The book is a significantly expanded, supplemented and revised monograph on the topic of bayonets to the Russian three-line rifle arr. 1891, developed by the outstanding gunsmith of Russia Sergey Ivanovich Mosin.
Significantly increased the number of bayonets shown in the book - in whole, or in fragments - 153 bayonets (in the first book there were 62). The section about the stigma and designations found on bayonets for the Russian three-line rifle has been supplemented, sections showing experimental bayonets, bayonets of arsenals and workshops, surrogate and ersatz bayonets of the First and Second World Wars have been significantly supplemented and expanded. In addition, much attention is paid to the bayonets for the three-ruler, manufactured by other countries. For the first time in the Russian weapons literature, the book pays considerable attention to bayonets manufactured by Finland and Poland. Also shown are bayonets (and, in some cases, rifles and carbines) from other countries, such as Hungary, China, Romania, the USA, France, etc.
This monograph ends with a small but capacious section devoted to additional devices that made it possible to turn a three-line rifle into a full-fledged multifunctional combat complex. These are rifle scissors, mortars, means of silencing the sound of a shot, nozzles for throwing grenades, etc.
The publication is richly illustrated, including unique, previously unpublished photographic materials, the originals of which were specially purchased for this book. In addition, rare book photographs and scans of drawings stored in the archives of the Russian Federation are used in the book.
