    The third line on the bottom right sticker (Дата = date) means 'date of manufacture'. I can see 'June' stamped there, but maybe you can read the year.

    I’m impressed that, the seller and the Russian postal service both performed as expected.

    Молодец

    Does it take Russian NOS PIO caps? Apparently they give the best tone.

    I’d love to see what buying a gun from Russia has done to your file at DHS.

    Is that a knock on your door?

    When it comes to Nagant revolvers, just remember that "gas seal" has nothing to do with a walrus that ate at Taco Bell.

    I don't have any 9mm Makarov, but I'm pretty sure I still have a few boxes of 7.62x39 and 7.62x54 laying around here someplace, but I'm completely out of Russian cap gun ammo.

    It would be a historically inappropriate toy arm to play 'Cowboys and Native Americans' with, but perfectly fine for a little game of 'Assasinate Czar Nicholas and his family', or perhaps 'Seige of Leningrad Defender'.

    They can have my Russian cap gun when they take it from my cold, dead, fingers.

    So was I. I only half-expected it to actually make it here.

    I recently sold one of my Backlund model 100's to a person in British Columbia, and it took as long, or even a bit longer, for it to be delivered to that part of Canada as it did to receive this toy from Siberia.

    Yes. I've had a couple of Nagant revolvers, and still have a 1929 Mosin Nagant rifle, and a quite nice one at that.

    I remember back in the 90s when you could buy three Mosin-Nagant rifles for $99. Overseas suppliers were flooding the international market with pallets of 'em.

    Some gun shops were offering a free M-N rifle with any purchase over $500.

    You could order a couple pairs of Yak-hide boxer shorts.

    Right? And lots of them were unfired and still full of cosmoline type packing grease. That 7.62x54 is a beast of a round.

    They make them out of melted metal from Chernobyl. Does it glow in the dark?
