Mosin –Nagant rifles were developed at Tula by Sergi Mosin. The feed system was developed by Leon Nagant.

They were manufactured by Russia as well as Remington, Westinghouse, and Chatellerault. They have a box magazine that holds five shots of 7.62x54mm rimmed ammunition. Barrel was 31.6 inches long with a leaf rear sight. Stocks were made from walnut and were made without upper hand guards until after post 1908 when hand guards were added as well as sling swivels mounted through slots in the butt.

Mostly during 1915 Austro-Hungarian forces on the Eastern front captured sizable quantities of Russian Mosin Nagant M1891 rifles, and also received large numbers taken by the Germans.

When supplies begun to run short, more than 50,000 guns were converted (rebored or rebarreled) in the Wiener-Neustadt armory for the standard rimmed M93 8x50mm Austrian round. epetier-Gewehr'.
