Mosin Nagant Still Seeing Action in Syria


Even after 100 years the venerable old Mosin Nagant is still being used around the world. The video above shows Syrian rebels using a Mosin Nagant 91/30 to attempt t0 snipe at Syrian government troops. I wonder if these guys can still hear anything after popping a few rounds without hearing protection? The Mosin isn’t the only WWII rifle being used in Syria, a while back we posted about an M1 Garand spotted in Syria and a large cache of STG-44s found in Syria as well.

Check out a few other videos of the Mosin being used in the conflict in Syria.


  1. Despite their age, these rifles are still deadly powerful and can be capable of good accuracy. The 7.62x54mmR cartridge is still used all around the world, and hits much harder than the 7.62x39mm round used in the AK-47. These guns are reliable, tough, and would make serviceable ersatz marksman rifles even today. They can be found all over the globe doing just that, as can be seen in the above videos.
