Default Mosin-Nagant being used on "Life Below Zero"



Advertise Here

Have any of you caught this show & noticed the frequency & regularity with which a female Native-American, Agnes Hailstone, brings down caribou with her Mosin-Nagant?

I have NO idea what she's using for hunting ammo but there seems to be no discernible recoil coming from that old 91/30 & she's quite the petite woman.
Considering their spartan, low-budget subsistence-hunting lifestyle, I'm going to venture a guess that it's good old ComBloc military surplus.

Kinda makes one proud to own one of these crusty old brutes.

Her husband is a member here on SB. http://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...d.php?t=302243 His Member name is Caribou. He will probably chime in and tell you what kind of ammo they are using. I seen her using a Finn Model 39 to shoot a Caribou.
I never thought that the Mosin/Nagant kicked all that bad. No more than any other military rifle in it's class. It's all in how you hold them.

I have read a few of his adventures up north on another forum, and found them very interesting.

You might find the below vid interesting as well...... (Mosin vs Siberian bear)

I've watched every episode, Hailstones an Wiseman are my favorites, Agnes is a dang good shot with that Mosin. I been keeping up with them on other forms too. I got one Mosin barrel looks like a sewer pipe but its shoots true.

I haven't see the show yet but I had a buddy tell he about it and he said they used a mosin but was unsure which one. I will have to find it and catch up so I know.

Try foaming brake cleaner. Put a rag in the muzzle and spray it in from the breech. Suspend/lean it muzzle-end down for an hour, then start cleaning.

I laughed when an old geezer gave me this advice, but was shocked to find that not a single one of my Mosins had a "sewer pipe" bore, or even the "dark, shootable bore," that is always advertised, but that all had bright bores with relatively crisp rifling.

Exclamation

In one Episode, in a Shot of her aiming, the Negative is flipped, making it appear as though she is holding a Left-Handed Bolt Mosin.

All I can say is she is way to proficient with that Ulu, I bet she could peel your skin one layer at a time. I wish I could make as fast a job out of skinning as she does.

Don't to jack the tread but any suggestions on where to find foaming break cleaner? I looked online at different auto parts stores they don't list any foaming break cleaner.

Have watched every episode, big fan of the show. Specially like the young man Wiseman and the large family Hailstones. The lady at the outpost seems a little bit of a drama queen but not to the point of reaching for the remote.
On the rust thing, from an old geezer, its hard to beat good ole turpentine.
