WTB: M44 Mosin Nagant

Looking for a M44 for my dad. He shot mine and really liked it so he's interested in getting one

Re: WTB: M44 Mosin Nagant

Does it have to be a 44? I remember Cabelas having a sale on the long rifles.

We're going to look at a 91/30 at military gun supply down the road. Might run up to Cabelas and see what they have. MGS has the 91/30 for 90 bucks but he's wanting the M44. he might consider a 91/30 after we go see it.

90 isn't bad at all, but I wouldn't drive all the way up to Cabelas if you don't have to. When I was up there they didn't have any of the 44's. In fact I've heard that there are no more of them in surplus anymore.

According to their ad, Cabela's has the long Mosin-Nagants for 99.99 right now. I'm not conversant with the model numbers.

It seems that way in regards to the M44 only ones I have been finding even private party have been in the 200 dollar range. I bought mine a few years ago for 80 lol.

Re: WTB: M44 Mosin Nagant

There are a variety of Mosin carbines to choose from, you could probably find a Chinese T53 as low as under a hundred if you don't mind it being pretty beat up. Rarer M44s such as a Tula will run between $200-300. I would recommend looking at TexasGunTrader.com, it may take a while but they do show up on there at a decent price from time to time.

And the carbines are a lot more fun to shoot, they spit out some huge fireballs!

Cheers! M2

He's got a bead on one in a Pawn Shop in Weatherford he's going to check it out now. 90 bucks but might possibly need a new stock.

Re: WTB: M44 Mosin Nagant

I got an m38 from Big 5 a few years back...turns heads at the long-gun range every time. And with the steel plate for a butt stock, it likes to tap you on the shoulder a bit to say, "Look what I just did." The date stamp on mine is 1946, and with the old iron sights, it still pulls in 6" groups at 100 yards on a bad day. I would recommend buying bulk ammo. I grab a few tins from cheaper than dirt every month or so...the local supply of 7.62x54r tends to dry up occasionally.

Jeep,

I have a VERY nice Ishevsk m44, with all matching numbers, that I would consider selling.
If your dad is still in the market, pm me.

I am in SW FW.

James
