Earlier we produced an episode on TFB TV about the Soviet SVT-40 semi-automatic rifle. In this episode, we examine the disassembly and assembly aspects of that same rifle. As mentioned earlier, the SVT-40 incorporated a number of very advanced features for its time such as a removable 10 round magazine, gas operated semi-automatic system, and a very simplistic but not so intrinsic method of field stripping. This was perhaps a downfall among the millions of Soviet conscripts coming into the Red Army during the Second World War, when taking apart the standard issue Mosin Nagant was just a trigger press and bolt throw away from a complete field strip.
