Russian snipers with Mosin rifles 1891

Those mobilized from St. Petersburg for the war in Ukraine received Mosin rifles of the 1891 model with a sniper scope.

The Mosin rifle is certainly an excellent weapon. The combat range is about 1.5 km, the trouble-free manual supply of the cartridge allows the use of marsh slurry as a lubricant, and the accuracy of the mechanisms in the 19th century allows clogging with sand without any consequences.

The side mount of the sniper scope serves as an excellent bottle opener for beer, but in extreme cases, two of these rifles will replace rowing oars at the crossing of the Dnieper.

The total use by Russia of obsolete types of weapons suggests that in the near future the Russian army will receive arquebuses and trebuchets.
