"96% semi-inlet" stocks from Richard's Microfit Gunstocks, http://rifle-stocks.com/ - a variety of styles, woods and prices. Never bought from them, but they've been a going concern for a number of years so I'd HOPE they're legit.
A bit of woodwork to fit your M44 to your choice of stock, and lock & load :)

Ok I am curious , why would you want to change a stock on a M44 , I collect MNs and I see no reason to restock them unless they are going to be butchered. If that is the case you might try military rifles.com : they might have some articles on how to convert your rifle to a "shooter". I happen to like all of my differnt versions as they are : with the exception that I did poly coat a hungarian for my dad for using on mountain lions and bears in the Mnts of OK... that way the moisture will not warp the stock and it can be removed later if need be. If your planning on making a deer rifle out of a M44 , it might be best to go with a scout mount from B squared and get the best of both worlds. As an aside , the M44 was made to be shot with the bayonet extended so if it is not it throws the balance of the rifle off a bit.

I don't know about Grim_Reaper, but I use non-collectible stocks for my hunting Mosins ever since a pristine B-barrel M39 of mine took a ding to the stock while hunting.
The stock did its job and protected the rifle, but I'd rather an ATI or microfit stock had taken the hit and not the 60+ year-old original :(
I was hunting using the stock (iron) sights, they work just fine for me out to about 200 yards, about as far as I'd normally shoot anyway. A modern stock is cheap insurance :)
