The Mosin–Nagant (Russian: Винтовка Мосина, ISO 9: Vintovka Mosina) is
a bolt-action, internal magazine fed, military rifle used by the armed
forces of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and various other
nations.

It gets its name from the Russian Artillery Colonel Sergei Ivanovich
Mosin who designed the bolt and receiver, and the Belgian Emile
Nagant, who designed the magazine system[1] Also known as the
Three-Line Rifle (Трёхлинейная винтовка, Trëhlinejnaâ vintovka), in
reference to the 7.62 mm calibre, it was the first to use the
7.62x54mmR cartridge.

As a front-line rifle, the Mosin–Nagant served in various forms from
1891 until the 1960s in many Eastern European nations, when the sniper
rifle variant was replaced by the Dragunov sniper rifle (Снайперская
винтовка Драгунова, Snajperskaâ vintovka Dragunova), and because of
its ruggedness and the vast number produced is still in use in many
conflicts.

Initial design and trials
During the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–78, Russian troops armed with
mostly Berdan single-shot rifles engaged Turks with Winchester
repeating rifles resulting in heavy casualties. This emphasized to
commanders a need to modernize the Imperial army. The Russian Main
Artillery Administration undertook the task of producing a
magazine-fed, multi-round weapon in 1882. After failing to adequately
modify the Berdan system to meet the requirements, a "Special
Commission for the testing of Magazine fed Rifles" was formed to test
new designs.

Sergei Ivanovich Mosin, a captain in the Imperial army, submitted his
"3-line" calibre (.30 cal, 7.62 mm) rifle in 1889 alongside a 3.5-line
design by Léon Nagant (a Belgian) and a 3-line design by captain
Zinoviev. When trials concluded in 1891, the units which tested the
rifles were split in their decision. The main disadvantages of
Nagant's rifle were the following: more complicated mechanism, long
and tiresome procedure of disassembling (which required special
instruments - it was necessary to unscrew two screws). Mosin's rifle
was mainly criticised for lower quality of manufacture and of
materials used which resulted in a slightly larger number of
stoppages. The Commission voted 14 to 10 to approve Nagant's rifle.
However, the head of the commission, General Chagin, insisted on
subsequent trials held under the Commission's supervision during which
Mosin's rifle showed its advantages, leading to its selection over the
Nagant.
