The Mosin Nagant can trace its roots back to 1891, and it’s a rifle with a group of seriously dedicated fans. One model in particular whose history has been described as “murky” “cloudy” and “shrouded in mystery” by various Mosin aficionados is the 1891/59 model. The 91/59 is a carbine version of the 91/30, and the debate surrounding them is whether or not they were manufactured in Bulgaria for use by the Soviets for an impending invasion by we, the Westerners. There is certainly evidence to support the carbine’s Bulgarian roots, and now Eric of Iraqveteran8888 fame has taken it on in his new YouTube video, “The KGB Mosin Nagant.”
