Nice 1944 Dated Russian Izhvesk Mosin Nagant M44 Carbine 7.62x54r
With importation of these M44 Russian Carbines having dried up, they are getting tougher to find, and the prices are rising. This example built in 1944 at the Izhvesk arsenal is typical of some of the later R Guns imports with the import mark on the side of the receiver. Also typical of the Soviet arsenal rebuilds of these, the carbine has the usual post war rebuild markings. All the numbers match, the bore is bright and shiny, and has been counterbored. Though like many of these there does not look like there was a reason for doing the counterbore. It will make a nice addition to your collection with the bluing at 98%.
