They may not have been Importing MOSIN back then, A Lot of Mosins were made here in the United States and then shipped to RUSSIA. Then when the 1917 revolution broke out American Arms manufacturers were stuck with thousands that were in the pipeline to go to Russia.. The Government stepped in and purchase the guns, to prevent the gun manufactures from losing big bucks. So those Mosins went into US Inventory as a training rifle. The one you purchased may have been an US Surplus rifle.. Or an overrun from the manufacturer..
