Default Just picked up an SVT

Just got an SVT from my local gun shop today. Seems like a really well built gun. Can't wait to go try it out.

Any suggestions on bullet weight? 148gr? Higher?

I usually shoot 174 grain bullets out of mine. They are the same loads I use for my PSL54C. Is it just me or has the stock been refinished? Mine has got a much redder hue to the finish.

lighter loads are usually recommended. I've heard of stocks split, not mine, not yet.

you tune your gas port settings to your preference. Which would be not beating the gun up with too much gas.

have the gas port key?

No gas key, just ordered a buttplate, cleaning rod and correct sling. Guess I will hunt down the gas tool, too!

Thanks! I will check that out. Looks like it is set to 1.3 right now. Think I'll take her out and see if she cycles some 148gr Wolf.

Watch the gas rod, they have a habit of going through the back of the top cover, stopping in the middle of the shooters head.
The Finn's found that to be troublesome.
I stopped shooting my registered C&R AVT [and AVS] for this reason.
Take a close look at the safety and the trigger pack, see if you can tell the difference between an SVT and an AVT.

That's mine. I just used it for reference. I was talking about the brown look that is on the OP's rifle. It could very well be the original finish and even if the stock was refinished, it obviously won't affect the rifles' function. I was mostly just curious.

It does, a little, compared to the top hand guard.

But the stock proofs are sharp.

Oleg @ akstuff.com might have a couple of original PU SVT scopes. They are slightly different from Mosin PU scopes.

That's a new one for me. Any more information on what causes this type of failure or what to look for? Just looking at the rifle its hard to see how this could happen.

yeah, happened to me, rod flew right into my eye, luckily i was wearing glasses. problem is with piston rod extension is getting stuck in the receiver, on the next shot piston rod is not connected to it and free to go, i think this is what happened. all should be cleaned, lightly oiled and springs shoudl have no kinks

The stock finish looks arsenal refurbished, as it should. That is one of the rare scope mounts that mimiced the original mount's look, but did not require the rear scope cut, IIRC.
