Russian 1899 Finned Tula

Historical war rifle with barrel shanks marking indicating association of the Tula Arsenal.
This item is currently listed on our Gunbroker, with some cosmetic aging damage.
1899 Finned Tula, perfect for any collection.

The arsenal marks of Mosin Nagants are found on the barrel just forward of the top of the receiver and right behind the rear sight. These marks indicate the arsenal the weapon was produced in and have changed over the years. In addition to arsenal marks, you will find other marks or stampings. These include the date, serial number and property marks as well as various acceptance and proof marks. I have not been able to locate an authoritative resource for identifying the acceptance and proof marks as it appears, that individual armorers and inspectors used their own unique stamps in many cases.
The Mosin enjoys a rich history from its beginnings in 1891 right up to today. It is a history shrouded in politics, intrigue and terror as much as it was a symbol of patriotism and the struggle against tyranny. This rifle has seen the fall of governments and events that shaped world history and is still very much a part of the events that shape our world today.

1865 Spencer Burnside Carbine

This 1865 Spencer Burnside Carbine is one of the Military acceptance rifles. This Particular one is Unfired & in Perfect Condition!
Both Spencer and Burnside carbines were manufactured by the Burnside Rifle Company. Spencer-manufactured models featured six-groove rifling, while those made under contract by Burnside in 1865, as well as post-war armory conversions, used three-groove rifling. Spencer carbines came into use in mid-1863 and by war’s end, they had become established as the dominant cavalry arm of the Union Army. Spencers continued to see action on the frontier during the Indian Wars. After the Civil War, Spencers were armory-modified from their original .52 caliber to accept .50 caliber ammunition. The design for a magazine-fed, lever-operated rifle chambered for the .56-56 Spencerrimfire cartridge was completed by Christopher Spencer in 1860. Called the Spencer Repeating Rifle, it was fired by cocking a lever to extract a used case and feed a new cartridge from a tube in the buttstock. Like most firearms of the time, the hammer had to be manually cocked in a separate action before the weapon could be fired. The Spencer repeating rifle was first adopted by the United States Navy, and subsequently adopted by the United States Army, and used during the American Civil War, where it was a popular weapon. The Confederates occasionally captured some of these weapons and ammunition, but, as they were unable to manufacture the cartridges because of shortages of copper, their ability to take advantage of the weapons was limited. The Spencer showed itself to be very reliable under combat conditions, with a sustainable rate-of-fire in excess of 20 rounds per minute. Compared to standard muzzle-loaders, with a rate of fire of 2–3 rounds per minute, this represented a significant tactical advantage. Many Spencer carbines were later sold as surplus to France where they were used during the Franco-Prussian War in 1870

US Model Krag Jargenson 1896

“US Model 1896 Cal 30-40 Krag Mfg 1896-1898.”

The Krag–Jørgensen is a repeating bolt action rifle designed by the Norwegians Ole Herman Johannes Krag and Erik Jørgensen in the late 19th century. It was adopted as a standard arm by Denmark, the United States of America and Norway. About 300 were delivered to Boer forces of the South African Republic. A distinctive feature of the Krag–Jørgensen action was its magazine. While many other rifles of its era used an integral box magazine loaded by a charger or stripper clip, the magazine of the Krag–Jørgensen was integral with the receiver (the part of the rifle that houses the operating parts), featuring an opening on the right hand side with a hinged cover. Instead of a charger, single cartridges were inserted through the side opening, and were pushed up, around, and into the action by a spring follower.


  • Barrel Length: 20 inches
  • caliber:30-40 Krag
  • Finish:wood
