#2 Weapons trivia: Semi-automatic Rifles held by soldats of the Grat Patriotic War are SVT-40's, cal 7.62x54. Plagued by a rather complex field stripping procedure (lots of little pieces), many were found abandoned on the Eastern Front sticking out of the snow, muzzle or bayonet first.

SVT-40 in what we used to refer to as "NRA Fine" ... $ 1400 - $2100. (no import stamp, even more). Add another $1000 for an original scoped variant. Buyer beware, this weapon is closely monitored by the ATF due to it's ease in conversion to full-auto.

#3 Nothing mars the finish of a good peace like fighting. Worse than black heel marks on the linoleum.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
