Military Review

In Syrian Idlib, the Mosin rifle was turned into a sniper complex

66

In various regions of Syria, photographs are published that depict the artisanal refinement of weapons known for many years. One of the weapons, which undergoes all kinds of refinements by both the Syrian military personnel and the militants, was and remains the Mosin rifle, which is also a three-line. As you know, this rifle appeared weapon at the end of the XIX century, however, is actively used in a variety of conflicts to this day.


In the next version of the modified three-ruler, you can see several elements that definitely cannot be called characteristic for the classic sample. The fact is that it was this Mosin rifle in the photo that was turned into a sniper complex.

In particular, the Bushnell DMR optical sight is used on the three-line, which allows the shooter to switch relatively quickly from long shooting distances to short ones. The presented version of optics is estimated at about 100 thousand rubles.



As you can see, the rifle is equipped with sliding bipod, as well as a silencing system.

Under the arrow created and the butt of this small arms.

According to some reports, a snapshot of this rifle was made in the Syrian province of Idlib. Moreover, it is stated that the owner of such an updated version of small arms is looking for a buyer. On this occasion, the network joked: “The option to lay down arms” in Idlib does not work, but the option “Sell weapons” works.

      You are right any rifle sharpened for an accurate hit is primarily a barrel. The rest is secondary.

      So otozh. "Mosya", if it is in sniper performance, at a distance of 800 meters "above the roof". Well, sticking good optics, bipods, redoing the bed is not a problem. Moreover, different kits are being sold.

        The budget for the above - a custom box of 200 bucks begins. 4x18 lupold glass starts at 800. bipod trifle 40 yus. elastic on the butt. Descent Grind the spring to make soft. hang the trunk ..... I do not understand what is so unique about the trunk? rifled technology or thick whit barrel or .... cool modern trunks give a guarantee of 1 moa up to 5 thousand shots ... or some ancient unique technologies that the rest of the world does not know. a mosquito and a mosquito - 200 bucks buushnaya ... why bother on her garden for a half thousand ....
        about 800m smiled - if not a shot barrel collects in one corner minute - it's an 8 inch saucer of a mathematical type without a bullet falling. and it falls by 40cm to 500m and then it’s shooting at squares. I'm not sure what they mean by the concept - sniper kit

          It was about a non-shot barrel and a good shooter. Mattress optics are also not required, the Belarusian "Yukon" makes quite a decent one, at a very reasonable price.

                The prospect does not allow to evaluate the barrel length. The front sight is really absent, well, and as you yourself said, the barrel can be from a carbine.

                  I agree, the angle is not the best, but it seems to me that in length it looks more like a carbine.
                  Here’s a mosquito in similar tuning, it’s straight on the box that it is longer.

    What is a sniper complex with a barrel after circumcision (or chopping off?)? ... Rather, a sawn-off shotgun with an unclear why attached "distant" optics and a butt - the product of a local cabinetmaker. As the famous advertisement says - "And there were some conversations ..."

      Yes, given the number of them in warehouses, I’m sure that you can find the barrel directly from the factory, albeit a hundred years ago.

    In 1931, a sniper "version" of the Mosin rifle was created in the USSR. The clip had to be removed from the sight and the rifle could only shoot single-shot. And the narrowing of the barrel led to accuracy and range.
    In this embodiment, the design of the sight allows you to save the native clip for five rounds.
    The Soviet Mosin sniper rifle used a bayonet-knife, which made the barrel heavier. But it had a positive effect on the accuracy of fire, which is simply necessary both when retreating with a battle, and when attacking. Well, the "bayonet-good fellow" (the barmaley does not understand) in addition.
    So not everything needs to be "cut".

        Even the new barrel (see, for example, in the museum) had the possibility of using a bayonet. The mount was simply changed. But it was shot without a bayonet-knife.
        A big difference was used or there was a possibility of use I do not see.

          I don’t have to go to the museum, I am well acquainted with the Mosin rifle. On the barrel of the Mosin rifle arr. 1891/30, there are no special devices for attaching a bayonet. Therefore, the trunks of the infantry and sniper options are no different and the bayonet can be installed on any of them. But the sniper rifle was not equipped with a bayonet and was not used with a bayonet, you can see the NSD of any year yourself. You better tell me what bayonet-knives were in 1931?

    He himself fired from a "mosinka" for three hundred meters, moreover, from an infantry, with a barrel length of 82 cm. New-made butt, according to a hunting model, semi-pistol, bipod mounted directly on the barrel, by means of a ring, removable swivel. Hunting sight, shtatovsky, "Reflexor", variable magnification, 2,8-10X40, made in China. Bullets lay in a 3x5 circle. The cartridge is ordinary, with an LPS bullet. There was simply no target for long range.

    Well, if they completely cut off the dead version and put it off for sale - then put the flag in the right place .... But if they mocked the working tool - so no words - just vandals.
    But, as from my point of view, no one, even the most stubborn barmaley, will begin to trash a good vinar.
    So, most likely, they want to bet on someone who is no longer worthless and glamorous for sale at least for something .. Every piece - albeit the most unnecessary one - has its own buyer.
