Yup, the aftermath of the Gun Industry Bailout of 1918, when the Feds bought a bunch of Mosins they didn’t like to save Remington and Westinghouse when those pesky Bolsheviks refused to pay up.
On another note, I would like to congratulate Cyrus for willing our Mosin-Nagant Timney Trigger Giveaway! He will be using the trigger in a 1928 Ishevsk.
Thanks to everyone who emailed me an entry – we had great participation. If you’re not Cyrus, you should definitely condsider picking up one of the triggers anyway – you won’t regret the improvement in your Mosin.
