The thing that amazed me on the Mosin, is how much flame comes out of the end of it. But if you read any account of Stalingrad, the Russians were sniping at will, day and night with them. Curious how something that seeming lights up the sky like it's Christmas each shot: was so effectively utilized as a sniper rifle.

Not all Mosin ammo produces a large muzzle flash. I have no idea about what they were using in WWII but alot of the ammo available today produces nothing more than what's normal for any rifle.

On that same note, the most common rounds available in the U.S. are Polish and Hungarian surplus, aside from commercial Russian rounds. And that stuff (typically comes in a 880rd spam can or 20rd paper pouches) is known to sometimes toss out a damn near solar flare. Most of it's from the early 70's.

Speaking of Commie guns. Check out Russias new Ash-12 bullpup.

This thing fires a massive 12.7 X 55 (.50cal) round and holds 30 in the mag. Certainly gives you less options for cover.

We have one, it's called the United States. Don't like being in the room with us, move to Iran or Cuba.

On a serious note, I don't understand why talking about stuff with people of similar interests bothers you people who don't share that interest so much. I'm a history buff, and nothing has influenced history so much as the gun. At least modern (past 500 years) history. So naturally I'm generally interested in the subject of historical armament. It has nothing to do with penis size, fanatical fascinations or psychotic illusions. It's just interesting, and fortunately for me, I live in a free country where my Natural Rights are protected by a Constitution giving me the God given (not Government given) right to Keep and Bare arms. So I get to own and shoot these historical weapons, just for fun. You also have the right to choose not to Keep and Bare arms if it suits you. If in that case, don't move to Switzerland.

If you don't like the Trip Reports, don't click on them. If you don't like the Politard threads, don't click on them. Likewise if you don't like the Gun threads, DONT CLICK ON THEM! No need to sit atop some moral high chair spewing your narcissistic opinions in some holier than thou pissfest. If you're on a gun debate thread, love to hear your opinion. But if you're just getting an opinionated political cheap shot in on some benign thread about an interesting subject, you seriously need to examine the content of your character.

Back to Commie Guns, which is an oxymoron because no Commie is allowed to have them.

I had a Mosin M44. It went to the pawn shop, where it stayed. The fireball at the muzzle is all too familiar. Impressive that! Still have the ammo, like 300rds. Had it all set up with the scout scope. Removed the bayonet, as it shot much better without. MUCH better.

Interesting side note, at the last gun show there was a rough specimen of the older variety for a reasonable price. Too bad the dude at the table talked me out of it. I had picked up a french Berthier and was eyeballing it. Dude says "you don't want that".
Excuse me?
"You don't want that."
Really?
"Yeah, it's french."
I know what it is. I have one, but I have the carbine. (set down berthier, pick up mosin 91)
"It's a Berthier. You can't get ammo for 'em."
Uh, yes you can. From Norma. And Lee makes dies.
"Yeah, but you can't afford it! You don't want that."
You're right bud, I don't want anything off your table. (set down mosin, walk away)

Gun show loophole? Not a problem with this dude around!

That's hilarious, never had anyone try and talk me out of buying a gun at a gun show.

Wanna sell that ammo? 30 bucks plus shipping???

They may not discuss climbing on pervert websites either, but that never stopped you from posting smut on here.

Classy Chaz. I never posted smut. why do tits frighten you so. Nobody ever died from a mass boobing.
Multiple gun threads on page one of a climbing site seems real lame to me.

Meh. You guys want to derail the thread? Talking to Chaz and Tradman here, (not Phil or Joe Hedge). Just remember that it takes two to tango. It won't derail unless you take it there. And Chaz, why not delete that garbage?

I am going to keep the ammo, would like to get another Mosin. Thanks though.

I do talk about climbing on the 4x4 site. Let the NRA membership lapse about a decade ago.

Tanks for the mammaries?

Useless without photos (but I guess she was busted).



Hey guys, don't respond to the trolls and whiners.


That Ash 12 looks interesting. Is it just me or is the scope mounted with an obvious forward cant for ultra range?

They made some good ones. (OK should have said "formerly Commie"
And they made some lemons. If you ever get offered a deal on a Baikal shotgun, or worse yet, ammo, resist the urge. The communist era guns were ugly and heavy, but probably indestructible. The ammo was at best amusing, typically one misfire/hangfire per box of 25, and the occasional shell had so little powder the shot would all land about 20 feet ahead. I was flat broke at the time, but splashed out on the second-cheapest brand after a few boxes of those.

Well, Gary, the T-34 certainly was a good tank and its 75 mm gun ruined
the day for many a Panzer II's and III's which only had 37 or 50's. Against
the Panzer IV's and Panthers it was an equal only in capable hands, at best.
The great success of the T-34 was that over 57,000 were built compared to
45,000 Panzer II-IV and Panthers many of which were lost in N Africa. Those
numbers contain the 26,000 Panzer II's and III's which were not a match for
the T-34.
