Remington Nagant Bolt-Action Carbine Rifle | M1891 | 30-06 Springfield
You are considering a vintage Remington Nagant Bolt-Action Carbine Rifle that is chambered for 30-06 Springfield ammunition. This is one of the rifles made by Remington for Russia during the early parts of the 20th century. Most of these rifles were never shipped to Russia and were bought by the United States government for training purposes and to avoid Remington and Westinghouse going bankrupt thanks to the Bolsheviks reneging on their contracts. This particular rifle is in good shape for its age but has some peculiarities about it. The barrel has been cut down and re-lathed to make it shorter — it measures 22.25-inches in length and includes a blade front sight and original rear ladder sight. The bore is bright and shiny with strong rifling, it would shoot well. The wood stock is in excellent condition with no major damage to note — no deep cuts, gouges, or cracks — just a few scuffs and minor dents. The rifle’s action cycles, ejects, and locks uptight.
This rifle has two serial numbers — The Buttplate Serial # is: 537893 and the bolts serial number is: 1251688
