After my puchase of this M44, I did a research of the markings on it. It comes out to be the hungarian version of the mosin nagants M44. Very solid if you ask me, i cleaned it and everything and was pleased when i took it to the range. So far I've fired more than 60 rounds, still developing muscle to handle the kick it delivers lol.

Someone has got to tell me why people rave about this rifle.
Is it the sights? Te hooded front sight reminds me of a Marlin .30-30.
How accurate is it? Great photos.

Nice rifle Franco.

What did you pay?

Keep practicing, my wife shoots mosins, and she weighs in at less than a 100lbs.

Don't ever forget to clean it after shooting. Remember your ammo is corrosive.

thanks for the comments! i paid 110 bucks for it at a local gun shop, it was the cheapest out of all the other shops. the others were asking 300-900 WTF!?!?
i've taken it to the range twice and each time i've cleaned it afterwards, after doing many research and watching youtube vids, it is instilled in my head that i need to clean it lol. ammo is cheap if you buy it in bulk. like stated above, it is cheap, reliable, you can use it as an oar, you can dig foxholes, it can fire in inclement weather, fire one and you'll see and hear why.

Great choice! Back when I got into milsurps for a bit my first M44 was a Hungarian one. Probably the only M/N variant I regret selling besides the VKT Finnish one.

That M44 shot real tight and dead on with S&B 180 SP. The stock was solid, cleaned up real well and the bluing had very little wear.

M44's are a great value, tough as nails, shoots a serious round, belches fire (lol),.. plenty accurate. You won't have to baby it, keep it clean and it'll probably last another 50 years. Enjoy.

Try shooting it with the bayonet out,I hear it helps to tighten groups because it helps dampen harmonics.My m44 is a clapped out reject,no rifling left but the rest of it is fine so it will be parts someday.As has already be said,make sure you keep it clean!Hot water,windex,and/or wd40 down the bore work better then oil if it has to sit for any lenght of time before being cleaned after shooting.Oil does not disolve salt and is usualy to thick to rinse the salt out!Hose the bore with what I mentioned above if it has to wait to be cleaned!
I worked on a lobster boat for a few years and any gun I brought aboard(all where blued steel) I stripped and put in the bottom of the shower when I took a shower at the end of the day(metal parts only).When I got out of the shower I would crank the hot water to rinse it and give it a little oil when it was dry,all look just about as good as when I got them(well some of the stocks look a little funky).The captain had a stainless ruger MKII or MKIII that he started bringing on the boat.He would wipe it down with oil and that stainless ruger turned to junk after a few weeks,the salt and bait slime rotted and etched that stainless like it was 73 cuttless.
All of the ammo out there for your m44 is corrosive except for a few types with hunting style bullets,treat it all as corrosive and take care of that rifle or yours will be a parts gun also!The bore,chamber and bolt face need to be cleaned every time you shoot it,the same day,as soon as possable!Keep an eye on the rest of the bolt,inside the reciever and the internals of the magazine,any signs of corrosion means you need to strip the gun down to nothing and clean everthing.

Does that thing need to be blued? It looks nickle plated! Nice though, I have a 91/30 that I have modded out. I know the mosins like the back of my hand. Let me know if you have any questions.

If the recoil is a bit much, consider putting a recoil pad on it. A slip on, or find another stock, trim the back with a table saw and find a limbsaver that's close and mount it. Need parts? http://www.sarcoinc.com/n91.html

Keep buying those 440rd tins. Not going to last long. I'm real tempted to get one myself, but got plenty of .30-30's and SKS already. Need to work on the 22 and 12 gauge departments.

thanks for the comments and suggestions guys. I've been shooting the rifle with the bayonet extended, i have soaked it in hot water to rid of the cosmoline and have used number 9 to clean afterwards. The rifle is in need of bluing (sp). I will do that this weekend. I do have pics of the 100 yard range targets, i will post when i get home. I will say the groupings are not good but it's all on paper lol. Wife and I went to the gun show and there i picked up the tool kit and the mosin sling. The only thing that worries me is when i take it apart, man is it a challenge because i am scraping the wood when i slide the metal clips off to take apart the rifle.
