What is my Mosin Nagant Worth?

Designed by Captain Sergei Mosin and Emile Nagant, the Mosin-Nagant is one of the most iconic rifles of the World War era. Designed in 1891, the Mosin-Nagant was the primary firearm of Imperial Russian and Soviet forces during the First and Second World War. At 37,000,000 units produced in Russia and the Soviet Union, the Mosin-Nagant is one of the most mass produced firearms in history. The Mosin has continued to find service in war well into the 21st century finding action in the Syrian Civil War and conflicts in the Ukraine.

Historical Context

The Mosin-Nagant has had a fairly diverse production not only among COMBLOC nations but Western Nations as well. Russian membership in the Triple Entente caused the firearm to be produced by Remington, New England Westinghouse and Manufacture Nationale d’Armes de Chatellerault as well as the Russian manufacturers Tula and Izhevsk. Multiple COMBLOC nations produced the Carbine variants after the Second World War. Values generally depend on which nation produced them. From humble Warsaw Pact copies to the more rare Russian sniper variants, Mosin-Nagants vary greatly in value.

Determining Value

A major factor in determining value for any firearm comes from the condition of the gun. If it is in mint condition with little finish wear from handling, the gun can retain a good portion of its retail value. If more usage is apparent and the gun has scuffs, dents or scratches, the value will lower with each imperfection. Same goes with the metal parts, the more scratches and faded bluing finish that becomes present on the gun from handling and usage can greatly diminish its value. The takeaway is that as the condition of the firearm worsens, the less it will be worth when re-sold.

Another factor that contributes to a re-sale value are accessories that come with the gun. Please note that as a collectors piece, the value of Mosin-Nagant rifles are greater if they retain the original finish as well as the original bayonet. Another nuance is whether all the parts of the firearm have matching serial numbers. Please note that aftermarket chassis systems do not always add to the value of the firearm. If the firearm stock has been “sporterized” the value will greatly decrease.
