    This was a spur of the moment thing so I'm not sure how good this deal was.

    I saw this add:


    So I bought this:


    And it came with this:


    And it has one of these:


    It looks like they even gave it a new serial#:



    It looks like its in really good shape. It was not covered in cosmolene. It is clean and ready to shoot and the Stock looks great.

    I don't know anything about them other than what I've read this afternoon but I have seen them on here so I figured y'all would know.

    I don't know if you can make out the Hammer and Cycle stamp in the last photo and the date (1944)

    I'm going to shoot it Saturday and let you know how it does.

    Any info or good links would be apreciated.

  2. Most will recommend that you have the head spacing checked before you shoot it just to be sure it is safe.

    Other than that it looks like you got an excellent deal on a sweet rifle. Once in awhile Dunham's will sell the M44's at $99 each but most times are at $129. The regular price in your ad shows $189, a price that sounds a little high to me.

    Your gun appears to have beautiful wood grain. Some do, some don't. Both ways makes the gun character IMO. The one I have is a little lite on the grain if memory serves me right. The M44 usually demands higher money because, I assume, it has the folding bayo and is over all shorter. My next will hopefully be an M44 but I won't pass up another M91/30 if the mood strikes me.

    Good job and good buy. Be sure to give us a range report too!

    That is what I was thinking.. It looked like the top of a star.

    It has a triangle with an arrow.

    What does that mean?

    The head space was checked and it was test fired and cleaned before sale.

    Big5 has M44s or 91/30s on "sale" for that price 2 or 3 weeks of every month

    Got two M44s from Centerfire Systems for $50 each, after shipping. Still waiting to go pick them up, until my freaking CWP shows up...
  14. Very nice looking rifle, you made a good deal if you asked me.
  15. I wish we had a Big Five around here in SC.

  17. I just bought 3 Mosin Nagant 91/30's at Big 5 for 79.00 each. I'll probably get a few more if the prices stay that low. The store I went to only had one m-44 for 89.00, but the stock looked like someone used it for a hammer. Had To pass on that one.

    Went to the gun club this evening.


    Shoots 6 inches left at 25 yards. That's like 4 feet off target at 200 yards.

    The sights to not appear to be adjustable. Will need to do some research.

    It is consistent though. I got some real nice groups (less than 1") and a couple of clovers but everything is 6" left.

    (I did have the bayonette deployed as I read that they are more accurate that way.)
