    Default Just received Alex's New Book on the War time Mosin Rifles & Carbines

    I just received the new book from Alex's on the War time Mosin/Nagant Rifle & Carbines 1941 - 1945 in the mail today, and it is better then I thought it would be. The text, photos and overall information on the accessories and devices used by these rifles is outstanding. If you have not order this book yet you need to get on the stick and get a copy for your library . The info on the rifle grenades, silencers and the different ammo pouches and scopes are just remarkable. The book is a hardbound and nice slick paper and excellent printed publication. I highly recommend it.

    I hate these threads that start by telling about something truly wonderful, that we all need to see.........and then no link on how to get it.

    What is Alex's last name so that we cannot spend all day on Amazon looking up Mosin books.

    I received my copy today and totally 2nd what Tex said. Just paging through it today I see a good bit of new information. At least to me it is new and no doubt to a lot of the collectors & member here too. Nice Alex - you sure did it up right.
    Now I'm going to have to clean that rifle!!

    Dear Essex:
    No problem, just go to the top of this forum and you will see the information on ordering the book and some pictures of pages of the publication. I think my copy came to about $50.00 including the postage from the Ukraine . The book is in English with a lot of great color pictures of the weapons and all the great accessories.

    I totally agree and so does my nephew who teaches history when I presented him with a copy that I bought just for him. I bought 2, 1 for me and one for him. Alex did a fantastic job on the book!

    Wow, It is great. Good Job Alex. Just read quite a bit, mostly the sniper stuff and skimmed the other stuff to find the sniper stuff. Very interesting, and now we know so much more.

    Hopefully this will smooth the path a bit for an English translation of the newest SVT book. I'm looking forward to receiving my copy of Alex's book.

    I don't think that this book was ever published in English without help of RyanE on non-commercial basis. I would published it at Russian anyway, because it contains big amount of new information, but without his translation it remained among other books at Russian where you can only watch pictures.

    In the pictures on pg. 19 that are dated 1941 are they repairing, disassembling or assembling M91 rifles?

    Sounds like a good next project if he would take it on, even though the records might be a bit more difficult to locate!

    Mine just arrived yesterday as well. I was only about to read the first 25 pages or so. I thought it was interesting that it showed a guy on page 19 with a sight base and leaf pointing the wrong direction from how it should be. I also thought it was interesting how it details the stop gap measure sit moving production to other factories and how they were marked to distinguish them from normal practices.

    Tons of good info in there that you will have to read it 3-4 times, or more, for you to really gain a good understanding of everything that's being written. Personally, it is going to make me look more at the 1941-1942 rifles now!

    It does go slightly into WW1. But for the most part this book is about the 91/30 and carbines. Not the earlier weapons.

    He had a huge undertaking just getting the information for this alone. I can't imagine doing M91s and earlier also where the records are even more sparse.

    ---
    Sounds like RyanE did the translation for this.. if that's so he deserves a big thank you as well!

    Just posted the book up(with authors permission) on my facebook. $30 for a hardback gun book? Dirt Cheap!

    The next project (actually, it's old project that I can't finish for a long time) will be book about Sudaev SMG's in 1942-1945 (PPS-42, PPS-43, and some trial guns). This book will be in Russian

    Got mine from Tex and actually held Dave Phillips rifle that is pictured in the book at the Washington County Fairgrounds gun show yesterday. That was really neat and Joe read the book to me all the way to the show while I drove. We were on the rumble strips a couple of times between the book and the snow which came down. Then he refused to read anymore or was at least hesitant to read. He he! I have had it about 3 days now thanks to Tex and I have not come close to reading it through which to be honest will probably never happen. It is so loaded with information that has me twirling around in space trying to connect things in history and the collection and how it ties in with Kevin Carney's collection my brain is on overload! Alex and Ryan you both did great jobs now if somebody will just translate Drei Linien (Which I got yesterday too, by the way) to English I will be a happy and maybe somewhat more informed man. I also picked up the book on American contracts yesterday along with the new gun values book. This is summer chase facts and needed books time for me and I spent more on books than guns yesterday at the gun show. I knock off gun shows for the summer for the most part and do music and relaxation and organizing things. Thanks again Tex, Alex, and Ryan E! Bill

    "Terror is not a new weapon. Throughout history it has been used by those who could not prevail, either by persuasion or example. But inevitably they fail, either because men are not afraid to die for a life worth living, or because the terrorists themselves came to realize that free men cannot be frightened by threats, and that aggression would meet its own response. And it is in the light of that history that every nation today should know, be he friend or foe, that the United States has both the will and the weapons to join free men in standing up to their responsibilities."
