Mosin Nagant M1891
Most rifles in the series are Mosin Nagant M1891 rifles with removed magazines. The reason of such conversion is unclear; possibly they were were intended to stand for Berdan Rifles. Some rifles appear to be full-length Infantry model while some other seem to be shorter. These guns are used by Russian gendarmes and soldiers, abreks, notably Akhmat (Igor Slobodskoy), and peasants from Asker's village Ismail (Givi Jajanidze), Daniyal (Boris Kuliev) and Musa (Taubiy Miziyev).
