Russian Mosin Nagant M44 Carbine 7.62X54R 1945

This M44 was made in 1945 at the Izhevsk arsenal and at first blush it looks like it went right into storage without being issued. We found a refurbishment mark on the barrel (see photos) while the only mark we found on the stock was the circled “H” nitro proof (which is very sharp). All serial numbers match: bolt, barrel, butt plate and bottom metal though the floor plate has a strike-thru number as well. Further investigation revealed a counter bored muzzle too. If we hadn’t seen those things we would have regarded this as an unissued example. It retains about 99% blue with slight loss around the muzzle while the bore is smooth and shiny with good strong rifling and only the slightest hint of frosting in the grooves and the stock is completely sound and retains a strong 98% finish with practically no handling marks. The bolt is 99% bright and the bolt face is pristine. There are neatly applied import marks on the left receiver. A really outstanding example of the M44 which many regard as the best of all of the amazing Mosin Nagant variations. An extraordinary Mosin Nagant for the exceptional collection.
