The Mosin-Nagant bolt-action rifle is the most basic of the Russian and Soviet small arms. Before being replaced by the snayperskaya vintovka Dragunova (SVD) in the 1960s, the selected, scoped version of the rugged Mosin-Nagant was the principal sniper rifle of the Soviet army and of many Eastern European militaries. It is still used in many conflicts because of the large numbers in which it was produced. This manual, available in English for the first time, is entirely devoted to the sniper version of the 1891/30 Mosin-Nagant rifle with PU scope. It covers disassembly and assembly, cleaning and lubricating, and other general technical information, but its real value lies in the sniper-specific tactics it contains. Instructions and illustrations are included for the following topics: sniper firing positions; battlefield observation points; range estimation; how to fire at stationary, fleeting, moving and aerial targets; two ballistic tables; and much more. This is a must-have reference for Mosin-Nagant rifle and sniper enthusiasts.

mosin-Nagant rule was adoptea In itivi lay imperial mussia. me action ca tne rifle was developed by Colonel S. I. Mosin of the Imperial Russian Army, and the magazine was developed by Nagant, a Belgian. All Soviet bolt action military rifles and carbines are Mosin-Nagant weapons and all are basically similar to the original Mosin-Nagant rifle adopted by Russia in 1891. These weapons can be considered reasonably effective infantry weapons. Fairly good shooting can be done with them at combat ranges, although their sights do not lend themselves to the finer degrees of accuracy which can be obtained with similar United States weapons. They suffer from an overcomplicated bolt, but in other respects are relatively simple to service and maintain. The safety, in that it is extremely hard to engage and disengage, represents a shortcoming of the weapons.

The Mosin-Nagant is the world's longest-surviving and most widely distributed military rifle, having armed the forces of Russia and many other countries for more than five decades. It has seen action from World War I to the present day, but is most famous for its role during World War II when it proved to be an excellent sniping weapon in the hands of marksmen such as Vasily Zaitsev and Simo Häyhä. This study covers the rifle's entire combat history, from its early development through to its service in combat and the impact it has had on modern firearms. Dramatic battle reports and specially commissioned artwork complement the meticulously researched examination of the Mosin-Nagant provided by author Bill Harriman as he delves into the history of one of the most iconic rifles of World War II.

The submachine gun (SMG) came to be the embodiment of the Soviet fighting spirit during World War II. From 1943 the Red Army's preference for close-quarters combat resulted in entire infantry units being equipped with nothing but SMGs. By deploying multiple SMG-armed companies and battalions, the Red Army was able to develop ferocious firepower in urban warfare and position assaults, the soldiers keeping within the SMG's effective range of about 150m to nullify the German skills in armoured and manoeuvre warfare, artillery support and aerial bombardment. Featuring expert analysis and an array of specially commissioned full-colour artwork, this engaging study explains the history, use and development of Soviet wartime SMGs in detail. It gives particular focus to the tactical applications of these weapons in combat, and how they compared to firearms wielded by their German opponents. With numerous first-hand combat accounts, and detailed technical explanations, this book is ideal for both the general reader and the firearms enthusiast.
