Failures in Historic/Scientific/Military Journalism

Recommended Posts



The illegal rifle-pistol combination that was turned in appears to be in very rough shape and is an example of a hasty job done on what was probably a legally or stolen 7.62x54r 91/30 Mosin Nagant. The magazinefloor plate is popped out, most likely from inspection of the piece. Notice also that the rear sight is set on the furthest setting, maybe a result of examining the piece instead of any actual intent to use it at that setting (either way, there is no front sight that could co-witness with it). With a capacity of 5 rounds (plus 1) and some wicked recoil to boot, this is probably one of the more uncomfortable firearms out there to fire. But, if this is all a criminal element could come up with, then it probably fits their bill.

      Google is well on the way to ruling the world.  This does not mean that they don't make mistakes.  We'll start with their messenger, which I greatly appreciated, but they did not.  Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so.
