Mosin Nagant M 91/38

Postby Dutch Mosin » Sun Mar 23, 2014 2:43 pm

Hello all.

Check this out.
Bought this last Friday in Germany.
It's an all matching Mosin Nagant M91/38.
It used to be a 1905 Izhevsk M91.
It was cut down to carbine specifications by the Czechs.
I made a couple of pictures today.
Not of the best quality, but it is all I have for now.

More and better quality pictures later this week.

That is an awesome find there Martin, The stamping is very interesting. Still has the imperial crest which means it was out of Russian hands for sometime. The stock looks fantastic, some very nice arctic birch. Congratulations

Thanks for your replies and yes.....it doesn't look bad for a 1905 cut down rifle.
Even up close the wood looks great.
Had some time to take more pictures.
I'm extremely happy with this one.
It makes the carbine / cut down rifle part of my collection more complete.
The numbers on this weapons all match (force matched on the bolt body) and almost all parts have the same manufacturer stamp being pre 1928 Izhevsk.
Only the bolt head has has the post 1928 Izhevsk stamp and the magazine body has the R in a shield stamp.
This means that the magazine body was manufactured by either Rouart or Ravasse for Chatellerault in France.

I like it Martin! It looks to be in great shape, with an interesting history. It sure has seen a lot of history first hand from the day it left the original armory.
