The Russkis sent a female "sniper" to the rifle factory at Enfield shortly after WW2. It turned out she new nothing about rifles or how to use one. She was a substitute, probably a commie trusted to travel abroard.

Roza Yegorovna Shanina she was very good with sniping she was in the 184th Red Banner Rifle Division She was responsible for 54 confirmed kills, including 12 enemy snipers, during the Battle of Vilnius biggrin
The weapon she is holding is an 1891-30 Mosin-Nagant, 7.62mm, bolt-action. It can hold two rounds in the internal chamber below the receiver as well as one in the breech. Hers is the sniper version, in which the bolt is angled downwards so it doesn't interfere with the telescopic sight; most had straight bolts.

I have one too!

(unfortunately deactivated).

The one Jude Law uses in 'Enemy at the Gates' does not appear to be a sniper version as it has the straight bolt.

Just want to add that it is the 7.62x54R cartridge, not the more common 7.62x39 as found in the AK47 and its variants. It is a fearsome gun with a kick that will break your shoulder off, so the fact that she was able to not only handle it but master it is a feat in its own.

The rifle ain't so bad, the carbine is a little bh.
The Rifle she is holding in a Tokarev SVT-40 a semi- auto rifle introduced into USSR service in 1938, it was chambered in the 7.62 X 54R standard issue cartridge of the day. There were sniper variants produced in this design with a 3.5X PU scope. they were effective infantry rifles however they were frequently disadvantaged by vertical shot dispersion making them unsuitable as a sniper rifle and they were withdrawn as sniper rifles in 1942.
As to being a "fearsome gun with a kick that will break your shoulder off", the persons who suffered from this shoulder destroying performance of this cartridge must have had weakened biology compared to modern man. The 7.62 X 54R in the Moisten-Nagant (bolt-action) or Tokarev rifle, (semi-auto), developed about 19 to 20 foot pounds free recoil, approximately the same as the SMLE 303 MkVII.
This sort of recoil of course is made to feel worse on your shoulder & cheek when coupled with poor stock design which a lot of military rifle designs suffered from.
A Winchester 300 Magnum has a free recoil of about 40 - 45 foot pounds in a modern sporting rifle.
The 500 Jeffery (or Schuler), which was for a time the most powerful bolt action production rifle in the world has a free recoil of 105 foot pounds in a 12 pound rifle.
