Treetop64: Lol. Your dad is kinda extreme, isn't he. :)
Great series, BTW. I'm in the market for a WWII era bolt action - haven't
decided which yet, but can only get one for now. Your vids are a source of
dustysquito .: Dang, this was a very nice series you put together here. It shows that you
took a good amount of time to think through what you were going to say, and
that makes it really easy to watch.
GEIST Nineteen: How bad is the kick of the rifle? i'm a beginner so.. I don't really like
the kick after firing certain rifles. I fired an M1 Garand and that thing
had a kick. Nice bruise mark from it. Wondering if this will do the same?
GEIST Nineteen: Amazing videos. I'm getting my Mosin on Friday and I had a question. Under
the gun where the bullets fall out, can you equip a cartridge to hold 10 or
so rounds or no?
How to get it done.: your dad sounds like a pickle
Donovan Barry: The song used in the beginning is "The Sacred War", sounds like the Red
Army Choir version.
Bojan Milankovic: Correction for you - you cannot attach a bayonet to an M38 carbine.
zhukie: I think all Mosin bolts have that loose 'play' you're describing. All mine
from a 1916 New England Westinghouse to the wartime 1943 Izhevsk (and the
couple of M44s) do. Think of a Kalashikov, there's a lot of leeway and wide
tolerances there too. Remember that swapping of parts (which the Finns did
much of, with their Russian-captured Mosins) necessitates wide tolerances
and also that they were turned out in industrial quantities (17.5 million
is the figure often quoted) where often volume meant far more than
meticulously engineered parts. Its a peasant & workers' weapon and was
never designed to be a tight target rifle.
Misterm Smith: I love it !Thanks great music and review, just beautiful. Long live
ciaran mcelhinney: can anyone please tell me how to get any spent casings for the rifle or
drill style rounds for show for safe loading and unloading
Malcolm X: Good video Tovarich! For future reference you don't pronounce it CO-SACK,
it's said CAW-SACK, like a bird caw. The first Mosin's were produced at
Izhevsk and Tula, however large scale mass production took place first at
the French arsenal Chatellerault. The "hex" receiver's are not really
octagonal or hexagonal, they are an irregular shape when observed outside
the stock. M38's cannot accept bayonets, and M44's were designed to replace
the M91/30 and were made for frontline use. Great review!
Dezerado: your dad sounds like a wiener lol
Malcolm X: @something01992 Everyone makes a few minor errors when attempting to tackle
the beast that is the history of the Mosin Nagant rifle series. This is
definitely one of the best vids on the Mosin Nagant's history on youtube. I
really like the pics and music at the beginning of your Mosin reviews!
nick21sammy: KA3 in the russian writing is KAZ
lthilsdorf: Actually, early M91's did have sling swivels on the forward barrel band and
magazine. Dragoon's and Cossack rifles always had the standard sling slots.
I actually have one of those pre-1908 updated M91's that was captured by
the Austrians in World War I. It even has the pre-1908 era rear sight,
which is extremely rare. Anyway, good video!
theotherhomer: Good video, and congrats on winning kiwiteds contest :D. Be sure to get
ahold of a M38, M44 and the other variations. The shaking of parts and the
bolt in the rifle is normal, all of mine do it. It's meant to be a 'loose'
rifle if I remember correctly
Skidin Dingo: those mill marks may have been left there to provide a good surface for
soldiers to strike matches?
Teleoceras: @something01992 This is the model that was made at Izhevsk until the early
part of WWI. While rare, you can find them if you are lucky. A few days ago
on the 7.62x54r forum, one fellow had bought one that was bubba'ed with the
stock cut down, but otherwise still intact with it's original parts.
Charles' Milsurp Firearms: @theotherhomer I would love to get an M38/M44 but I don't have enough cash!
I'm sure you know the feeling.
Charles' Milsurp Firearms: @coulter36360 The 91/59 was still in 7.62x54mmR, I have not heard of any
Mosin Nagants in 7.62x39mm.
Charles valleyviewmontvale: Excellent videos. Well done and very informative. I learned a lot about the
Mosin Nagant 91/30. Keep up the good work.
TaZ101SAGA: This is the supreme bolt action rifle for freezing temperatures. I like how
they designed most of it's features to still be accessible by a gloved
operator. The straight bolt with large ball, larger trigger guard. Large
circular roostering piece so the safety could be operated with gloves,
personally I never found it that easy but that could just be me. Great
rifle, these will be around long after we've all turned to dust.
