We can’t feature second hand guns without eventually running across a Mosin-Nagant rifle. Why? Because they made about 37 million of them (37,000,000).
What particularly drew my attention to this example was the combination of Hex Receiver, bayonet, early date of production, and overall good condition. Although I am sure it was arsenal refinished at some point in it’s life before being put in storage.
Here are the key details:
- 91/30 Mosin-Nagant.
- Manufactured by Tula.
- Year of manufacturer – 1927
- Caliber 7.62x54R
- Spike bayonet included.
I understand Mosin’s don’t float the boats of too many collectors. But personally, as a student of history, I find the 1927 manufacture date compelling.
To my way of thinking, most Mosin-Nagant rifles were made in the run-up to WWII or during the war proper. This rifle predates the 1939 Invasion of Poland. It pre-dates the stock-market crash of 1929, FDR, The Empire State Building, The Dust Bowl, The Hindenburg Crash, Amelia Earhart, The Hoover Dam and the Golden Gate Bridge. And many, many other significant dates I am forgetting. In short, this is an old Mosin.
Maybe I need to buy it myself?
