It's funny you brought up the subject of the m44 Mosin Carbine. I just purchased one today for $90. In my opinion rating a 8.5 out of 10. War time issue 1945. I have been away at Reno Nevada over night for my wifes B-day and went across the street to waist time while she waists money on the slot machines and in the only pawn shop i entered there were 5 mosin carbines dating from 1943 to 45. I looked at them all and wanted an earlier mosin but the stocks were too beat up and gace myh hands splinters just holding them so i bought the 1945. A true beaut!!!

Since this live weapon was purchased across state lines i must have it shipped to a dealer i know for pick up. Pictures will get posted when i receive it.
