History of Mosin Nagant
Mosin Nagant was used variously in the world, especially in Russia. After felt down by Turks armed with the Winchester repeating rifles, Russian Army made the decision to modernize its weaponry. They test magazine fed rifles which were three rifles including 3 line caliber rifle form Mosin and 3,5 line design by Nagant.
The combination of Nagant and Mosin designs was developed for the Army of Russia and designed the 3 line rifle model 1891. There were many exchanges and compromises between 2 of these designs you can see on Model of 1891. In the Mosin’s original, the magazine spring was not stuck to the base plate so it was easy to be lost during cleaning. While the Nagant is more practical in which the magazine spring was attached to the base plate. One more interesting thing, the Nagant’s designs lacked the interrupter to keep 2 cartridges from being loaded that could cause frequent feed failures. This is the reason why they took the Mosin’s interrupter and the different feed mechanism design to the combined model 1891.
After a long time, they produced the model 1891/30 which was redesigned from the old one Model 1891. The interrupter was changed more drastically because it was considered as the unreliable piece of the rifle.
The Mosin-Nagant was used popularly in the World war 2. In the following part, you are going to see the difference in prices among the various types of Mosin Nagant.
