I am looking to trade my M44 for a standard 91/30 Mosin. Mine has sharp rifling with no counter-bore and a great trigger. All the numbers match except for the bolt. I am not sure who the manufacturer is, but the year is 1953. For some reason the M44s went way up in price compared to the 91/30s so if you want to get one of these without the $250 price tag and you have a spare mosin lying around here is your chance.
