View Full Version : Nagant dating.

November 12, 2005, 08:08 PM
I just bought a Mosing Nagant Karbine (and a unissued yugo sks) And was wondering if some one could help me date the nagant.

The serial begins with what looks like this:

Fear my wicked paint skills! sorry couldnt be arsed to open PSP

So it goes the image above: B4933.

Any idea, will there be a date on the rifle or can some one help from the serial, I have had no time to look at it as my dad locked it up.

:eek: :eek: :eek:
I like my rifles too but I wouldn't ever try to date one of them. Even if it was possible, and no it's not possible even with the 12 ga. Shame on you, no wonder your dad locked it up.

LoL Some one said the date is stamped near the rear site never bothered looking :D

Will it be there :confused: Some people on here have them and was just asking if theres were dated etc.

I can kinda guess it would be hard to date them too :p

This site helped me to trace the arsenal and determine than my M44 was a war-time issue: http://www.russian-mosin-nagant.com/arsenalmarks.htm

I never seen MN that didn't have the date stamped on top of the barrel between the bolt and the rear sight. Good luck!

Did the Yugo ahve the log book? If so, it has the exact date it was made.
