Season One Edit
The Long Shot Edit
The SVT-40 was used during "The Long Shot", which was the first episode of Season One. The rifle was part of the first Team Challenge, along with three other weapons: the M1903 Springfield, the M14, and the Mosin-Nagant. The weapons were introduced during the Practice Session, where expert Craig Sawyer trained them in the use of all four.
When the Team Challenge came, contestants were supposed to go through a series of stations and shoot targets at 50 and 100 yards. The SVT-40 was to be used at the second station, after crossing through a thicket of brush. Caleb Giddings and Blake Miguez, from the Blue Team, successfully hit their targets, while the Red Team never got to the second station.
Season Finale Edit
The SVT-40 was brought back for the Season Finale.
Season Five Edit
The SVT-40 was brought back for one of the challenges of the Season Five finale: "Last Man Standing", along with the Heckler & Koch HK93, the Glock 19, and the Mosin-Nagant. In it, the marksmen had to run uphill to a series of 4 elevated platforms, using a different weapon to shoot a target at a certain distance. On the fourth and final platform, shooters had to use the SVT-40 to shoot a target at 150 yards.
It was used again during the Final Challenge where marksmen had to shoot an exploding target at 150 yards.
