Thread: Mosin Nagant & Mauser Rifles

    Question Mosin Nagant & Mauser Rifles

    How many fans of Mosin Nagant & Mauser rifles are out there? I have a few, I posted in the collectors forum. I really like these old military rifles. I can't possibly be alone here, can I?

    They are reasonable in price (if you don't want collector grade) and just an absolute joy shoot.

    I do not own either, have been looking at a Mosin thru J&G sales for $79.00. With a C&R can have shipped direct to me.
    If any of you have seen the comical comparison of an AR, an AK and a mosin..... With an AR you can hit an individual nail on the barn door, with an AK you can hit the barn, with a Mosin you can knock the barn down from 2 counties away....lots of firepower!

    I want one! ( I seem to say that about lots of guns tho...).

    I have Mosin carbine and a pre-war Czech 98/22. You can see them in my article, Metal, Wood and Cordite.

    I have owned a Nagant but sold it due to not using it and wasn't really a rifle I liked so it was better off going to someone who would want it. I will say it was highly accurate.

    The Mosin in fun to shoot, but it reminds me of the saying, "It kills from one end and maimes from the other." Beats me up everytime I shoot. Of course you don't notice recoil in battle.

    Yes, the accuracy is nice.

    For me the history of it is also a factor. Sometimes when I hold them, I wonder if the wooden stock could speak, what type of stories it could tell. The story of the men that have held it, and whether or not it saw actual combat action at any point. Each one of those old beauty's has a story behind it. The mystery is intriguing. It adds to the appeal for me.

    The historical element is what really appeals to me. With some research you can determine the location and approximate date of manufacture of these old historic guns. Under the butt plate on my K31 Swiss there was a card with the name of the soldier the rifle had been issued to, written in his own hand. Apparently this is a common practice for the Swiss. So, if you have a K31 or any Swiss rifle it wouldn't hurt to take a look.

    I read an article in one of my gunzines last month about a man who bought a M-1 Garand for his father, who had carried one in the service ( I can't recall which war). The M1 he finally found and purchased was the exact same rifle his father had carried. Talk about good fortune.

    Everytime I pick up one of my rifles I wonder about the history it holds, who else carried it, was it used in combat?

    I have the British, the Germans (although a Czech model), and the Russians represented in my collection. I still need the U.S. (M-1 Garand or 03 Springfield, hopefully), and a Japanese rifle. I might even throw in a Carcano from Italy.
