in 7.62x54R Dated 1944
These M38 Mosins are getting
scarce to find now. There were the least common rifle
produced at the end of WW2 and were quickly replaced by the
M44 that had the folding bayonet. They were issued mostly to
support troops who didn't need the bayonet. This one is
dated 1944 and was made at the
Izhevsk arsenal and only about 167,000 were
produced in that year. This one is a true M38 and was not
built using a M44 stock.
This one is all matching numbers
with the magazine being forced matched during the arsenal
rebuild. The stock is in overall very good condition with a
few minor scrapes to the finish. The metal retains 95+% of
the blue. The bore is a little rough but has deep grooves
and a good scrubbing should clean it up better. It has had
the muzzle counter bored about
½" back. Comes with the original accessories.
Overall a very nice, clean rifle.
