Cossack Survey and Data


I took the time to sift through all 359 search results of the word "Cossack" here in The Collector's Forum. Thirty-nine examples were initially identified. I have sorted them out by model, year, serial, owner, and made notes when information is available. Only examples that could be verified by pictures or, when pics were no longer available, by confirmation of members of The Collector's Forum are included.

A few examples were also found on 7.62X54r.net, and The Russian Mosin Nagant Forum

The list is by no means inclusive, exclusive, complete, or anything like gospel. But it is fairly well established from 2007 to present. As you read this list, you may find errors, omissions, duplicates, or monkeys in a barrel - I hope not. I do hope you find it informative, if not intriguing.

I don't know how to create a data-base template, so please accept my lame table and the use of excessive punctuation.

Please bring any discrepancies or new information to light, and I will edit the list. In the mean time, thanks for looking.

Saw this one at the Louisville Gun Show on 3/1/14. Price was $995 so I passed. It had no crossbolt.
Every time I come here, this post makes me want to throw up on myself.

FYI... there is a second Ka3 marked St. Petersburg Cavalry Carbine. It is located in the Netherlands.

This one is selling tomorrow. I was hoping it would get overlooked due to poor photos, but it's pretty hard to get a Mosin that other collectors don't find as well. It's a 1912 that was converted to a 91/38. Serial number is 42939. Auction pics below.

I have a Finn “matched” 1917 Tula/Peter the Great Factory M91 Rifle with a KA3 marked rear sight.

I know that being it’s a Finn M91, it’s an amalgamation of parts, but found this thread and figured I would contribute my info anyway.

This rifle has a bolt and magazine assembly Finn force matched to the barrel serial number, bo two piece Finn Stock, SA stamp on barrel, KA3 stamp on the rear sight leaf.

I assume since this is not an Izhevsk made M91 and since it’s a Finn refurb, there is not much info to glean from it, but found it interesting nonetheless.

Cheers!

That is gorgeous. I will grab an occasional mauser based solely on how attractive the crest is. That one would qualify easily and nudge out a couple of my nice mauser crests. .
