    Default Cossacks - Double the Trouble

    So this just happened...

    Early flat sight leaf Cossack (mismatched) AND an all original matching Cossack (Deutsches Reich marked stock)

    That makes a total of 9 Каз marked rifles in the display crate.

    Some have been repurposed into other models.

    5 - in original model configuration (2 Finned examples included)
    3 -Model 91/38s
    1 - St. Petersburg Cavalry Carbine

    Still need a Каз marked 91/30....



    Thank you so much to the board member who made this possible and for everyone who has helped me over the last few years learn and grow as a collector.

    Even with my infrequent visits to the Collector's Forum, it's clear to me that you have a special affinity for the Cossack rifles. Congratulations not only on the latest acquisitions, but for staying focused on collecting a specific and challenging niche within this family of weapons.

    I'm looking for pre-war Yugoslav Mauser bolt number 36455. If you have it, let me know! I'll pay a finder's fee on top of the selling price.

    Wow. Not sure how else to say it haha. What a focus on a particular rifle. That Dragoon Cossack mark or not is one I'd love to get hold of! Congrats.

    Yup, those are some nice ones. I get lucky on occasion but so far no 1907 Carbine or Cossacks have found me. Seriously what a nice collection, those two pictured are awesome. Regards or Egads, John.

    I sold my all original matching Model 1907 to help close the gap and finish paying for these, Handsome Devil. That hurt. Like really, really hurt, but it went to a fantastic home and I know the new owner will care for it well. He and I started collecting at the same time and we both love Imperial era Mosins. That shared focus has put us in intense competition with each other numerous times but we have managed to become friends as well and help each other when we can.

    He and guys like Vic and USMCSean and Martin08 have been such fantastic people to get to know along the way and they and many others have helped me so much.

    I am so happy with these guns. I hope one day to be able to go overseas and track down some Cossack rifles still in the hands of true Cossacks... what an amazing trip that would be...

    Someday...

    Incredible. I am by no means a real Mosin fanatic, but I have examined literally hundreds of M1891's and seen exactly one Cossack marked piece back when I really hadn't figured things out. Myself and another guy bought it for $100 and immediately sold it to the tune of $225......sigh.

    I have only found one in the wild where the seller was clueless as to what he had. Every single Mosin I come across gets checked. That is thousands of Mosins at this point. Locally. When I travel. At gunshows. All the rest came from other collectors except one that sold at auction but was not described as a Cossack.
