Hex receivers are older, I'm sure someone will chime in with exact dates. Check out this site http://7.62x54r.net/ It's full of great info. And look at their Mosin Nagant humor page while your at it, you'll get a good laugh.

As far as sporterizing, I myself am not quite purist (I've stripped and stained my stock) but I really don't like the cutting and chopping and permanently changing the form. But like so many other things in this world (like say, abortion) No matter how much I hate it, I try not to control other peoples lives, or give them too much Hell and strife for what they've done.

Now I had a pawn shop try to sell me a bubba'd m44 for about $400. I threw a screaming fit, not because it was butchered, but because they were trying to pull a rip off.

Going to test both and keep the best and sell the other.
Do a google search for Pat Burns. (gunsandammo) She has heaps and gobs of M1938s. I paid about $200.00 for my last one.

The shape of the receiver.
For a shooter, it does not matter a bit.

I just got another M44 and an SKS . Both Russian, with Bee-you-tee-full

finished wood stocks, all matching serials, original bayonets, very lightly handled.

Now these, I would not change for the world.

Two of the nicest looking Milsurps I have ever seen.

Depends on you.

Shape. The last of the Hex receivers were made in 1936 if memory serves me, that was a 45 year run. Round started in 1934..35 and while produced for fewer years, Millions more were made. If you can get a Hex for the same price as a round, grab it.

Is there a difference between the Russian ammunition and the Chinese ammunition in 7.62x54R?
