I don't think it is a great deal, but it might be in your part of the world. I had a M-N 44, and the short barrel was objectionable. But with the mounts and the scope (depending on what it is) sweetens it somewhat.

You can get the rifle for $200 GunsAmerica - Mosin-Nagant M44 Carbine - Mosin-Nagant Rifles/Carbines - Guns For Sale & Gun Auctions B"H

The mount costs ~ $8.00 and the cost of the scope is ?

Maybe they're getting hard to come by. I like the rifle better than the carbine, and they're cheaper as well. Mine shoots about 4" with irons, which is pretty good and less recoil. I got rid of my carbine, bad muzzle blast and kicked pretty hardily.

Ummm, didn't they stop making Mosin-Nagants in 1948?

JGguns:
Some regular guys at 'Gunandgame', 'MN forum' are very enthusiastic MN veterans and can give you sound advice.

They are always upbeat about any MN and some have owned more than a few, but will know whether something is a decent deal or not.
And they have a good sense of humor, kid each other a lot.
A sense of humor seems to be a forgotten asset so often on the 'Internut'.

Thanks laufer I will check it out. Ater doing some more research I found you can get the guns for about 160 but not in near as agood condition. The cheapest I found the scope was 190 and 200 rounds at my local gun shop wich generally very competitive on there prices was 100. So all in all its a deccent deal not great but I might pick it up just for the condition of the gun. Thanks

In my neck of the woods, I can pick up an M44 for around 150 dollars or less.

300 dollars seems just a bit high for a price.

P.S. Just an additional tidbit of info. The M91/30 rifles are all over and they average around 90-120 dollars each. Same thing, but with a longer barrel.

Yeah I can get them all day for 150 but not in new condition this also comes with a 200 burris scout scope and mounting bracket plus 200 rounds.

Most of them were arsenal rebuilt, and have great bores. The ammo is corrosive and will mess up the bore if you don't clean it soon after shooting.

I ended up trading a model 60 marlin 22 and some cash. I got it for about 275. It ended up being a carbine when I got down there checked it out. Its a model 44 made by the Izhevsk arsenal. As far as the condition well I would say you would be hard pressed to find a one in better condtion. its probly 99% from factory. Its a 1946 with all numbers matching. I am thrilled with the gun cant wait to shoot it. The burris scope save from maybe being over priced is very nice. Thanks for all the replies guys
