by shanethenurse February 13, 2012 Guns / Weapons

I am a big fan of the Mosin-Nagant rifles. What can I say the commies knew how to make a great rifle, though this rifle was designed and in use before Lenin and company came to power. There are a few variants of the common Mosin-Nagant rifle that most people are familiar with. The 91/30, […]
