Mosin Nagant - Model 1891/30
Hungarian Model 48.M
Date: 1951
Serial No CF4563

Very Good Condition

In 1930 updates to the Dragoon were adopted and the "new" rifle was designated the "7,62 mm Rifle, Model of the Year 1891-30",
more commonly known as the M91/30.

After WWII the Soviet Union shared much of its weapons technology with its satellite countries, including the Mosin rifles and carbines. Hungarian M44 carbines are common, but the Hungarian M91/30 is not as well known.

The Hungarian M91/30 follows the same basic pattern as the Soviet M91/30 with few differences.
The barrel markings are "02", which is the country code for Hungary, the date, the Hungarian crest, and the serial number.
The dates are in the early 1950s

The Hungarian M1891/30 were manufactured and referred to in Hungary as Puska 48.M (48 Minta).

50,686 were manufactured by Femaru Fegyver es Gepgyar (FEG), Budapest, between 1949-55


*** Note: The correct Variation for a Mosin Nagant is "7.62" or "7.62x54". A variation for a "7.62/308" is Not Valid For Mosin Nagants ***
