Mosin-Nagant M44

Izhevsk Arsenal Dated 1948

in 7.62x54r

Like New/Unissued


This is an very nice post WW2 rifle with about 99+% blue left. 1948 was the last year the M44s were made, the AK47s were starting to replace them. All numbers match. This one looks like it just left the arsenal. I don't believe it was ever issued. 

The stock is very clean with no dents or dings to the arsenal varnish finish. The bolt is still bright. The bore is excellent with deep grooves and bright shine. The muzzle is not counterbored. From looking at the face of the bolt and the magazine follower, this rifle has never been fired since it left the arsenal. Also the faint slanted discolored marks in the finish is from the paper wrapping the gun was stored in at the arsenal after it was made. This is a good indication that not only was the gun not refinished but never issued as well. About as new as you can get.

This is rifle is from my personal collection. Thinning out the herd a bit.

Overall an excellent example and would make a great shooter or addition to any collection.
