Is the M38 the same length than the m44?

Are these basically the same except bayonet?

Is it 6 to one half dozen to another or is one "considered" better than the other?

M38 is the same as M44, minus the bayonet.

10 years or so ago, the M38 was pretty rare. You could get shooter grade M44's for $20, but I only saw one M38. Now they are abundant (for now).

All that being said, get both.

They are about 99% the same except for the bayonet.

The 1938G was a more rare version. It is the most rare followed by the 91/59. They were for issue to mountain troops.

I would pick one up becuase they won't be common long.

I perfer the M44 myself. I have 2 of each.

I have one of both. I personally prefer the M-44, but just because it has a little more aggressive look. I'd recommend picking up one of each. I plan on picking up a M-91 and M-39 (Finnish) next. Spend the extra $25.00 and get them in unissued condition. You won't regret it!
