    Default Tokarev SVT-40 Rifle...

    Are there any parts sources for the Tokarev SVT-40 besides Numrich GPC and SARCO ??? I have both their listings but am looking for more small parts for my SVT-40 shortie project.

    Has anyone adapted an SVD mag or similar to their Tokarev rifle ???

    Thanks,
    VD

    Hello daknee_k.
    Thanks for the link. It seems that the parts are drying up big time. The mags are out of $ight !!!

    You are going to molest a SVT-40? Hopefully there is something wrong with the barrell that you are fixing.

    Hello 00red-ZX-6R,
    The SVT-40 was a "kit" found at a gunshow for $12.oo about 20+ years ago. The kit consised of a barrelled stripped receiver. The bore is rather toasty. I bought major needed parts back then at the old pricing. I also got a fresh walnut military stock made for it back then (fortunately). Broken old SVT-40 stocks today command $200.oo.

    When completed the shortie will resemble the one in the Brit Enfield Patternroom Collection, I hope. The shortie will reside on my dinner table once I complete the small lathe resto project sitting there presently.

    I'll try to post a picture of the original Soviet SVT-40 carbine variant.

    Here (I hope) are a couple SVT-40 shortie carbine pictures from a Russian web site. Some of these shorties were factory built and some were field mods from full-length SVT-40's during WW-II. They resemble an SKS on steroids.

    As a youngster I had a well-used SVT-40 from Finland captured in WW-II. It cost big bux of $35.oo in those days (1960). My good friend got one given to him with a broken stock and some missing parts. I helped him restore his SVT-40 and get him interested in gun collecting. He retired as a full Colonel from the USAF, a medical doctor, and Star Wars scientist. He may yet have that "free Tokarev".

    Some people have modded PSL mags to fit, but SVD mags are expensive as hell so I wouldn't mod them... You have to grind the ribs off the sides, or flatten them out.

    Hello 486,
    Later after I posted, my nephew dropped off a box of my missing SVT-40 parts I hadn't seen for years. Included was a mint condition original Tokarev 10 rd box mag !!!

    Thanks for the tip about the SVD and PSL box mags. I believe that I'll get a couple Lahti-Saloranta 20 rd box mags and blacksmith them to work in the SVT-40 shortie.

    Yes, 00redZX-6R I'm trying to re-create a variant SVT-40 carbine such as the rare WW-II model from bits and crumbs.
