Mosin Torture Test
Proof that the Mosin is unbelievably strong.

Yeah IV8888 and Barry did a good job. The HiPoint torture test was good. But I'm still gonna baby my Mosin.

At least I won't be as reluctant to

shoot hot loads from it.

I have two 91/30's, a 1930 & a 1938, and would never think of mistreating them, both are in excellent condition with all matching numbers.

Yep, I'll keep babying mine too. It just nice to know that it is very unlikely that it will blow up on you. Even with a hot load.

Mine are 70+ years old, have probably fought in a war and were stored in cosmoline for decades. Thats enough testing for me. :)

I've got a 1925 Hex Izzy. All matching serials. Good rifling.

A lot of fun to shoot. Good to know it would take the pounding

it will never get.

Stalingrad and Leningrad seem like proof enough that they are tough rifles.
