An Extremely Brief History of the Mosin Nagant
The Mosin Nagant is a bolt-action, military rifle dating back to the late 1800s. After the Russo-Turk War led the Russian military to rethink their in-service firearms (then mostly Berdan single-shot rifles) the military selected a new rifle to issue to its troops. After much refinement and deliberation, a rifle known as the Mosin Nagant emerged victorious – an amalgam of Sergei Ivanovich Mosin’s 3-line rifle and Leon Nagant’s 3.5-line rifle. Over the years, scores of variations have been produced. Since I’m no historian, you’ll have to do some research of your own if you want further information.
