    Default 1944 Izhevsk M44 for Review!

    The box from Southern Ohio Guns came with two rifles in it... an 1891/30 for my buddy, and this Izhevsk 1944 M44 for myself!

    This one appears to be in good shape. Everything is Izhevsk, and all the serial numbers match... although the floor plate has another SN crossed out.

    The barrel has been counter-bored, but the bore appears to be in good shape otherwise!

    How do you guys think I did on this one?

    Looks like a great piece to me Mine is counter-bored as well, but they still shoot as straight as ever.

    Should still be a good shooter. Don't forget that they were made to shoot with the bayonet extended. Shooting it with the barrel stowed puts prussure on the barrel and it can pull the bullets pretty extremely to the right.

    There are Tula-made M44's? I actually thought that they were all made by Ishevsk.

    If I remember correctly, Tula made them for exactly 1yr... so they're a lot more rare.

    My understanding is that the M44s that carry the Tula star were M1938s that were converted to 44s - and were also done at the Izhevsk plant.
