Scarce desirable Russian World War II PTR-D single shot anti-tank rifle. As were so many of the anti-tank weapons in use at the beginning of World War II, this one was effective against the tanks and armored cars of the late 1920’s and 1930’s, but were soon found to be ineffective against the more modern armor being fielded in ever greater numbers. It is a straightforward enlarged bolt action rifle with only two locking lugs at either side of the large bolt which has a large hook to enable manual cocking if desired. This rifle cocks upon bolt closure otherwise. Serial number and date (1943) at top rear of receiver with non-matching number on barrel. No bipod present. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is fair to good original finish turned brown and otherwise thinning to expose gray patina. Wood furnishings condition is consistent and worn yet completely serviceable. Cheek piece canvas cover starting to fray and split but also remains serviceable. Mechanics are fine. Bore is dark and uncleaned (imagine the cleaning rod you would need), but with the ammunition being so scarce this item is primarily a collectors item and a very relevant one for someone who desires a collection of Destructive Devices from the major major powers of World War II. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS FULLY TRANSFERABLE ON AN ATF FORM 3 OR 4 AS A “DESTRUCTIVE DEVICE”. JWK 2019-10-52.
