    They have arrived!! Still not sure what I'm looking at. But it is identical to the one in the ae50.net posted by MP43. Same markings on the receiver. So I think it's a Tokarev SVT-40. He sent me tons of stuff I wasn't expecting. It's funny he told my mom if I wasn't happy with them just bring them back and he would refund me my money. I had to call him and tell him how happy I was. He was relieved that I was happy with them. Great day.

    Great to hear. Congrats!
    What about the SKS? Chinese? Russian? Albanian?

    The SKS is not original. It's been parkerized and the bolt cover has been changed out for one with a scope mount. What's the best way to check the SKS origin?? The SKS is a very nice looking gun just not original. He said he has had it for close to 30 yrs. Trying to get pics up loaded. Thanks MP43. You've been a ton of help.

    Hope this works. Had to get off the Ipad and back on the old desk top. These are the SVT-40 pics. Let me know if there is a diff. pic you want to see and I will try and get a shot. The mag release on it is neat how it fold up. Looks like the stock and bolt #s match but the magazine has a diff. # on it.

    That's quite a haul. Glad to see it stayed in the family.

    OK the SVT-40 is a 1941 Ishevsk. The bolt is a purplish color. It's a refurb bolt. I've been studying all day on this thing. And feel like I don't know ****. Do you guys shoot yours or just keep it in the safe???

    I don't have one, but it would be tough not to shoot it. Sounds like the stocks take a beating though.
