Most of us prefer 98 Mausers to the Russian M91/30 Mosin-Nagant, but the Mosin won in the Red Army’s hands against the Nazis with their Mausers. From Ukrainian Government arsenals comes this very attractive specimen of the WWII Red Army’s principal battle rifle. Manufacturer, from its Delta character chamber marking, was Izhevsk Mechanical Plant in the Russian city by that name. It was manufactured in 1925, the year that Stalin took office, and the year that Hitler formed his SS. This rifle served, of course, in World War II when those two forces met in deadly conflict. This is an earlier hexagonal receiver bolt action rifle. This rifle is Import stamped on its chamber area, and renumbered for its serial number of record by order of the BATFE. Original numbers all match on the receiver, bolt and magazine, but those are not to be used as the serial number any longer for purposes of compliance with U.S. Law. Bolt serial number is mismatched, but the Ukrainian stock cartouche indicates Military Armorer acceptance. Construction is entirely blued steel, with white steel bolt. Bolt is pull cocker Mauser type with 90 degree throw; and the firing mechanism will rest with a depressed trigger throw. Stock is beveled two piece Russian hardwood, steel escutcheon slotted for tab style leather sling. Caliber is 7.62x54R, one of the most plentiful and most effective hunting rounds in the world. Magazine is straight line steel box type with swivel floorplate, designed for, but not requiring, 5 round stripper clips. Capacity is 5+1 rounds. Barrel is 29 inch 1:10 right hand 4 groove. Sights are flat steel military rear square notch, calibrated from 100 to 2000 meters; front sight is steel hood protected blade type. The front sight interlocks with bayonet hardware and serves as its lug; original issue but non matching 4 flute 17 inch bayonet is included. Weight empty is 8.8 pounds, with center of gravity at the chamber. Overall length is 48 1/2 inches, with 13 1/4 inch length of pull from the trigger face to the center of the curved steel buttplate.
