Tula Factory
Date: 1933

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. Many rifles dated prior to 1930 are found in M91/30 configuration but retain the original markings on the barrel shank with dates prior to 1930. This is from programs, primarily post WWII, to update older rifles by the Soviets and they are known among collectors as "ex-dragoons".

This is a nice example of a Mosin Nagant Rifle Dating from 1933


*** 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 ***
