[NRA Show 2019] Keystone Sporting Arms Mini Mosin Nagant

A lot of cool and interesting pieces were recently announced at the NRA Annual Meetings 2019 in Indianapolis this past weekend. One of the absolute stand-outs was the Keystone Sporting Arms (KSA) Mini Mosin Nagaint .22 Long Rifle youth rifle. This military surplus rifle is period correct and perfect to train a younger shooter on a nostalgic piece without the recoil of the traditional 7.62x54R cartridge.

At the moment we know that the MSRP is going to be $399 for these rifles and they are hopefully going to be available soon. Other than that, Keystone Sporting Arms does not have a specification sheet for us to glean over at the moment. They do provide a comment from their website that provides a little more information for us to go off of:

A miniature .22lr version of the classic Mosin-Nagant 91/30 Rifle used by the Russians in WWII. It is the first of a series of ‘Mini Mil-Surp’ rifles, a collection of five WWI and WWII rifles scaled down for Youth shooters and chambered in America’s sweetheart, the .22lr cartridge. Now kids can shoot their own version of Mom and Dad’s cool military firearms!

The KSA 91/30 has a 20 inch barrel, precision-machined to ensure the durability and accuracy that is normally reserved for the ‘big guns.’ The action is based on the proven, safe, single-shot Crickett design and has a straight-handled bolt, just like the original Mosins.

An interesting opportunity that Keystone Sporting Arms provided people who came to visit their booth was not only a chance to win one of these, but also decide the next rimfire military surplus firearm that would be produced. If you happened to make it into their booth during the NRA Show, you could fill out one of these forms seen below and win your very own Mini Mosin Nagant .22 Long Rifle:

Another “show only” opportunity people had who paid their booth a visit was the ability to buy a Limited Edition Mini Mosin where you would receive it in a wood crate, and you could also pick your own serial number! These Limited Edition rifles were limited to 500 and surely sold out fast.

The sights are also copies of the originals (scaled down, of course) and the walnut stock and barrel even have ‘proof’ stamps and markings. The first 500 pre-orders will come with a custom wooden crate with matching serial numbers, a sling, a certificate of authenticity, selection of your own serial number and more. We will contact you via email or phone to confirm FFL shipping information.
