    That rifle does not belong in a holster.

    That rifle belongs in your hands or on your shoulder killing enemies of the motherland.

    If you mention holstering or slinging that rifle again, you rifle will be taken from you, and you will be sent to a more active sector of the front lines to participate in human wave assaults were their is 1 rifle for every 5 men.

    1st man carries the rifle, when he dies the next man picks up the rifle, reloads and so forth till you win or you all die.

    Great rifle. Looks to be in decent condition. Had a '44 Tula, myself. From what I understand they make a great deer rifle. Any plans for it or are you going to leave it stock?

    if you ever need to put it on safe the saftey is the knob on the rear of the bolt pull it and twist counter clockwise. then sit and wait for the KGB to beat you to death with it.

    Only $125 and in pretty good condition! Just cleaned it up and plan on keeping it that way.


    If it blows up in my face this Sunday I will take whats left and ship it to Stalingrad for disposal.

    Ya Mosins do seem to multiply. I have 6 right now and am on the prowl for more. They are probally the most fun per dollar firearm out there.

    I have the M44 just like yours, bought it at a gun=show in San Diego about 10 years ago. The 7.62 x 54 round it fires is hellishly powerful. Get some of the steel core yellow-tips. Very strong.

    A bolt-action carbine with a powerful sniper round seems kinda odd, with the kick-butt bayonet and all. Not sure what good it would be in a battle, but it is definitely a nice piece of history.

    Thats a great gun for clearing out the range when its crowded.

    The muzzle blast makes it interesting...

    Although its your first...it probably wont be your last...

    I had a M44 about five years ago that I totally regret selling when I moved. It was a blast to shoot and could totally make an awesome deer gun back home. I will most likely pick one up again next time I see one in decent condition. It's nice because the milsurp ammo for it is still pretty cheap too!
