This rifle has been heavily used throughout history since it was first produced in 1891, and though it is a Russian rifle, it has become popular in countries across the world from Finland to the United States to China. The Mosin-Nagant has such a rich history that it would be wrong to not share it, so if you are interested in learning something new, keep reading.

As stated before, all of this started in 1891 when Russia began producing the Mosin-Nagant. After the Russo-Ottoman War (1877-1878) Russia was in desperate need of a modernized rifle for their army, so they set up a contest to find one. A Russian Captain named Sergei Ivanovich Mosin ended up winning the contest and named the rifle after himself. However, the rifle contained ideas from another contestant’s proposal, Belgian designer Leon Nagant, so the rifle was titled the Mosin-Nagant in respect for the other designer.

The rifle was first produced in Russia, but due to manufacturing shortages before World War I, American companies, Remington and New England Westinghouse, were employed to manufacture the rifle for the European powerhouse. However, the production of these “American Mosin’s” was placed on hold when the Russian Revolution began in 1917, and later Russian leader Vladimir Lenin refused to pay the American companies for what they had produced. In an attempt to help these companies, the American military purchased a large sum of the rifles from Remington and New England Westinghouse, and the remaining rifles were sold to civilians.”
