Default Mosin Nagant M44

Suggestions on where to find one, I've looked online for a few days now and can't find one. I've found some 91/30s in stores around me, but I want the carbine length. Thanks guys!

Several folks have the Chinese version, the T-53, which is identical to the M-44. J&G has them for $129.00. I also saw some CIA M-44s in one of the flyers in the last week, but I can't recall which one. Liberty Tree Collectors has a couple of '44s listed and an M-38, they are nice but a little pricey for me.

I want it because it's inexpensive, and I like carbine length.

I might just get a 91/30 and a box of bulk ammo.

The M44 is a bit more when compared to the 91/30

The Chinese Type 53 is the same gun and a hoot to shoot. I got mine from AIM Surplus, the stock was in pretty rough shape. I'm currently refinishing the stock and in the mean time having some fun with it with modern touches.

I have a Hungarian M-44 and a 91/59 carbine. I really like the carbines especially the 91/59. If you do find a carbine you like I would get it if I was you. They are getting more expensive and harder to find.

I just purchased a French MAS 36 from a friend for $300. He wanted to part with it because he was going to buy Christmas presents for his family!
