The rifle is a Mosin Nagant. --Funkychinaman (talk) 12:56, 6 September 2014 (EDT)

Yes, it's M91/30. It's unusually to see a Mosin in a British film, as if they lack Lee-Enfields. Greg-Z (talk) 13:03, 6 September 2014 (EDT)
At the first, I thought, that is a Mosin Nagant rifle, but I think, that Russian rifle can't be seen in the British film. Pyramid Silent (talk) 13:16, 6 September 2014 (EDT)
It's not like they're obscure. At least in the US, you could've bought one for $80 three years ago. (I haven't been to any gun shows lately.) --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:06, 6 September 2014 (EDT)
A large number of M91/30s were sold on civilian market in 1990s-2000s. Maybe British filmmakers found it cheaper than Lee-Enfield. Greg-Z (talk) 14:15, 6 September 2014 (EDT)
They are nowhere near as cheap in the UK as they are in the US, but for here they are still a cheap rifle. You can probably get a good 91/30 for £200-£300. About five years ago my friend got an M44 for something like £250. I think part of the reason they tend to cost more is the fact that on average they are in better condition. As you have to have individual firearms approved for a slot on you firearms certificate people will tend not to go through the hassle for a really beat up rifle that isn't actually worth much (in general I also think that overall British users might take care of their weapons better due to the fact that they are more trouble to get and tend to own fewer separate firearms). I would say that they are no rarer than any other rifle of this sort in the UK, with the exception of the Lee Enfield variants which are relatively abundant for obvious reasons (despite being much more common they probably cost at least twice as much as a Mosin Nagant). I would agree that they do not seem to appear in TV/movies shot in the UK very often, but I think part of the reason is that not much is shot here where their usage would be appropriate. As to why it is used in this particular movie, why is any gun used in any movie? I assume it is either they liked the look of it, it was easily available, or a combination of the two. --commando552 (talk) 20:02, 6 September 2014 (EDT)

So a full length battle rifle of old is a sidearm? Excalibur01 (talk) 22:35, 16 March 2015 (EDT)

Eh, some users are English-challenged. --Funkychinaman (talk) 22:37, 16 March 2015 (EDT)
