People who call a Mosin Nagant a Nagant.
Ive heard it pronounced several ways (I dont mean just sayin Nagant). How is it correctly pronounced?
It is not about the pronunciation, it is about it being a MOSIN!
I LOVES MY NAGANTpistol and my Mosin NagantRIFLE
Really with all things to worry about in this world. You know what they are talking about. Relax life is to short.
+1 What he said..
I don't know. For some reason it just burns my grits.
The Lee-Enfield rifle is commonly referred to as simply an Enfield. I do not know anyone that gets upset at that even though Enfield also made handguns (and a number of other firearms).
I too get anal about nomenclature like magazine vs. clip, but Mosin Nagant is not one of my anal issues (perhaps because I do not own either)
The mag and clip thing used to get to me. But with all the online azzholes I just let it go. I know guys that know 10 times what any one around knows about guns and they say clip all the time.
My thing is you dam well know what they are talking about so get over it.
Really? I've never seen an Enfield pistol.
So how do you feel about a U.S. Model 1917 rifle being referred to as a P-17?
Enfield No. 2 MK I:
Well that might explain why I never seen a No. 2 rifle.
It bugs me. No such thing as a P17.
Pattern 14 (P14) Enfield rifle .303 caliber (very similar to the P17 Eddystone rifle)
Pattern 17 (P17) Eddystone rifle 30-06 caliber
Also, there is an Enfield Pistol No1 Mk2, however you may be more familiar with the Webly & Scott revolvers all of WW1 and WW2 fame.. Webley & Scott also made auto loaders.
Pattern 14 rifle. P14.
Rifle, Model of 1917.1917.
The 1917 is not a P17, though that is how they are commonly referred to.
BTW... they're not ALL Eddystones either.
Back to the Nagant issue. I hate it when a Mosin Nagant is called a Mosin. 91/30, M44, M38, M39, 91/59 is easier. Yes it could be a U.S. M44, but that usually does not come up on Surplus threads. We are talking arf.com lingo here. What a bunch of mall ninjas.
What did I miss? All Eddystones are Eddystones.. My reference was about folks calling them pattern 17's or P17's.. I do know a Pattern 14 is not an Eddystone but it "looks" similar.. only in british 303 caliber.
But like Tango said, who really gives a rip as long as you know what they're talking about
Ummm... the thread title?
And I know my rifle, US Model of 1917, is not an Eddystone.
People with a pet peeve?
Seriously, it works both ways.....
It's all good ..
And for the record? I refer to all my MN rifles as Mosin Nagants and the revolver as Nagant..
