The Mosin-Nagant was a Russian military bolt-action rifle, first introduced in 1891, and in regular production until the early 1960s. They remain in use in hot spots worldwide. In recent years, surplus Mosin-Nagants have become very popular with Civilians, and the people of Chernarus were no exception.


The Mosin-Nagant is quite common, but is generally considered inferior to the Lee-Enfield, because of it's heavy recoil, which limits the accuracy of rapid fire. The Mosin is also extremely loud, and can easily be heard from a kilometer away. Even when fitted with a Scope, the Mosin is inferior to the CZ-550. However, The Mosin is still far better than weapons like the Double-barreled Shotgun.

The Mosin-Nagant supports a variety of attachments, including the Scope and Weapon Flashlight.


The Mosin-Nagant only accepts Mosin-Nagant Rounds.
