    Never really collected Nagants have had a few that one looks like one built under the Czar in 1913 according to the receiver stamp and has the old Three liner site this would be a historic rifle IMO built before 1917 red revolution if it could talk. Nice rifle. timothy

    No where near an expert on mosins but have a question/observation. What is the "SA" marking? Does that not typically indicate Finnish usage?

    Just an observation

    I remember posting a different mosin on here and someone did indeed say that the SA marking indicated finnish usage.

    I posted a carcano a few months back with the SA. Not sure if having it on this mosin has any negative bearing on the Cossack connection but just thought I'd point it out.

    And yes Timothy, i agree, the Finns were very prolific in using captured/surplus materials

    I don't think so, The rifle was originally a Cossack rifle as indicated by the KA3 stamp. Then somehow, it was either captured or acquired in some way by the Finns, who then refurbished some of the parts. Though, correct me if I'm wrong. =)

    Yeah! It also doesn't have an import stamp on it. I wonder how it got all the way over to the states?
