Marks Introduction
Mosin Nagant Virtual Museum
Mosin Nagant Theories, Opinions, and Observations


The purpose of this page is to illustrate a combination of markings found on Mosin Nagant rifles that are not yet fully understood. The rifles are commonly known as "MO marked" by collectors. The markings consist of the initials "MO" and one, in some cases two, two digit numbers added after the original manufacture date. The "MO" and the added numbers may or may not be related. The markings are found on M91/30, M38, M44, and M91/59 Mosin Nagants and M1895 Nagant revolvers. Two captured Mauser 98k rifles with an MO mark has been observed. No other models of Mosin Nagants or SVTs have been observed with the marks. One TT-33 has surfaced that has second date and a very faint mark that is believed to be an MO.

MO is known to be the Russian abbreviation for "Ministerstvo Oborony", or Ministry of Defense. The Defense Ministry was established on March 15th, 1953 in a merger of the Military and Naval Ministries (Voennoe Ministerstvo, Voenno-Morskoe Ministerstvo, "BM" and "BMM"). The numbers are thought to represent dates because of their placement and the fact that they are always larger than the previous date. However, all the known dates are between 1942 and 1953 when there was no MO except for the last nine and a half months of 1953. There are a few known firearms with double dates that lack the MO mark, but they are the rare exception. Likewise, few MO marked firearms without a second date have been reported. There is an obvious relationship between the date and MO marks yet just as obvious a conflict with the establishment of the MO and the dates.

Based on information from sources in the former Soviet Union the MO marked firearms were used by the Defense Ministry Militarized Security force, or "Voenizirovannaya Ohrana MO", abbreviated VOHR MO. Those are not per se troops, but security guards employed by the MO. They wore military uniforms with special insignia of position (not rank insignia) and were separate from the army. These units were used to guard various MO facilities.

It is possible that the date markings were placed on the firearms at the time of transfer from the army proper to the security force of some forerunner of the MO. These marks may also be unrelated to the MO mark. The MO mark itself is thought to have been placed on the firearms after March 15th, 1953, either at the time of transfer from regular army stocks or to mark all VOHR firearms. The practice of applying the MO mark probably ended before 1959 as few M1891/59 Mosins are known to have the MO mark. However, only a small percentage of the rifles in Russian arsenals have been imported to the US so the statistical sample is small. These theories have not been confirmed and are being researched at this time.

If you have an MO marked firearm that you would like to have included on this page with a credit, please send the information to 7.62x54r@7.62x54r.net Include the model, arsenal, original date, MO dates and any other unusual features in the text of the e-mail. Refer to the 7.62x54r.net Submittal Guidelines for information on contributing photographs to this page. Thank you in advance for your contribution.
