Default 1942 SVT 40 For Review

I have a 1942 Tula SVT 40 re-arsenaled for review. Everything is matching with electro pencil and sling is original as far as I know. The seller is asking for $1500 including the bayonet. Do you guys think I should add it to my collection? Thank you everyone for your help. I love this forum.

That price almost triples what I paid for mine in Europe 3 or 4 years ago. As you mentioned, it has been refurbished...

The bayonet is worth more than the rifle.

Bayonet is refurbished as well
I think that 1500 is a bit too much for a refurbished SVT40. Not really much in collector value, but most likely a great shooter. For a collector piece I would look for older Finn import. Almost all are imports, but they are in unrefurbished original condition.

A little bit on the high side IMHO.

$1500 is a great deal with the Bayonet I've owned a store for almost ten years I'm an 07 Manufacturer with my SOT I've sold numerous SVTs for 1800-2000 the ticket on those are just going up. Refurb or not the average Joe doesn't seem to care unless its refinished.

Thank you everyone for your help! I agree with your points and I'm going to save up for a Finn capture or an all matching.
