Mossin Nagant 91
Model 91 (not 91/30 that one usually meets). Thus one of the high time tsarist.
There are however two curiosities: the plate of layer and a part fixed in front of the magazin.
It must be used for something.
This rifle is Mosin Nagant MOD 1891 with fasteners of strap modified and small non lawful modifications to put it at measurement according to the morphology of a gunner of the civil field (club of shooting), this one wanting to personalize its weapon. I do not see other explanation.
Many thanks to the "ROYAL ARMY MUSEUM" Bruxelles for the pictures.
