    A real crank bolt Mosin Nagant sniper?...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Great pics!

    Nice backdrop.

    The rifle is a 1943 Tula sniper, the pistol a 1931 Tula Nagant. I figured I might as well get some use out of the snow so I took 10 minutes and threw this together. The ammo in the crate is '60s Soviet 7.62X54r with a few boxes of Nagant ammo thrown in. The backpack is a later-made veschmeshok
