Some time ago I started a database about the Mosin Nagant sniper rifle, with the purpose to
to determine what cyrillic letter prefixes were assigned.

Now I have several serial numbers of known genuine snipers, ex-snipers, restored ex-sniper etc.
I want to continue this research and to further his study your help and input is appreciated.

The information being gathered is only for known genuine snipers, in either ex-sniper, restored ex-sniper, or original unrestored configuration.
Please do not include "fake" snipers.

The informations I need are:

-What kind of sniper rifle is. (PE top mount, PEM side rail, PU)

-Production year of rifle

-Arsenal that made the rifle

-Rifle serial number (with all prefixes)

-Scope number or numbers on the barrel shank if available.

-Peculiarity of the rifle ( es. DDR marked,double/triple dated MO, Finn capture, Polish reworked rifle etc.)

Pics are welcome. If you can't take some pics, there's no problem.

No records are kept linking names to arms.


You can send me a PM trough gunboards.com or you can send me an email at:
[email protected]


Yor help is very appreciated.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Warmest regards.

Cyrillic to English

Use this site guys. You can look up the letters and see what the english ones would be, also you can just type in with the English keyboard ad get Russian letters.

n10sivern,
Thanks again!

Yes, I'm doing some researches about hungarian 91/30 sniper rifles and czech vz54 also. ( and all the Mosin Nagant sniper rifles, such the various finn models, the rare zg 51-91-30 (obtained from Soviet 91/30 sniper rifles), the recent vz 54/90 etc...)

The Hungarian m52 used only one prefix, "BC", but I found some intresting differences between the serial number sequence. So please, send me your numbers.
Also I found some very intresting new features on these beatiful Hungarian made sniper rifles...but this is another story that I'll post on this forum one day....

Also the vz54 SN is welcome!!!!


Warmest regards.
