100 years of Red Army: Mosin–Nagant Single-Shot Rifle

The serious lack of arms for the troops caused by heavy defeats and losses in 1941 gave birth to different solutions. A simplified single-shot rifle based on the 1891/30 Mosin–Nagant three-line rifle system was one of the proposals for promptly supplying the troops with rifles. This rifle required significantly less time and metal for manufacturing, which meant that it could be issued to the troops faster and in greater numbers than a conventional rifle, and could also be given to 'second echelon' units like security, patrol and training units. Fortunately, intensive industrial efforts solved the problem of rifle scarcity without such extreme measures and this sample remained a prototype.
