Russian M1891 Infantry Rifle, One Only

Regular price $300.00

Item Description

Original Item:  When WW1 began, the Russians soon found that they were severely short of rifles,  especially after the great losses in the first battles on the Eastern Front.  Contracts were let with two American companies, Remington Arms and New England Westinghouse.  The American-made Mosins are considered to be the best made of all Mosins.  This sample is sound and in very good condition, but is missing some parts as described below.  Unlike Russian-made M1891s, all Westinghouse rifles are dated 1915, although they may have been manufactured in 1915, 1916, 1917, or 1918.  Includes dog-collar sling, M1891 bayonet(sn88657,Sestroryetsk Arsenal). No handguard, no cleaning rod, front sight blade missing.
