RUSSIAN SVD 1938 SNIPER RIFLE. SN AP1767. Cal. 7.62 x 54. This is the very rare Russian semi auto sniper rifle with the telescope, scope cover, sling, and bayonet. Scope mount, though American, appears to be production for this rifle in fit and finish. I find the use of the M82 telescope to be an interesting variant.
