Mosin-Nagant 91/30

The Mosin-Nagant 91/30 is a bolt-action rifle chambered in 7.62X54mmR. The Mosin-Nagant 91/30 was introduced to the Russian/USSR military in 1891 and stayed in service until the end of World War II. In fact, it became the standard issue service rifle beginning in 1930 to all Russian soldiers and, during WWII, commonly used as a sniper rifle. It has standard features for a military rifle of its time such as iron sights, wooden stock and bayonet stud. It was mass-produced and often rushed through production, however, it was still surprising accurate, but not without faults. Common criticisms, besides its bland appearance, include the handguards heat up and fail to protect the hands, and it is an arduous task to mount a scope on it.

The 7.62X54R is a old Russian combat cartridge and has comparable performance to 7.62 NATO or .308 Win. rounds, which are popular for long-range shooting.
