What's the Freeper consensus on pronunciation? This FAQ claims it's "mo-SEEN na-GOHN".

According to the ex commie who lives in the neighborhood behind me, and grew up in Russia, it’s pronounced Moe-seen Nahgahn
The T is silent in Nagant.

MO-seen Nah-GON. Russia uses the Cyrillic alphabet, while we use the Latin alphabet.
To get from one to the other, you have to transliterate, which is always open to interpretation.

I pronounce it Mosin Nagant, ‘cause I’m an American and no commie tells me how to talk.

At six-eight, the mosie is about the right length for Hickok.

I guess it is just me, but I see some irony that we will use a lot of soviet weapons to defend our freedom.

I love watching hickok45 videos.

He looks like he really has a lot of fun doing them and getting to play with all of those different guns.

That's how Hickok pronounces it initially and is probably correct. Then for the rest of the video he pronounces it phonetically as MOE-sin Na-GAHNT, which I'm guessing is the most common way you'll hear it.

Mosin was Russian. (MO-seen)

Nagant was Belgian. (Na-gau)

The Russians never called the rifle the Mosin-Nagant.

Although Nagant sued, and was paid hush money, the fact remained that no appreciable part of his design was incorporated in the final rifle, and that Mosin’s design won the competition. As that wasn’t well known at the time, the Western media just called it the Mosin-Nagant.

I am going to a gun show tomorrow and was thinking of picking one of the up. Is the ammo available? It’s not a common American caliber is it?

Any insight on what I should look for?

If that’s the case then Nagant must be a borrowed name because there’s no such thing as a silent T in Russian.

That's a nice-looking little range. I love shooting rim-fire Silhouette with revolvers. For some reason that Turkey always gives me more trouble than the smaller chicken or the boar or the ram.

The military surplus ammo has been pretty regularly available for quite a while. It's advantages are that it's cheap, and always goes bang (at least mine has). On the down side, it's quite corrosive, but it you're a stickler for cleaning the rifle after each use, that's not a problem.

If you buy one of the rifles that is still globbed up with cosmoline, be sure that everything gets a really thorough cleaning before using. That stuff can hide in every nook and cranny. Frequently gives people a case of "sticky-bolt" syndrome.

I love mine, and would shoot it even more than I do, but my shoulder complains when I shoot too much.

Good luck!

PS, Almost forgot. The old milsurp ammo is not reloadable. (Cases kinda look like brass but they aren't). Several modern manufacturers make current non-corrosive reloadable ammo in 7.62X54R.

It’s available.

7.62x54R - normally comes in 440 round tins for surplus.

Avoid Bulgarian - Any Russian, Polish, Albanian, etc. are ok. The ammo is corrosive...no biggie, just shoot windex down the barrel and around the bolt face (actually you can even use water) when done shooting to flush the corrosive salts. Then clean as normal.

May also want to buy a shoulder pad unless you’re wearing a large Russian Cossack jacket :-)

If you ever get a batch of very old Russian ammo that kicks so hard it causes the bolt to jam, discard it. The Soviets had a WWII era vehicle mounted machine gun that used the same ammo as the Mosin-Nagant, but they loaded it a lot hotter than the rifle ammo.

There used to be a webpage with photos of the head stamps that you had to be concerned about.

Mosin was Russian. Nagant was Belgian.

I have crates of 1953 head stamped Bulgarian.

It all goes bang and it hits what you point it at.

Mildly corrosive, swab the bore out with windex

Run a 45 ACP brass brush up the chamber on a drill motor soaked in hoppes #9.

No more sticky bolt.

There used to be plenty of Russian surplus around. I noticed recently that Cheaper Than Dirt had removed the listings altogether. All they have now is Hungarian surplus at around $0.20 a round.

I bought mine at Cabelas for $99.00 It came with all accessories bayonet, sling, cleaning kit, ammo pouches and tools. I saw one guy buying three. The sales guy said they sell as fast as they get them and a hundred will be gone in a day.

Right on Brother.

And I LOVE to pronounce Bombardier; Bomb a deer.

I will not humor the French to pronounce their words in French either.

Guess I’m a crude American just like the stereotype.

True also they are cheap in cost a sks, mosin all work and sure beats no firearm at all.

They make a good militia weapon for the masses that can’t afford more.

They make a good weapon to give away just so some one is armed that is willing to fight.

One of them and 50 to 100 rounds of ammo would make a freedom fighters day.
