BTW, this is my P17, a very, very, accurate 'as is' rifle (as in a 5 shot group @ 100 yds, all in one ragged hole) in spite of only having two grooves in the 'new' barrel. [It has a Remington 'pointy thing that mounts on the front' too.] Below it is my broomhandle. Those who are made uncomfortable by either name may, if legally eligible, give me $10,000 for either one so they can purchase it and rename them. Until then they will probably remain in this house as a P17 and a broomhandle.

Which is the way it should be. Nobody will be in doubt what you mean.

Yup, I have Remngton 1917 action (I believe) on my workbench at home. Had it for about 37 years, much prior to any thought of historic values.

Default Proud owner of a 1942...

Mosin/Nagant that was, "made by peasants for use by peasants"! But as
"unrefined" as it may be, it is deadly accurate after a slight adjustment to
the front sight! The 7.62 x 54 R cartrige packs the equivalent "whallop" that
a .308 win does with the same weight bullet! I plan to use my m/n if I have
to hunt the same wooded area that I harvested my last Elk with my .308
that was shot thru the spine @ 100 yds even though I "aimed low" with a
weapon that was "zeroed in" @ 400 yds!

The correct way to pronounce "Mosin-Nagant" is "MO-seen Nah-GON".

The term "Mosin-Nagant" is really a just a generalization for a group of rifles based on a design by Sergei Ivanovich Mosin and Leon Nagant who actually designed two seperate rifles for Russian trials between 1889-1891. Due to circumstances that would take way too long to explain here, the inferior Mosin design was chosen but with a catch, it was to use Nagant's feed system. In actuality it is most likely that any involvement Leaon Nagant had with the final design of the rifle ended when the trials did. So if you want to call it by a general term, "Mosin" is probably the most accurate.

As an example, the gun we most commonly refer to as the "Mosin-Nagant 1891" was actually designated "Russkaya trekhlineinaya vintovka obrazets 1891-ago goda" or "Russian 3-Line rifle, Model 1891" which was later renamed "Mosin-system 7.62 mm magazine rifle. Model of 1891". Probably why everyone just calls them "Mosins"
