Score!! found an SVT 40 today. Mine, Mine, Mine! guy had it on guns America, but the picture he had up had no mag in the rifle, so I called him as soon as he opened and asked about it. In luck he had the mag!had the tools to adjust the gas port to.The price was to good to say no. And he held it for me to look at till I got off work. 8 other people had called him about it in that time. Cant wait to shoot it.

Very nice :grin:
Did you get the bayonet too?
How much are you paying? They go gor 400 over here without bayo.
The gas regulater tool will come in handy, once you get that right it will shoot like a dream, believe me.

They get $600 and up here. normally I don't see them very often and they are $800 or more when you find them. I had the bayonet already.It really wanted a rifle to go with it.

These are real fun to shoot and generally very accurate too. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Nice looking refurb. I actually traded mine off recently. For some reason everytime I fire the thing it is like getting socked in the jaw :box

I did keep a Finn Capture though just for collecting purposes. The Finn has the original semi stock, not the replacement AVT stock. I haven't fired it to see if this would make a difference in the Jaw-bone though.
