Mosin Nagant - Model 1891/30
Izhevsk Factory
Date: 1943
Serial No OA2059
£1000

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.

Changes included the front and rear sights and split barrel bands. Hexagonal receivers were phased out and replaced with round receivers in 1935 and 1936 respectively at Izhevsk and Tula, the two arsenals which produced the 91/30.

M91/30s were used as the basis for sniper rifles from the mid-'30s with several types of mounts and scopes. The most commonly encountered today is the PU which was adopted in 1942 and uses a side rail mount.

This is the PU Variant

I beleive this is a composed sniper rifle using one of the PU scopes made by Izyum Optic Mechanical Plant in Ukraine and proably set up in this configuration in Ukraine.

Comes fitted with sling, cleaning rod and leather scope covers & canvas action cover


*** 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 ***
