- "The Mosin-Nagant is a bolt-action, internal magazine-fed, military rife, developed by the Imperial Russian Army in 1882-1891, and used by the armed forces of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and various other nations."
- — In-game description
The Mosin 91/30 is a bolt-action, internal magazine-fed rifle chambered for the 7.62x54mmR round. In the current build it incorrectly uses 7.62x51mm (aka 7,62mm NATO - this will be changed in the upcoming patch as of 04.02.2014). It is sufficiently powerful, and can be fitted with a wide variety of attachments despite its age.
The gun itself is based on the Mosin-Nagant M1891/30, which is an upgraded version of the original '1891' variant introduced in 1930 and 1931.
It was the standard rifle for the Soviet military from 1930 to 1944. It was replaced by the SKS rifle, which was in turn after a few years quickly replaced by the AK series of rifles.
However, many millions were manufactured and exported throughout the Soviet Union and its satellite states, as well as many allies.
This, coupled with the relative availability of ammunition and inexpensive cost has resulted in the rifle's use in many wars, including the Korean War, Vietnam War, and has even seen use in recent conflicts like Afghanistan.
The Mosin can be spray painted. Combining both green and black will give the rifle a camouflage pattern paint-job, which goes well with a Hunting Backpack or a green Mountain Backpack and any green piece of gear to efficiently camouflage a player in trees.

 Sights & Optics
Mid-range scope made for the Mosin 91/30 can also fit on SKS.
Long-range hunting scope that fits on the Mosin 91/30. A Mosin with this attachment is currently seen as the best long range weapon in the Stand Alone version and as one of the top tiered weapons in the game, competing with the M4A1 for the title of the highest tier gun.
This bipod provides solid support for longer range engagements, will allow for greater weapon accuracy when deployed and user is at a prone stance.
It has to be deployed manually by right-clicking in inventory.
A bayonet can be found and attached to the bayonet lug of the Mosin Nagant 91/30 on the under side of the barrel. It can be used to open cans. The bayonet cannot currently be used as a weapon-mounted melee weapon, but this is planned on being implemented at some point.
