    Mosin-Nagant. May be a dumb question but I have heard different people say it different ways. How do you say it?

    From the 7.62x54r.net FAQ:


    Q. How do you pronounce "Mosin Nagant"?
    A. MO-seen Nah-GON

    It’s pretty much the consensus.

    “Izhevsk” is the word I’ll never be able to pronounce. :eek:
