CUBAN REDNECK stated about Mosin Nagant carbines on another thread, and I didn't wish to interrupt it.

My question is, were there Mosin Nagant carbines (I think they are M/44's) made for Cavalry troopers, and are they readily identifiable' ie: markings or stampings, if they even exist.

Thank You.

Thanks seansean 1444

I have to quote you....
"but ya never know"

I've never heard of a Cavalry version, but I had to ask. :D

I Ride with an old Tula SKS, but if they issued a Cavalry M/44 one I'd love to own one.

The Mosin Nagant in different configurations was used by many Cavalry units but those that are identifiable as such usually cost a premium. The m38 would have been issued to cav so it does count.

I had an M38, for what it's worth. Basically just a cut down 91/30 without a bayonet.

Not sure about the cavalry designation but I have a Hungarian M-44 thats easily recognizable becouse of the permanently attached folding bayonet. I also have a 91/59 carbine that is almost identical to the M-38 except for the scrubbed rifle sights instead of carbine sights.

The Reason I asked, is....A carbine Cavalry wouldn't have a bayonet. Thank for letting me know about the M/44 :o

Thank you very much everyone.

I think I will be looking for a the Mosin Nagant M91/38 Carbine, not sure I like the bolt.

But I think I'll keep my Tula SKS as a saddle gun.

Thank you all for the information you gave given me about other Mosin's.

No. No. No.
The 91/38 is a cut-down rifle.

Look for an actual M38 Carbine. ...which was designed to be a carbine.
The better M38s are pre-war (1939/1940), or post-war (1946 - fairly rare). Oddly, there are more M38s available without import marks, than the more common M44. If you would prefer a rifle without import marks, take your time looking around. Through a ridiculous stroke of luck, I stumbled upon a post-war (1946) M38 with no import marks, priced as if it was a beat up M44. ...A golden egg fell into my lap. ;)


If you want a little better quality and accuracy (at a slightly higher price), look for a Finnish M39.

I have an M38 that is just great. Built in 1943. I bastardized it by putting a monte carlo stock on it. I'm now looking for another one.

Thank you FrankenMauser for instructing me on the difference, you can tell I'm new to Russian Bolt action guns :D

And also thank you tater134 for a most informative link, it helped with a lot of my questions.

Have a nice day everyone :)
