"This is a really good book. It's an easy read and a good overview of the history of the Mosin Nagant rifle. It's not a technical manual, its not full of technical details and descriptions of features, but it's a good overview of the rifle and how it developed."
Bill - 4.0 out of 5 stars

"This is a very good explanation of the Mosin Nagant pedigree. This is not a book full of technical data, but more about the history of the rifle. An interesting read, especially if you own a Mosin. If you do own a Mosin Nagant, enjoy firearms and history then I recommend this book. Helpful."
