Mosin Nagant | price $119.00+/-
mosin nagant

The Mosin Nagant was Russia's standard issue rifle chambered in 7.62x54R. They began production in 1891 and over the years more than 37 million have been made. Because of the abundance of these rifles you can scoop them up for pretty cheap. They actually are very reliable, and pretty accurate for a rifle of its age. These rifles are a bit heavy and cetainly can take a bit of abuse. There a many variations, 91/30 being the most common. For a rifle with a good chambering, reliability, decent accuracy, and just plain fun to shoot, you can not beat the Mosin Nagant.

These rifles feature a 5 round top fed magazine. Most will come with bayonet, oil can, cleaning rod and sling. The Finn models or model 39 are among the better of the Nagant. There are a few different stocks also available if you should feel the need to "sporterize" your rifle to look more of a modern day sniper rifle. Many believe that these rifles should remain untouched because of their history and use in war, but lets be real here. There are 37 million of these, and they work wonderfull. Why not update and continue to use them. They are just to much fun to hang on the wall.
