#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.
