Where can i find a m44 mosin?


Recommended Posts

They show up fairly regularly at gunshows, gun shops, Armslist, Gunbroker, etc.  Probably one of the easier to find variants, along with other ComBloc iterations like the Polish and Chinese versions.  Make sure you check out the trader on gunboards.com as well, it's the premier Mosin site on the net now.  If you're looking for fresh imports, that ship has sailed, except for some really rare shipments that occasionally trickle in from buyers overseas.  There was a small lot of Chinese T-53's that came in a year or two ago from Albania, that's the last I heard of.  Ethiopia was dumping some obsolete arms last year, but I don't remember seeing any M44's in that one, it was mostly old Berdans and the like ...

My dad got me one at an auction two years ago. Never fired and honestly, dont even know why I still have it. I have zero interest in lugging that long ass m91 anywhere

That's by design so you can bayonet the other side from the safety of your own trench.

I forgot about the stupid bayonet. Feels like I need a longer safe just for this one rifle. I should probably sell it soon. Unlike everyone around me who is "mortified" when I told them I sell stuff I dont use. Knowing my luck the cosmoline probably migrated to something like. Like the ak or the ar.

These old rifles are made more like a farming implement than a fine rifle. They are crude, but strong, reasonably accurate, and pack quite a wallop. I find them to be an interesting part of history and human ingenuity.

Absolutely Greg, they are a little crude , at least some are.  A lot of the ones made during World War II are a kind of rough around the edges. That happens when you have a lot of work to do, and a ruthless dictator screaming at you to work harder and faster. I have a couple that are not to bad.

The M44 is one of the shorter Mosin variants.  If you want long, find an original M91 with bayonet ...

Yeah, the original M91 rifles have 31" barrels. Put a bayonet on it and whew! Some of the originals were made in America.

M91's are probably my favorite variant, at least I think I have more of them than any other.  The oldest is an 1895 Tula, which came packaged with an Austrian made bayonet (kind of rare).  The US made M91's are cool as well, albeit I only own one, a New England Westinghouse that came back here via Finland ...
