SVT-40 Body Kits by Shockwave9001 SVT-40 Body Kits by Shockwave9001
I got a job offer from a proud owner of an original WW2 SVT-40. He isn't a purist, and wanted to give his SVT a new and modern look. He asked me to design 5 different versions. I went with different styles for him to choose from.

I know the quality isn't up to par with my regular work, but that's simply because these are rough concepts for him to choose from. The next step is that he picks his favorite and I'll proceed from there on.

Well, I hate to be "that guys"; but there honestly isn't a market for SVT modification, SKS modification? Yes, SVT modification? No. SVT's are unicorn guns, and most folks want em' as original as physically possible.

Which is exactly why this man asked me to design some kits for his SVT; because there aren't that many.

Your "subpar" is still fantastic.
Now we just need a kit for the G41, the G43, the M1 Garand, the M1 Carbine, the STG44, the MKB42, the STG45, the (trails on forever with an endless list of oddly specific WWII guns).
Either way, this is awesome.

SVT was a great rifle but expensive back in WW2, looks great modernized, I wish the Russians did something to the SVT like US did with the MK 14 EBR

If I was him, I'd request a combination of 3's receiver/underbarrel/magazine well and enlarged handguard, with 1's trigger grip with a combination of their buttstocks. Beautiful work.

They're in 7.62x54R, as the core rifle itself hasn't been changed.

I didn't spot it on FB but I just noticed the M16 rear sight you used for the 3rd rifle's magazine release. Very nice part usage!
