Head-head challenge: Mosin vs. Mauser (VIDEO)

Alex and Miles over at TFB TV pit a pair of veteran European bolt-action rifles against each other to find out which will prevail– Mauser or Mosin.

In the challenge is a 114-year old Gew 98 and a 72-year-old Mosin-Nagant 91/30 tested on accuracy, rate of fire and everyone’s favorite battlefield drill: walking fire.

Now of course, it would be better if you could get a WWI-era Fritz and a WWII-era Ivan to work the bolts, but you get the idea.

Which would you place your money on?
