Wrong ID Sir

Katerina is not a cut-down Mosin-Nagant Model 1891 Infantry Rifle.



She's an upgraded Mosin Nagant Model 1891 Dragoon Rifle; also known as an ex-Dragoon.  The upgrade most likely took place in the late 1960's to early 1970's!  Wow.

This also explains the Chatellerault receiver since by 1922 many older 1891 guns were being broken down and parts recycled back into the production line.

Collecting is fun because you keep learning about the things you collect.
