    My SVT bayonet was found on the 'net. Sportsman's Guide or someplace kinda oddball like that. They had them for a very short time six or seven years ago. Can't remember just how much it cost, but it was the best price I'd seen until then. Wish I'd bought two, they've just gone up since.
    A word of warning: The only way to avoid the second and third Mosin-Nagant is to avoid the first Mosin-Nagant.
    BTW, the info about supposed Kovrov production is intriguing. As soon as you think you know a little about something, new information turns up. Which is good. It keeps things interesting.

    Dang it. I just knew you had a couple laying in an old shoe box you wanted to cut me a deal on. I checked sportsmanship guide all they had was the scope mounts. Thanks though.

    Man that's a cool looking rifle! I wish I could stumble onto one of those. But then, I want an M44, a K98k, and a Vz52, and on and on. Excellent pick up there.

    What is this new information that suggests Kovrov didn't make SVTs?

    I was surprised, so I googled the matter. There's some discussion on surplusrifles and a couple other forums; one fellow from the Ukraine insists the arrow in oval mark is that of Factory No. 460 at Podolsk, not Kovrov. The latter's mark is similar, but the ID was erroneous. Vic Thomas seems to be on board with this, so I'd say it's kosher.

    Huh. I did the same and I guess I'll have to stop calling my SVT a "Kovrov".

    Unfortunately, "Podolsk" doesn't quite roll off the tongue as nicely...

    How about calling it a "Factory No. 460"? :D

    That pic is awesome!! And that guy has a lot of cool stuff. Man the bayonet and scope are nice. I also like the blued bolt. My purple looking bolt kinda bugs me. It just doesn't look right to me.

    The plum bolt is normal. Alot of them are like that. I wouldnt worry about it.
