      Oh woe, I'd have to sell my motorcycles, maybe even all of them, before I would ever be allowed to buy a T-34. I'm sure the tank would be a lot more fun in traffic, though I'm just as sure it gets really poor mileage. I wonder how much my insurance company would want for collision coverage?

      I still want one.

        Do you really need collision coverage for a 29 ton tank? I doubt there's anything on the road that could even scratch you, unless your neighbor just bought a Panther.

          The Czar approved this final design and it was formally adopted as "7.62mm magazinnaya vintovka sistemi Mosina obrazets 1891-ogo goda" (note: "Nagant" does not appear anywhere in the official designation). However, in the West, it has been always called the 'Mosin Nagant' and I suspect it likely always will.
          Sorry, but more corrections.
          Initially it was called :
          «Трехлинейная винтовка образца 1891 года»
          «Тrehlinejnaja vintovka obrazca 1891 goda»
          (in short "трехлинейка" - trexlinejka.) ,
          because Mosin had used french Lebel rifle as a prototype of his rifle.
          Mosin's name started to appear in the rifle identification much later
          in soviet period.

          The rifle was a team work.
          Bolt and extractor ( отсечкa-отражатель - consider the main Mosin's accomplishment ) - Mosin

          ## 7 and 8.

          Ammo and barrel - Colonel Rogovtsev,
          Colonel Petrov and Capitan ("штабс-капитан") Savostianov.

            I want to buy one of each on that list but my government thinks that if i have a t-34 i will rob a bank or try to blow up the president, so theyre going to either charge me 1,000,000.00$ or let me buy it then throw me in jail, confiscate the tank and use it for target practice for their m1 abrahams tanks.
            So instead i got this just recently

            Now here is one freedom we have in the UK that you guys dont....

            Tanks are road legal
            Who we are is but a stepping stone to what we may become.

              So you can own tanks but not automatic weapons?

                Yep, well theoretically in Sweden you can own a automatic weapon, but the paper work would scare even a hardened Russian bureaucrat.

                  Mosin is a famous Russian/Soviet rifle of WWI - Civil War - WWII.

                  And I suppose that all is working...
                  This may help.
