The official Mosin thread


I can only help with a few. I’m sure some one here has a whole lot more information than I do.

Low center triangle with arrow is: USSR (Izhevsk Arsenal; post 1929 parts making)

The square with the line through the middle is: USSR (post World War II, arsenal-refinished metal parts)

Center top faded stamp: USSR (Izhevsk Arsenal, 1929
The information was obtained by the book written by Terence W Lapin, The Mosin-Nagant Rifle 3rd Edition.


For grins I’ll post up my two Mosins. So, which one was the former PU sniper? Take a guess. Should be easy for a Mosin enthusiast. :wink:




Bottom one is your former sniper, comrade :sunglasses:
