Interim Nagant and Comparison to Two Semi-Auto Builds


by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor


We have a usable “interim build” on our Mosin Nagant project rifle.  As you remember, this is a cherry 1938 Model 91/30 Mosin Nagant with full barrel, original bolt with matching numbers and a gleaming bore.

Comparison rifles are a Type 56/SKS, Norinco, unfired, and a Springfield M1A with a vintage but excellent USMC stock with great heritage markings.

To the Nagant, we have added a bipod, flash suppressor, carrying handle (excellent choice) and moved to an LER (Long Eye Relief) scope.  I have finally decided it is a 2x – 7x 32mm.
