Less weight + all else being equal= more recoil. And the 7.62 Russian in a carbine may not be a 600 Nitro Express, but it DOES speak with some authority, especially shooting from the bench! OW!

I sold my 91/30 to a guy for $100 cash, because I prefer carbines.
My 44 kicks less than the 91/30, maybe due to being much shorter and less powder burns inside the barrel.

But the 44 is so much handier and simple to move through the house and carry under tree limbs.

Meet my fun family: used Mini 14 & 30, (prev. unfired) Norinco SKS, MN 44 and ancient Savage .22.
Just a middle-aged, very, very late-bloomer with fun guns for plinking.
100-yard accuracy is not important to me-not at all. My floating targets are no more than 60 feet away. I could not imagine spending lots of ammo money on an AR-15 with a scope, expensive stuff, or an M-14/M-1A1 etc... just to impress other people at the range (have never hunted). I'm a simple "conscripted, ill-trained Russian peasant", who prefers to shoot cheaper Wolf ammo etc in simple guns with iron sights, thereby allowing more frequent plinking.

There are many places you can get some ammo on the Internet, J&G Sales, Ammo Man, Cheaper Than Dirt, etc. But if you want to get your hands on some immediately for that instant gratification thing, you may have to be prepared to spend a few more bux for it. Or, see if there are any gun-shows coming up in your area. Someone usually has a bunch of less expensive imported ammo.

Mine is an M-44, and I enjoy shooting it. With the Mosin, if you miss them with the bullet, you will at least take them out with the muzzle blast.

Nothing wrong with that!

I don't think so.I do it in a heart beat for a finnish rifle.I'd still do it for a regular mosin .It really changes the look once you get the upgrade done.
I don't remember what cheaper than dirt selling the rifle stocks for but it
was under $80.

Four nights ago I called "Sportsmansguide" to order another 300-rd. can of really cheap Bulgarian while my wife was asleep.

I've followed about seven ammo bulk suppliers each week since December, for this x54r, x39 and .223.

Sportsmansguide has discontinued the 300 round cans, but they list the tiny paper packs of ten rounds for about the same price/round.
Let's hope that this is not a trend.
The lady staffer on the phone was not given the reason for this unexpected change.
There may be other abrupt changes in ammo marketing with no warning at all.

Now have my second MN 44. Rarely find anybody to plink with so it can be a nice spare. Be aware that laminated 44s are apparently now much harder to find in retail stores-one guy in a small gun shop told me that he can not get anymore from either "J&G" or "AIM". Two Gander Mts. which I visited last weekend appeared to have none (on display). They are in Jackson, TN and Evansville, IN (this had about three in a back room-but after seeing the new high price, did not bother to see).
One of two small gun stores in Clarksville TN which are both near Ft. Campbell had only one, which I bought.
Somebody at the "Gunandgame" website stated that the Russians might be holding back on the laminated 44s.

ScottG: You are an astute gentleman and such a diplomatic style will take you far in life.

Default m-n m44

I have one of these. bought it from the guy who carried it out of Virt Nam. I think mine is a refurb from someplace as i CAN'T MATCH THE ARSENAL MARKS TO THE RUSIAN M44. THIS WEAPON DOES HAVE THE OLE HAMMER 'N CYCLE IN A WREATH ON ITAND A CLEAR SERIAL NUMBER ON BREECH AND A SERIAL ON THE BOLT. SO BOTTOM LINE IS - DON'T REALLY KNOW WHERE IT CAME FROM BUT MATCHED EXACTLY TO THE PICS OF THE M44. MINE HAS THE LAMNINATED STOCK. PAID75.00 FOR THE WEAPON.

IN cOLLEGE sTATION, tEXAS, gANDER mOUNTAIN HAS HAD 7.62 AMMO FOR SALE.

Thanks for that link! Confirmed that my 2 Mosin-Nagants are Soviet-made, one Tula and one Izhevsk.
