Fun little buggers, and they blow a nice flame out the front too.

So you can do a bayonet charge. DUH!

(I have one myself)

Yes, I understand, but the question is why more than one


ETA: just f'ing with you a little - enjoy your new rifle. Anything that goes bang and shoots lead down-range is worth having.

Fun to shoot in prone with only a tshirt on.

because they obviously need friends...then they start breeding... then half of your collection has Tula or IZH stampings...

ETA: careful with that bayonet, I wasn't mindful of where my fingers were once when I was closing one and...ouch!
Lesson learned, now my fingertips stay well away from that little groove on the top edge of the stock

Enjoy!

Fun guns, mine is zeroed in to be on target only with the bayo deployed.

Plus, you can have one from so many countries, Polish, Russian, Hungarian, Romanian for almost no money.

I've got one...very fun! I took it to an indoor range session with some friends (the range said it was ok). The room is pretty small, and every time one of those 7.62x54's let off, everybody eyes shut involuntarily...hehe.

good question. It's been a while since I fired a mauser

But tell you what: those two guns are the funnest guns to shoot IMO

Hey I like it when a gun brother is f"ing with me! Actually the nice thing is I can buy this gun with my CR and if I want I can take it to the gun show and sell it to one of the yahoos down there for twice the price I paid for it. However, I am rarely seperated from one of my babies.

the 7.62x54 kicks quite a bit harder, especially out of that little M-44
Link Posted: 8/10/2005 8:13:56 AM EDT
I'm surprised that more M-44's are not seen in 3rd world conflicts, due to the cheap price ,money problems and HUGE stockpiles the Commies still have. Hell , but when you can get an AK????

I would say that the German k-98 hits a little, but does not compare to M-44. It will definately leave a mark if you shoot it most of the day without protection. My friends have the old Steyr-Mannlicher. It seems to be a nut cracker.

Best gun out there for $60
Link Posted: 8/10/2005 8:20:14 AM EDT
BOOOOM!

[and, then heard from other shooting lanes]

"WTF was that!?"

It will make your shoulder nice and purple if you shoot with a t-shirt.

But it buffs right out.

I don't have a M-44, but I do have 2 M-91/30 (1 Tula hex reaver (1935)and 1 IZH round "high wall" receaver (1942)) and love 'em both!

Cheap, simple, and strong.
Link Posted: 8/10/2005 8:44:32 AM EDT
the M44 is my SHTF survival rifle of choice!

Link Posted: 8/10/2005 8:46:58 AM EDT
That's interesting. I shot my neighbor's M44 and it seemed to kick a lot less than my M48 Mauser. Yes, I was shooting milsup ammo out of both.

My neighbor's M44 is a terrific offhand shooter. Just point and pull the trigger. I was amazed at how well it shot for me.

The biggest reason:

Guns look better in groups!!!

With the C&R license, it becomes easier to 'get both'. Get at least two of each of these old mil-surp, build a diplay rack to line them all up, and then stand back and gaze at your little arms room!!!
Link Posted: 8/10/2005 8:59:10 AM EDT
The only thing I need for mine is a sight adjusting tool? Anybody know where to get one or what (other than a punch & hammer) will work?

If they were good for nothing else, the muzzle flash makes 'em worth the price!

Sadly, I only have one M44.

But I keep it company with an M91, M91/30, M91/38, M38, M39 and an M91/59. They are quite addictive.

Oh! You just had to bring up the M-39! The best of the rest. I have 3 of these in unissued condition. One is a Sneak. Awesome shooters!
