In the July American Rifleman there is a very interesting article about American made Mosin-Nagants. Seems that Remington and New England Westinghouse Co. both made these rifles for the Russians in WW1. After the Bolshevik Revolution both companies were stuck with several of these guns and our government bought them. These actually saw some combat by Americans in the North Russian Campaign (I never heard of it either!) Anyway, I thought this whole article was very interesting, as I never dreamed that there were any American made Mosins.
