Why is the Mosin Nagant called a 3 line rifle?
In the many forums available regarding collecting rifles there are just as many explanations to this question.
Actually it's old way of measuring the bore - 3 lines = .30” approximately
It was equal to 1/10th of an inch, so 3 line did mean exactly .30
1 line = 2.54 mm or 1/10 inch
Or that the conscript soldier got his rifle in the third line, after clothes and boots.
