This is a very nice all original Russian 91/59 Mosin Nagant carbine that was originally manufactured in 1943 at the Izhevsk Arsenal. Mechanically this carbine is in excellent working order and is sure to be a great shooter. This carbine was manufactured as a 91/30 in 1943 and then later converted to a carbine. These are somewhat rare in regards to Mosin Nagant carbines. There is a small import mark at the end of the barrel.
