For some reason, now that I actually own one, it is starting to bug me hearing other shooters butcher the pronunciation of the name, especially when Americans say it, "Mozin (like a Texan abbreviating one who moseys down to the bar) Nagahhnt (Ah pronounced like the a in "ancillary", hard T).

If we can all say Winchester, Smith & Wesson and especially Arisaka correctly, we owe it to our Russian Battle Rifles to at least give them the respect of not butchering the name. Now trying to figure out how to pronounce "Izhevsk correctly", I'll give us that, very challenging.

I think it's IZH-yevsk, with the ZH sounding like the s measure

I say 'eaz-vesk'... It's also pronounced 'sigh-guh' not 'say-guh' but I rarely say it correctly.

I didn't know how to pronounce it, either, until my

interest picked up, after having one of my best

days ever with it, at the range.

Now, I probably know more about these

rifles than the average Russian...

Mine is properly referred to as "Finnish M28", hard to butcher but not as well referenced outside of the 7.62x54R circles.......
