These rifles have seen mass world service history and were produced in large variations from different arsenals dating 1891 to 1965 with est. 37,000,000 made!
In the years after World War II, the Soviet Union ceased production of all Mosin–Nagants and withdrew them from service in favor of the semi auto SKS series carbines and eventually the AK series rifles. Despite its increasing obsolescence, the Mosin–Nagant saw continued service throughout the Eastern bloc and the rest of the world for many decades to come. Mosin–Nagant rifles and carbines saw service on many fronts of the Cold War, from Korea and Vietnam to Afghanistan and along the Iron Curtain in Europe. They were kept not only as reserve stockpiles, but front-line infantry arms as well.
The 7.62×54mmR is a rimmed rifle cartridge developed by the Russian Empire and introduced as a service cartridge in 1891. Originally designed for the bolt-action Mosin–Nagant rifle, it was used during the late Tsarist era and throughout the Soviet period to the present day. The cartridge remains one of the few standard-issue rimmed cartridges still in military use and has the longest service life of all military-issued cartridges in the world.
- Milled hex receiver, (hex receivers are more desirable due to them being, rarer, stronger and thicker than normal receivers)
- Hex receivers predate the round receiver models. Round receiver production began in 1936 and was the standard Mosin-Nagant receiver going forward.
The rifling of the Mosin barrel is right turning (clockwise looking down the rifle) 4-groove with a twist of 1:9.5" or 1:10". The 5-round fixed metallic magazine can either be loaded by inserting the cartridges singly, or more often in military service, by the use of 5-round stripper clips.
