- "The Mosin-Nagant is a bolt-action, internal magazine-fed, military rifle, 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, though incorrect, uses 7.62x51mm Rounds (aka 7,62mm NATO - this may change in the future). 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.
- The Mosin 91/30 can be considered a replacement of the Lee-Enfield from the Mod as "The Dinnerbell Rifle". This nickname comes from the loud sound it makes upon firing, "Ringing the dinnerbell" to nearby zombies.
- The rifle's in-game receiver is "hexagonal", with the front-receiver bridge being angled into half a hexagon, rather than round. The in-game model has a manufacture date stamp of the mid-30s, which makes the hexagonal front-receiver bridge anachronistic, as the transition from hexagonal to round receiver bridges took place between 1930 and 1936.
- The Mosin's 7.62x54r cartridge ballistic performance falls in-between those of the 7.62x51mm NATO and .30-06 Springfield cartridges.
- The ingame model features a bent-bolt handle, while in real life only PU Sniper models have a bent-bolt handle. It is also much shorter than an actual PU sniper's rifle bolt handle would be.
- The iron sight on a 91/30 feature elevating rear sights starting at 300m and can be raised to fire out to 1000m, or lowered down to 100m. The real rifle's rear sight can be set to 2000m
- 7.62x54mmR is the oldest smokeless powder cartridge still in service, 1891 to present day in the SVD and PKM in multiple countries.
- The long length of this rifle makes it difficult to wield up close. At times the barrel even penetrates through a zombie or player making your shot fired behind the target with no damage.
