulation ... sold the dog of my SVT collection in Fall'10 (the guy lied about the bored condition when I purchased it 6-8 years ago).

    I have found them to be relatively accurate, looooong, comfortable to shoot (low recoil) and LOUD. My last acquisition I built-up from a barreled-receiver that I found online.

    Here are some pics of mine. I enjoy it quite a bit, they are different and I have not had any problems out of mine. I do only shoot modern ammo in mine, and I reload for it as well.

    You do need stay under 150gr for the bullets....they are LOUD.

    Here are a few pics of mine....My bear gets mad if he is not in the photos.

    The bear came from Cabelas a few years ago. You have got to be careful when you come into my house...he is always there and always standing guard....currently he has a type 99...he told me he like that long poker on the end of the rifle.
