MOSIN-NAGANT M1891 (AUSTRIA)
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. The guns went through arsenal repairs/reconditioning or caliber conversion.
The original Russian style socket bayonets were retained wherever possible, but some Austro-Hungarian substitutes were made also, by Wiener-Neustadt armory.
