Mosin Nagant Identification

    Default Mosin Nagant Identification

    Hi guys - I've been fortunate to aquire a 1942 Mosin Nagant - Armoury refurbished and all matching numbers. Given my fascination with all things military I was wondering if anyone can tell by the reciever stamps (pictured) where it was made, and how close to Stalingrad the factory may have been.



    She's like new, very accurate, came with cleaning kit, bayonet and two packs of ammo for a very reasonable price.

    and yes........I watch 'Enemy At The Gates' on a regular basis )

    the star is for tula. the arrow in the triangle was for ishevsk, yours is an ishevsk m91/30. ishevsk mosins are the most common, and ishevsk was a bit far back from stalingrad. the russians liked to build factories far behind the front so that there wouldnt be the risk of it being captured/destroyed. it doesnt mean that it wasnt used there of course, in fact theres a good chance of that it was. i personally have a 1944 m91/30 and a 1944 m44, both from ishevsk. theyre great rifles and yours is in excellent condition.

    nice rifle : )

    Hello-if you're keen on the Mosin Nagant I would recommend 'The Mosin-Nagant Rifle' by Terrence Lapin-a great reference book full of info on markings and the different variants and quite cheap too! I have 3 Mosins (M1890, Dragoon & M1944 Polish carbine) as well as a Finnish M1939 the 'King of the heap ' as far as accuracy and build quality are concerned.

    Hi Chris

    Nice Mosin! Im fairly sure the square with the vertical line stamp on the reciever denotes that, as you stated, its arsenal refurbished. Same with the square with a diagonal on the stock! although I dont know why they are different.

    Cheers

    Until now I’ve been more than happy to lurk in the background of these forums, soaking up knowledge like a sponge and joining in with a comment or two when my very limited experience with firearms saw an opportunity to help another. The feedback I’ve received for my new/old rifle, (incidentally, on my first ever thread) has just about blown me away and is testament to the spontaneous and unconditional friendship members of this web-site show to newbie’s and wannabie’s like myself. It is a pleasure, and an honor to be counted as one of you. Thank you for your help

    Hi Chris, I am glad you got the info you wanted and that you are enjoying being part of the forum. Always nice to hear..

    Nice clean rifle

    It is certainly worth you picking up the book recommended. I can endorse it too.

    The difference in the arsenal rebuild stamps mentioned by Reg is down to one being used on stocks/woodwork while the other is used on the metalwork.

    Cheers, Ade.
