The Finnish MN,s are supposed to be the better rifles, but they cost more, you pay for what you get.

As far as the russian ones, I think the MN91/30 may be a bit more accurate because it has a longer barrel, but the M44 and M39 are easier to manuver around and just as fun to shoot.

If you pay for junk, that is what you will get, buy a decent one and it will do you right.

You can get a really nice one of just about any of the common russian made ones for 125 or less

What's a good price on an M44 right now? I like the ATI stock but am worried that Mosin might issue a warning with repairs of the Mosin Nagant M44 with use of this stock! LOL!

Depends on where you get it. If you pick one up face to face at a gun show, you might get it for 75 bucks.

If you pick it up at a gun shop or buy it off of the internet, expect to pay more for the same rifle because of overhead and other fees

Any MN that you own!!!

Ok, on a serious note, the 91/30 would be the most accurate since it has a longer barrel, but the M44 carbine seems to be asking the least in price. Either rifle will go for about $100 bucks on average (But J and G has a smoking price on them! $59.00 for the 91/30 standard receiver, $79.99 for the Hex Receiver and $69.99 for the standard wood stock M44)

Who is G?
The hex is the barrel? Like the old Henry rifles?
Thats what I would want!

Hex is the receiver made before the war when they had some time to do a nice job. Before they had to start just cranking them out. Here is a photo of a hex
