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.'

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!

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.
