My Polish M44 (1953)

Rec'd this yesterday (via the brown truck)




A couple of things:
Bought it from a private party (no store involved)
No cosmo - the previous owner took really good care of it
Not counterbored
The bore looks great - the previous owner shot it but not much.

Sorry for the crappy cell-phone pic's
(My laptop is terminal)

I can't wait to shoot this sucker!
Hopefully it's a overcast day so the fireballs can be seen!

I don't know if anyone else can see your pics or not, but I can't.

I'll try to repost them, not sure what's the problem - I can see them.

Is anyone having that problem?

I 'herd' some of some bogus M44s coming into Calif. have plastic parts, MIM parts or something like that. Have you checked the magazine and trigger guard lately? With an estimated 7 or 17 million Mosins made it's bound to happen.

Very similar to my first M44 ($90 pawn shop grab, 3 yrs ago). Nicest finished M44 of the several different countries M44s I have owned and also the smoothest action. Be wary of the heavy ball milsurp ammo, especially the Polish. It will rock you big time.

Nice M44! Congrats.

I have an M44 myself that's in decent shape. That thing is a blast to shoot! (pun intended)
