I've always said Mo-zin Nuh-Ghan. I have heard from Rusky sources that the 't' on the end is silent.

I once knew a guy that pronounced it 'Mah-zee Guh-not.':rolleyes:

I asked a Russian native how to pronounce Mosin-Nagant and she answered very much like you have typed. I think you have nailed it!:D

It's a bolt-action, internal magazine-fed, military rifle invented under the government commission by Russian and Belgian inventors, and used by the armed forces of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and various other nations, ya'll. :p

I saw the same description on 7.62.net, I'd link it up but I don't feel like it! :D

If you say it out loud, it sounds like a French accent but I'll be dipped if I'm gonna walk around talkin' like some cheese eatin' surrender monkey so me says MO-ZIN...then I go and ice my shoulder down...;)
