The Mosin Nagant M1891Rifle was introduced in 1891 and was the standard issue weapon of all Tsarist Imperial and Soviet forces until 1930. They were a simple, robust design that could continue working in the harsh environments that Russian troops often found themselves in. They had good accuracy and a competent shot would have no trouble hitting a man sized target at ranges out to a 1000 metres.
