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?
