Mosin-Nagant Rifle (Vintovka Mosina)
The Mosin Nagant rifle describes a series of rifles that served Russia (and later the Soviet Union) and its client states for many years. The first model was released for the Imperial Russian Army. It is one of the longest serving bolt action rifles in history, being produced until the 1940s and still being used in wars and armed civil rebellions.Over 37 million units of Vintovka Mosina were produced since its conception, and in spite of its age it has shown up in various conflicts around the world even up to the modern day, being plentiful, cheap, rugged, simple to use, and effective, much like the AK-47 and its variants.
