Two things I have to say:

1) You think it holds ten rounds. Really? It's 5 (and not 5+1 unless you cheat a little bit).
2) It's pronounced "Moe-Zin", not "moy-seen". It was Belgian produced, so it's a French-derived last name. In its original pronunciation it would be "moh-za~", anglicized by "moe-zin".

Other than that, awesome video. I love Mosin's....you simply can't beat them for the cost. They're pretty, they're accurate, they're cheap, and they're historically significant. The only problem is the cosmoline.

Also, the hammer and sickle (plus the year) signify it was Russian manufactured in Izhevsk. I think it's by far the most common rifle.

3) The M44 doesn't mean it was "brought here and reissued." it means it's a carbine...note the side folder bayonet.

Good call on the M44, my girlfriend was talking through half of the video...so I couldn't hear much of it. I knew it was a Carbine, I just couldn't figure out if he mentioned that or not.

I love my 91/30 I've been taking it on every hunting trip since I got it, thinking about putting a PU scope on it, good video.
