Russian Rifles

Russian Rifles are extremely popular in the United States. Regardless of the design or the time period of the weapon, Russian rifles tend to be built like tanks and as reliable as a hammer. Russian rifles are also often very affordable and imported en masse to the United States. Russian weapons have never been especially graceful or handsome weapons, but they have proven capable of lasting lifetimes.

Rifles including the Mosin Nagant and SKS are often imported in their original military configurations, much to the joy of Russian rifle collectors. Russian rifles are typically designed to be pragmatic, easy to use, and low maintenance.

The AK-47, AKM, and AK-74 semi-automatic clones are the second-most popular style of semi-automatic rifle in the United States. The Saiga rifle series is a line of high-quality Russian AK rifles that is extremely popular among Russian rifle enthusiasts.


Quick Facts

  • Importation of Saiga rifles was halted by an executive order in 2014, an action which has driven up demand significantly
  • The vast majority of Mosin Nagants are Russian, but they were produced by a wide variety of countries including China, the United States, and Finland
  • The AK-47 and AKM are often confused. The majority of AK rifles are AKMs due to their stamped receivers. AK-47s were only produced for a short time
