    Its been sort of redundant having a 91/30 and an M44, so making room in the safe. Its a 1948 Izhevsk, in great shape (much better done then my mid-war 91/30 as they were no longer in a hurry then ;) ). Last year the M44 was made I believe. Picked it up at a Joe's a year ago and have maybe 100 rounds through it. Will include a few stripper clips, ammo pouch and oil tins. Pics available, just PM me with an email address.

    Thanks!

    The M44 was mfg'd until 1954.
    And it is no more redundant then having 2 30-06's is the safe.

    I wasn't around at the time, but the few places I looked (Wikipedia and MosinNagant.net) have them stopping at 1948, so I'd have to go with them on this one ;)

    The bolt and reciever serials match outright, but the butt plate and clip base are a force match. Shoots great, have a target or two kicking around somewhere from 50 yards with some handloads. My eyes for sure are the weakest link!

    Incorrect. The Russian M44 was made untill 1948. Other Comm-Bloc countries made their own untill 54, but this was the last year of the Russian and is thus highly desireable for a collector.

    were the R means Rimmed cartridsge.
    I really like shooting mine. Fresh factory ammo and a Mojo sight would make mine even better. Ah maybe since Cristmas is coming
