Lookin good! Wish I picked at least one of those up when they was still affordable. I'm just glad I have my one 91/59. Paid I think around $250 years back. Crazy what the prices are on these things now.

I only own one, a 1946 Izhevsk, but I love it above & beyond all of my other hunting rifles (a .270 & three 30-06 Winchester Model 70s & a Winchester Model 94).

The M44 is the straight shooter, with iron sights, that always brings home the bacon. That 7.62x54R cartridge smacks down feral hogs like the planet has been pulled out from under them.

And, oh yeah, the spike bayonet comes in VERY handy when I walk up on them & have to poke to make sure they're not playing possum.

That's the only one I still have. Mines a 1945 Tula nonrefurb and it's a straight shooter with an excellent trigger. I paid 75 big ones about ten years ago. I've put more new production 54r through it than what I paid for the rifle. I honestly don't know how much surplus I've put through it or the og soldiers before me.

Nice M44 group^^^^^^

I always liked the Mosin Nagant short rifles and collected them some years ago. The prices did go up a good bit.
I was able to get the Russian years of production., 1943-1948 and the various., Chinese, Romanian, Hungarian, Yugoslavian variants and the dual date MO, 91/59 and 91/38.
Still like and shoot them.
Doesn't take too many rounds to get your fill of shooting one though., compared to AK recoil etc.

I've got a 1955 all matching counter-bored Romanian and the wife has a 1946 mix-master non-counter-bored Izhevsk refurb.

Back in the days of unlimited cheap surplus x54, we used to spend hours at the range vaporizing water filled milk jugs with those things. Good times.

Sold one of my 91/30's to my brother and in a couple weeks will be getting the 1955 Romanian from my co-worker with 2 paper pouches of ammo for $250. M44's are addictive....well hell all Mosins are addictive to own

The carbine length mosins are fun as hell, and the fireball thrown off is always cool.


they have seriously climbed in price.

Wish i had gotten one when they were cheaper. I just have two 91/30's (one bubba'd). I think i like the handiness of the shorter bubba'd one, sure id like a factory shorty.
