The old war horse of Russia, the Mosin Nagant rifle, is more than meets the eye as this long range shooting shows.
The Mosin Nagant rifle has served the Russian military and many other countries for over a century now.
The surplus rifle market here in the United States has been flooded with these rifles, most being sold at incredibly low prices. See it in action.
Covered in grease and boxed in wooden crates at gun shows and gun shops, these old rifles look less than impressive. When fed quality ammunition such as the 7.62x54r model 7N1 military sniper cartridge, it’s more than capable. The shooter in this video hit a target 944 yards away, with supplied iron sights, and that’s enough evidence to prove its worth!
The Mosin-Nagant rifle is a winner in cost and accuracy.
