designed by Sergei Simonov in 1938, the PTRS (Simonov Anti-Tank Rifle) uses the same 14.5mm round as the PTRD bolt-action anti-tank gun, but with a magazine fed semi-automatic action. While the PTRS fell to the wayside, both due to the ease of manufacture of the PTRD and the growing thickness of Nazi tank armor, it found a second life in the form of the SKS semi-automatic rifle, which took the PTRS action and scaled it down to the 7.62mm cartridge. Fitted with a disc-shaped muzzle brake, hooded pin front and tangent rear sight, swiveling bipod and carrying handle. The receiver is fitted with a bottom-opening integral magazine, a smooth pistol grip, and a club foot buttstock with multi-layered recoil pad.
Fine overall, showing a mixed brown patina and mild spotting and handling marks overall. The pistol grip is good, with some dings, and the buttstock is fair, loose in the socket with some crushing of the recoil pad. Mechanically very good.
