I have a mosin and love it. Don't shoot those rounds though. They're steel core (armor piercing) and go through quite a bit before stopping and are corrosive as hell
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, it's easy enough to clean the bolt action, just dont run them through anything with a gas block.
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, they’re steel jacketed
Not core. They’re no worse than lead
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, my mosin is so much fun, it's sturdy and powerful and the hammer and sickle with olive branches engraved into it still looks so good
@carguy25, they're steel core, buddy. I've got like 6 that I caught using multiple phone books
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, all Russian AP ammo is black tip
Silver tip is heavy ball with steel jacket
@carguy25, silver tip is standard ball with a mild steel core. Yellow tip is heavy ball. Yellow tip with a silver band is heavy ball with a mild steel core. It's not armor piercing, but it sure penetrates better than standard lead-core projectiles.
@Medic135, i have a M44, dated 1944. i just ordered a new sight for it with a green sight tip from Smith-sights. Com, also ordered a finnish mosin magazine for it because its designed to stop rimlock.
Enemy at the gates. Great movie
If the solider in front of you dies, pick up his gun and keep running!!
Psh all you commies can keep your red guns, I’ll stick with the trusty Springfield 1903
Love my myosin hits steel out to 500yards
I just got a Mosin a few weeks ago
May i recommend checking out Smith-Sights. Com if your looking for any mosin upgrades or replacement parts. Just ordered a few things and im very happy with their products.
