1893 Imperial Tula m91

Post by ShaneB »

This is my only current antique Mosin Nagant. I believe from the markings this is a first style Imperial Tula m1891 rifle. It is Finish captured, sitting in a now cracked Finish wartime round splice stock. The stock looks amazing, minus the large toe crack that I need to get repaired before firing. The Fins counterbored the rifle about an inch, and the bore is dark but has rifling left. The bolt is Fin matched to the barrel, with the buttplate and magazine floorplate having no number. It came with Finish sling hangers and the sling attached, but no bayonet so I will need to look into getting an Imperial Tula style to match this rifle. The earliest Mosin Nagant I've seen in person, always looking to add more antiques to my collection.

One fine specimen. I love it when the crest is non ground and intact. A mighty fine M91.
