The Mosin-Nagant 762 x 54R


The Mosin-Nagant 762 x 54R

On March 22 and 23, GTGS was in Titusville for "The Titusville Gun Show". I always enjoy coming to Titusville. The Rock Shrimp are always scrumptious. I enjoyed many Space Shuttle launches over the years there. Thanks to the current administration that program was shut down and now we have to hitch a ride with Russia to the space station. Speaking of Russia the weapon I chose this week comes from Mother Russia. Wandering around the show I spotted a Mosin-Nagant that had been Sporterized. While not a firearm I normally look at, the $100 dollar price tag got me thinking. Are the Mosin's the last of the great surplus bargains to be had? I am still pissed off at old Slick Willy and his Executive Order in 1994 that stopped the importation of the SKS and Chinese Ammo. The current President stopped thousands of M1 Garand's and M1 Carbines from coming back from Korea recently as well.

The Mosin-Nagant was designed in 1891 after the Russians, during the Russo-Ottoman War of 1877-1878, got their tales handed to them by the Turks in the form of heavy casualties. The Russians were armed with single shot Berdan rifles while the Turks had Winchester Repeaters. Maybe Mother Russia should have paid attention to the fate of General Custer! The Mosin-Nagant is a bolt action rifle that fires a 762x54R Cartridge. It was also made in 762x53R, 792x57 Mauser and 8x50 Mannlicher. Read More...
