Default Strange Mosin-Nagant Addons

I've looked at this picture for a very long time, and have been wondering what in the world each addon is (besides of course the spike bayonets). I see what look like multiple grenade launchers and two bladed bayonets. The bladed bayonets particularly get my attention, as I really like the look of them on Mosin rifles.

If anyone has any information or knowledge on these rare addons, that would be cool.

As you said the bayonets are obviously bayonets.

What your arrow is pointing at however appears to be Diakanov grenade launcher. Which would be muzzle loaded, the tube was rifled, and had a tripod type mount that was clamped to the forestock. I believe it would have fired the grenade using a blank round like most of the rifle grenade launchers of that time.

As for the other strange things the rocket looking thing is just what it looks like a rocket, the Soviets had a similar rocket type munition fired from a SKS, so its not a stretch to guess that the idea came from the Nagant.

Other than that, your on your own again. PM Bob Marley if you really want to know he seems to know everything about strange gun things.

I phoned a friend about this, the other two cylindrical attachments are just large caliber grenade launchers.