75thRangers: There are Polish varients that fire 7.92x57 but they are not as
common.There are also Finnish varients chambered in 7.62x53R , but the
Russian weapons in 7.62x54R is more popular and prominent because more were
made and was a common cartridge.
75thRangers: The 91/59 had no sight notche above 1'000 meters because it shot the
7.62x39 instead of a 7.62x54 catridge.It was an experimental rifle but they
the project because it was impractical when they had th AK47.
Germanikus86: Nice Video! I think I will purchase one 91/30.
Psygho77: Yore wrong. The mosin m95 has NEVER came out with 39mm, oly in 53mm I own
one of these.. The're are diverse storys abaut the 59 nagant. It's an
modified gun, based (most) on the 91/30 (wich i own) And schoots more
accurate. Kicks even more , and is louder than an m44. Wich i own too. Its
an converted to an caribine, so the milled the sights off. Its just an
shorter barrel 91/30. And is well reworked, and blued. Trigger is
Volkov556: This is a great review man, thanks alot!
clangerbasher: Nice videos.
Segundo Jumbo: freak..!! full speaking..
TheTokkin: dunno about Germans, but Finnish soldiers discarded Finnish manufactured
bolts whenever they could. Since Finns were using Mosin-nagant rifles
themselves and acquired many Russian weapons as loot, it was popular to
just grab a Russian bolt because it was built to loser tolerances and
wouldn't get sticky. Given this, its not implausible that the Germans would
use Mosins at times (of course they had no logistics for such weapons, so
getting ammo would have been difficult.)
twforster15: What song are you using?
Usagi Sensei: Could you please explain why your dad chaced you with a beyonet? Does he
not like guns?
Gungeek: Is your Dad a bit crazy lol?
nick21sammy: dragoons are mounted footsoldiers not cavalry. they rode to the battle,
dismounted and fought like regular troops
Teleoceras: Nice video, but you didn't mention the Tsarist era M1907 Carbine of which
about 344,000 were built.
20thcenturyfilmdocs: Yes, the tolerances on these guns are deliberately looser than what you
would encounter on, say, a K98 Mauser, or Springfield 1903. Allows for
manufacturering/machining process to not have to be as precise, and given
their very big extremes in temperatures in Russia, it probably even helps
keep their guns from freezing/jamming, etc.
silver2478: Your father hooked up a real bayonet to a real rifle and chased you with
it? You must love him :)
Willy Pete: I got a Izzy for xmas last year 1931 with laminated stock, and hex receievr
i liked it so much i bought a second izzy same year and hex receiver. they
are awesome. they were purchased from dunhams they seem to get alot fo the
31 hex recievers
Charles' Milsurp Firearms: He took the bayonet out of the cardboard box and chased me with it. I after
about 15 seconds of running away, turned around and he swung the damn thing
at me and I held up the rifle to take the blow and he struck the hand guard.
Charles' Milsurp Firearms: @Gungeek He's a first class, Grade A, nut job lol.
clangerbasher: Yes he did. But actually his pronunciation was spot on. If your accent is
good it should sound more like coo-socks than co-sacks.
TeHGoodReverend: Does your dad hate guns? :(
Charles' Milsurp Firearms: @Teleoceras I did hear of a 1907 carbine made by the St. Petersburg
Artillery School. I heard only a handful were actually built and that
they're all museum pieces that would never be encountered by the average
Ma Cid: whata jerk
TaZ101SAGA: Also because loose tolerances are better in freezing conditions.
Charles' Milsurp Firearms: @citizensnips83 The Mauser has a loose bolt when it is retracted as well. I
don't believe any of those stories of Germans abandoning their Mausers for
Mosin Nagants. I haven't encountered any literature where it mentioned
Germans abandoning their rifles. Sure, they might of froze up day one of
the winter campaign, but soldiers learn quick.
Charles' Milsurp Firearms: @lthilsdorf Thanks! I got a lot of conflicting information during my
research. I just used 7.62x54.net because that seemed to be the one
everyone used as their source.
Charles' Milsurp Firearms: @cwbyfan223 Ah, thank you for the corrections. I knew I was bound to get
some things wrong. I'll add these corrections in via annotation.
random5306 .: Why did the get rid of the 3 prong sight
klesmer: You only have one? Obviously you haven't been infected yet. It will come
