    Default 1943 M44 Mosin Nagant in my sights

    I have a chance to buy a 1943 M44 Izhevsk Mosin Nagant for $200. All matching, light surface rust here and there, stock is pretty scratched up but very few minor dents. Bore looks great, receiver has stupid importer marks, but nothing I can do about that. According to my research, these were pre-production carbines built to test on the front. Only 50,000 were made that first year. Prices on the auction sites are all over the place, with nicer guns going for $300-400. So, my question is, should I spring for it?

    You haven't? Somebody is selling the scope setups still. My shoulder can't deal with the recoil anymore. But that's a decent deal dew. Snag it.

    $200 for m44 is generally not a bad deal but again depending on the condition it might be a good deal or just an average fair price.
    with that being said i bought a post-war 1946-production beautiful pristine m44 for $197 in 2010. that's when 91/30s were $89 in most B&M gunshops.

    You know I want it! But money is tight right now. I need to sell something but I have just what I want in my small collection with no spares. I hate to let it get away though. What makes me want it when I have never been really interested in the m44 is that the 43 year guns are not so common. From 7.62x54r.net -"Arsenals and Dates M44 production began at Izhevsk in 1943 one year before official adoption and continued through 1948. The first year of production is uncommon at an estimated 50,000 total and typically bring a premium."

    That's stupid cheap. 91/30's are way over $200.00 now IF you can even find one in stock. 44's are near $ 400.00 like you say & try to even find a 38, my fave.
    I have some 44's in need of resto & I would not want less than $200.00.
    If you pass on that rifle & want a fixer upper finish wise later on, I fix you up good deal.Have several.

    But I'd go grab that one , just because I know I could turn it for a profit right now.

    I got the money out of the bank. Still haven't bought it. What the hell, I need to diet anyway.

    Thought about the repro scope thing yet? Sold the last Moison several years ago.
    I might have a turned down bolt a guy was nice enough to give me. I'll PM you if it turns up. So it stays original.

    My wife has a nice Tula 91/30 that I wanted to put a repro scope on. She told me I'd better not touch her gun!

    I understand dew. My wife and her double barrel shotgun and the 38 are pretty much the same way. Unless I can find an engraver local to us. She wants and elephant on it.
