Sorry for the double-post but this is completely unrelated to the above.
Comrades, I am ready to take the fight to the German and protect the Motherland with my new 1942 Mosin! ...right after I get all the damn cosmoline off of it, that is. The history of this thing amazes me. Entered service in 1891 and is still used in some countries. That's 122 years of military service and counting. Used in over 30 wars by 44 countries, including China, Japan, Israel, the UK, the USA, and obviously USSR/Russia. Over 37mil made. Ridiculous.
I was watching Top Guns, and the Mosin was featured in the first episode. The experts hated it, mainly because you couldn't rapidly shoot a guy running towards you...
