Is a Mosin Nagant 91 30 accurate?

Despite its shortcomings, the Model 1891/30 was rugged, reliable and accurate, its average minute of arc ranging from a 1.5 to below 1 (less than an inch over 100 meters). It proved murderously successful.

Can ammunition be imported?

Firearms and ammunition must be imported by a Federal firearms licensee (FFL)—generally an importer licensed by ATF to routinely engage in that business. The FFL must obtain an import permit from ATF to import or bring into the U.S. any firearm. It generally takes at least 4-6 weeks for ATF to process the ATF Form 6.

What kind of rifle is the Mosin Nagant?

Zaytsev had a Russian Mosin-Nagant “sniper” rifle. The Mosin-Nagant is a rifle designed in 1891 and was the primary Russian service rifle of the day. The 7.62×54 mm R cartridge it fires is still used today and is the longest-serving military cartridge in the world. In fact, It’s the only rimmed cartridge still being used by any military.

Why did the Mosin rifle fall in price?

In some ways, the astronomical prices of Garands, Mausers, and Enfields generated an increased demand for WWII era pieces by younger collectors and the Mosin fell at a great price point. Another explanation is perhaps the supplies of the most mass-produced bolt action service rifle in history are finally drying up.

Can a elevation be changed on a Mosin Nagant?

Elevation can be changed from zero to 13 based on the distance in meters. Finally, Norma makes cases for this cartridge for handloading. Like all Norma brass, they are wonderfully made and almost seem like overkill when compared to the steel-case cartridges normally used in Mosin-Nagant.

What is the windage dial on a Mosin Nagant?

The windage dial is, according to “The Soviet Mosin-Nagant Manual,” “marked for 10 angle divisions on both sides of zero: the marking + (plus) for adjustment to the right and the marking – (minus) for adjustment to the left. Only the 5th and 10th are numbered. The value of each division is 1/1000th of the distance.”
