In excellent all matching condition, we have a 1917 Tula Arsenal made M 1891 Mosin Nagant Service Rifle, that has had the imperial crest defaced, an indication of issue to the Soviet Bolshevik Red Guard at the time of the Russian Revolution. This rifle as all Russian rifles of this period has seen a rework or two. The bore is very nice as well. This comes with a WWI era Tula made bayonet, this is the socket and collar variety not the one for the 91-30 rifle.
Rifles such as this very example would have been used by the Bolshevik hoards during the Russian Civil war. Lord only know how many firing squads this rifle was a part of. With that very long bayonet you can march down your town’s main street in style the next time they have a revolution. The 1891 Nagant Rifle was very rugged and tough and it served Russian and Soviet Interests right through to WWII.
