A Chinese M44 (type 57? 58? I forget...)
I could be wrong but I believe that they are the chinese type 53.

I started on a basic 91/30 and have had a lot of good fun since then. Moisans are good guns and I plan to get another

Folks tend to be surprised that I only have ONE*. I'm on the lookout for a carbine (no M44 or clone, though; I want it to be lightweight), but my one 91/30 has a roller-bearing trigger I made, one of my sights, and a bunch of other goodies.

With handloads it shoots sub-MOA and I just know where I hit with it. The handloads are fireformed so this keeps me from mixing those up, too.

I have a nice, 120-year-old Gewehr 88 sitting over there in the corner loaded, but I've not shot it in a couple months. It's the Mosin that sees all the action, followed by the .22 and the 1911.

They are all working guns.

*Business sig line added for clarification to that statement.

I have three

1953 Hungarian M-44. Fantastic shape and great shooter. #'s match

M91/59 Carbine. Was a 1942 Izhevsk 91/30 in another life. all #'s match except buttplate

1929 Izhevsk Hex Reciever 91/30. Beautiful wood #'s match.

They are all good shooters and get shot often. I have killed deer with them as well.

Uno... a PU sniper.

Had a M44, but the bayonet was annoying in the safe. Didn't like it, so I sold it. Got the PU from Impact Guns, but figured to get back in the Mosin Nagant after I saw a project to make a 10 round magazine for it.

No interest in another, considering the USMC M1903 sniper reproduction I had built and the Garand I just purchased. Do have a Nagant revolver at my FFL...
