Sawn-off Mosin-Nagant M91/30 rifle with SKS rifle grenade launcher, AK-series pistol grip and Burris red dot sight. 7,62x54mmR 5-round internal box magazine, bolt action. I’m ashamed to say it but I kind of like it, it’s like taking a modern compact gun and replacing everything modern with old wood and steel. Plus come on it’s a Mosin-Nagant who cares if it’s defaced, you can get 5 for 3 at Walmart.
Russian double-barreled grenade launcher with a very specific purpose. It uses unique depth charge style grenades designed for use against swimmers/combat divers. The FG-45 round seen in the top photo is the fragmentation grenade which detonates at a particular depth. The SG-45 round is a signal flare meant to mark the enemy swimmer/diver’s last location. It’s intended areas of use are aboard boats and submarines that have surfaced. (GRH)
Line infantry uniform featuring the capote et pantalon Mle1914/15 greatcoat and pants cut from horizon blue wool, along with the standard webbing, pouches, M2 gas mask transit tin, haversack and of course the Mle1915 Adrian helmet. The accompanying Lebel rifle is fitted with a tromblon Vivien-Bessiere grenade launcher. The number of grenadiers per company kept increasing from the initial eight soldiers from 1916 to the end of the war, and were used as indirect fire infantry support either from the trenches or during an assault. The device was usually fired with the rifle resting on the ground at a 60 degrees angle, but could be fired from the shoulder in a pinch.
