Mosin Nagant Sling
One of the most important accessories for your Mosin Nagant rifle is a quality sling. With the impressive weight and recoil of the Mosin Nagant M91/30, shooting with a sling will greatly help in controlling the recoil and keeping your rifle on target. Most original slings for the Mosin Nagant are over 50 years old, and have seen quite a bit of use over their lifetime. Why subject your original historic sling to use and abuse at the range when you can easily substitute it with this high quality reproduction "dog-collar" sling?
Each Mosin Nagant Sling consists of a tough, webbed canvas strap that is comfortable yet refuses to compromise durability. They measure approximately 1.5 inches wide and include the original “dog collar-style” leather attachment straps. The slings are fully adjustable and each one is in factory new condition.
These Mosin Nagant slings are two-point slings, an old design that features two attachment points and utilizes the two sling mounts found on the rifle (below the barrel and in the butt stock). When attached, two-point slings allow a shooter to carry a rifle over one shoulder or across the back – freeing the hands and making transport much easier.
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.
