Default Remington Mosin Nagant

I just read that Remington made 1.5 million mosin nagants around 1916 and 1917. (New England Westinghouse made about 1.8 million). That is cool. Where can they be found? How much are they worth? How do they compare to regular Mosin Nagants?

The quality is SUPERB, far ahead of the later models. Great bluing, nice wood, great maching and finish. THe internet gun auctions have these quite often, so keep looking. Price ranges from $250 to $700 depending on condition.

$250 is not bad. I think that our military used these at one (very brief) period of time. I read that Russia defauled on their balance and the US Government canceled the contract. (they did not want to deliver them to the Bolsheviks) so the Government bought them from Remington and Westinghouse (mostly Westinghouse) to keep them from going bankrupt. These thing have a very interseting history to them.
It turns out that out of the 1.5 million ordered from Remington, there were only 750,000 made.
And out of the 1.8 million orgered from Westinghouse, only 769,520 were made.
Many of these were delivered to Russia until the Bolsheviks took power in Russia and the US contracts were cancelled.
The ones that the US Military bought (for $32 each) were mainly used for Army recruit training as several National Guards (like Colorado and Alaska). Most of the rifles that did not end up being surcharged were given to the NRA who then sold them for $3.90 each plus $1.58 for postage. (I wish they were still this price )
They were sold out of them by 1929.
They were also used by American Expeditionary Forces (A.E.F. sailors, USMC, and US Army troops) in Murmansk, Archangel and Vladivostok during the Red/White Russian Civil War. When the trops (who were used to the 1903s and 1917s and hated the Mosins) came home, they left the Mosins there. (most of these were destroyed so that the Bolsheviks could not use them.
They have been used in WWI, the Winter War, WWII, and the Spanish Civil War.

I may have to get one or two someday.

I heard the 30-06 rechamberd vesions are pretty common compared to the 7.62mm, still a very nice rifle though.

I don't plan on buying one quite yet. I was just curious about them. Thanks for the heads up though.

The U.S. made ones are scarce. The .30-06 ones are quite questionable for the round. Not sure why as 7.62x54r max is 57,000psi and .30-06 max is 60,000.
7.62x63 are very rare. Most were sold off in the 1920's for $7.00. Imperial U.S. made rifles were usually scrubbed and re-arsenaled in later years.
