I finally finished my m44 scout, wanted to share and get some feedback! Its a 1953 Hungarian model with un matched serials. The bolt is different from the rest of the gun but it shoots great. I have the bayonet but took it off to keep down on the weight. Ive floated the barrel, polished the trigger as well as added a spring and shim to it. I polished the bore as well as the bolt, and fresh greased the internals. It has a brass stacker mount, and an aim 2-7x42 mil dot scout scope, with the supplied rings. As soon as I track down cheap picatanny 30mm rings that are lower ill swap. The scope caps are butler creek. I have some smith sight fiber optic front sights on the way, in red and green. Im debating a bent bolt as well as a synthetic stock, but I think the wood gives it a lot of character. Im curious to hit the groups I can shoot now with the scope, I mostly shoot surplus spam can ammo so im sure ill have a few flyers.....id love to track down some match 54r ammo! Let me know what you think, as long as its not a polishing a turd joke ,although for now it is a free country so voice your opinion regardless! Thanks for looking!
