Default Value of Polish M44

I have an unissued Polish M44 without a flaw on the wood or metal that I was planning to sell. I checked GB sold and listing prices. Wow, the prices sure have dropped in the past two years. I guess I shouldn't have waited so long to list it. Guess I will hang on to it and hope prices go back up on it.

Prices look real good to me - $800-$900 for unissued rifles

These "unissued" rifles sure do look a lot like what we were buying in the early 1980's that were sold as "arsenal refinished" rifles. Are they the same items but with a new different terminology that commands a higher price?

Arsenal refinished back then were reblued with newer replacement stocks. Then they cosmoline coated and pack away for future use which never happened.

I believe that you're thinking about the Russian guns. That is very typical of them. A large quantity of the Polish rifles were indeed unissued and came into the country as so. They're very desirable due to this and absolutely gorgeous to see in person.

What price are you speaking of as "dropped price"? No context to your post.

Got mine 10 years ago @ $300. That was a pretty penny for a Mosin back then, you could still grab a nice Russian M44 for $100. And Romanian and Hungarian were around $150

They have more than doubled at least

My Polish M44 WAS unfired... $350 about 4 years ago. Prices have certainly climbed.

Prices go up. Prices come down. I paid $350 for my Polish Mosin carbine too. In mint, unissued condition, in cosmoline and brown wax paper, right out of the wooden crate.

That purchase was in 1982.

Supply and demand compounded by federal and international law, the Dole Amendment, the fall of communism, inflation and countless other factors and happenstances have all affected the prices of the guns we covet and discuss here.

My advice, after well more than forty years of doing this, is not to worry about the small stuff or a few dollars lost. Buy what you love, in the best condition possible at the best price you can negotiate. But once again, donít lose sleep agonizing over pocket money. Focus on the joy of acquisition, the joy of possessing these old guns, and build memories of the good times you have doing so. As a lifelong collector I treasure these old memories as much as I do the bits and pieces I chased after.

What a long and strange trip itís been!

Op writes about fluctuations in value but doesn't quote a single price.

I acquired a collection of M44 type Mosin Nagants over some years.

1943-1948 Russian examples by year. Also XO, MO and 1943 Tula. Laminate stock Russian.
Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Chinese, Yugoslavian rework.
Also other short Mosin Nagants., 91/38, M38, 91/59.

Enjoyable search when they were $79-$150 each to purchase.

oops!., actually a 1944 Tula. Only Izhevsk in 1943 AFAIK,
1944 Tula is uncommon though. I just mis-remembered the date of that rifle,

I have some nice examples., all are matching and proper slings etc.

You should check the receiver date on that Tula. Those are cool carbines

These were $550.00 several years ago when they were "around" they were never abundant. Current market easily $700.00 if it's pristine. Maybe more in an auction.

Just put one on the site for $500 or $550(its late I'm too lazy to look for the 20th time). I'm pretty certain it will sell tomorrow morning when I open.

I'd say $550-600 seems to be the average lately.
