Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I believe that's also an SVT-40, rotated onto its side so we are seeing the cleaning rod that runs below the barrel.

I will take a photo of my SVT in that position.

The photo looks weird due to the left mans rifle has a bent/broken off cleaning rod. The rod appears to be outside of the bayonet/retaining lug and wedged against the same.
