Mosin-Nagant 1891 rifle

One of approximately 37,000,000 built between 1891-1965, this type of rifle was used mainly by the USSR and allies.
This particular rifle was made in 1905 by the Sestroryetsk Arsenal and a century later is showing considerable wear. It was around during the Russo-Japanese conflict, World War 1, the October Revolution and WW2. Imagine what it has seen.
