The Obrez, Mosin Nagant Pistol that is the most cursed of all guns

Published 2022-07-03
The Obrez is without a doubt one of the worst weapons I have ever handled. It's a Mosin Nagant made into a pistol and was done as a necessity in a time and place where pistols were scarce but a concealable weapon was needed. The results was the most cursed of all guns to have ever been made. Today we review the Obrez.

    I love how the “regular” Mosin has a nice clean sound when fired but the Obrez makes the sound become bass boosted.

    The Obrez isn't cursed, it's just way ahead of it's time... It belongs in the apocalypse.
    They should make a bunch of those if they ever do another Mad Max movie.

    Considering how both the "Completely Ordinary" Mosin, and the Obrez look, I'm realizing that pretty much all sci fi guns like those in Star Wars are little more than extremely cursed regular guns.

    Actually, considering the unstability of this "pistol´s" round, it makes it even more dangerous. It´ll tumble heavily upon impact and would make a lot more damage than just piercing 7.62x54 mm bullet. So from close range this thing would chop down any man. And even when hitting an arm or leg, it´d be "game over" in first shot.

    Obrez literally means "cut", this word is usually used to describe shotgun/rifle with a cut barrel (shorter than the original for close combat I assume). Usually in movies they just take a regular rifle or double barreled one and cut it by hand and go kill zombies, but this think looks like a Star Wars blaster.

    "Let's see how a bullet looks fired through a regular Mosin." Proceeds to pull out a scoped meth lab.

    Loved the jump cut while “praising” the AFT. Love those guys and their infinite wisdom!

    Fun fact: During the Russian revolution during WW1, most rebels needed to conceal rifles from the Russian army but were unable due to their size. Although pistols could be easily concealed, there were often difficult to come by. In order to combat this, the Obrez “pistol” was made with a sawed off barrel and a pistol grip so the weapon could more easily be concealed. This weapon was never really used beyond trench raiding and revolutions due to its ineffective range from its shortened barrel length.
  • "A shortened Mosin Nagant intended for use by revolutionaries and insurgents. Inaccurate, but instantly kills with headshots."

    You know, looking at the recoil in slow-motion it just occurred to me that fitting that thing with an ergonomic revolver grip would probably make all the difference in the world.

    I've waited a decade to see someone shoot an Obrez, and I was both disappointed and impressed at the same time. I was expecting a wrist breaker but it seems incredibly manageable, if not fun

    Man I remember this thing from Battlefield 1, I think that game introduced me to a lot of new cool guns made in those days.
  • Zero Dark
    That cinematic opening makes the Obrez seem like an ancient accursed weapon used to brutalize time-traveling evil, which it is
  • wurmturm
    therefore, the Obrez is superior to a regular Mosin due to its capability of performing black magic
  • Dr. Garandthumb is like that guy that tells you what weapon you're using for training, but you can't skip the dialogue before the cutscene.

    1:46 Wow. You can actually see the muzzle flash rotate. I thought at first it was a solid ring, but the flash definitely corkscrews. I assume it's because the barrel is so short relative to the power of the round used.

    Glad it got to you safely! Enjoy, and congrats on 2 Million 😘

    I would imagine that wound channel would be really severe, given the instability and tendency of the lower velocity and destabilized round to tumble. Probably would be decent weapon at close range, at least in terms of lethality. Obviously the accuracy suffers, but if you're shooting at shotgun ranges, it'd probably get the job done relatively reliably.
