Description

In 1891, the Three Line Rifle was introduced into the service of the Russian Empire. The russian 91/30 Empire was formed in 1721. Obviously, this period is pre-modern-day Russia and even pre-USSR.

The three-line rifle served the Russian Empire until 1930, when a redesign introduced several advancements, although the overall shape of the russian 91 30 remained unchanged.

Consequently, the M1891 became known as the Mosin-Nagant M91/30 1940. Tests began in 1889, evaluating three rifle prototypes. The russian model 91 30 tradition of employing military officers as chief weapons designers persisted.

Captain Zinoviev, a relatively unknown officer, presented a “3-line” rifle with caliber 7.62, taking a distant third place in the tests.

This cartridge was developed to replace previous black powder rounds and has seen wide use in almost all theaters of war from Europe, Asia and even the Middle East and Africa.

There are several variants of the original M1891. Obviously, the M91/30 was the next big development.

After the M91/30, some were taken and given a low-power side sight and dogleg bolt and made into marksman rifles.

The site was located near the centerline of the rifle, so the bolt design had to be changed. These russian 91 30 for sale rifles are generally referred to as M91/30 PU.

In 1938, the 1934 russian 91 30 izhevsk model was introduced. The M38 would be a carbine version of the M91/30. The barrel was shortened for troops who would not normally see front-line combat. This would include artillery and other rear troops.
