It's a Mosin nagant M44. will give you more information on your rifle.

I second that-distinctly a mosin nagant M44-carbine to the 91-30

I third that. By the condition it looks to be in, I would have a gunsmith evaluate it before you take it out to shoot it. Just a precaution.

Jim's right dont try to fire any modern ammo through it until you have it looked at if you value your appendages

Might be one of the Chinese copies of the M44 considering the date of manufacture. I have a Chinese one myself.

I'd agree that it looks like an m44, with that date I'd guess either Polish or Hungarian. Does it have any other markings?? Like maybe an "11" inside an oval on the receiver, or a "02"???? I know my Mosin's pretty well, if you can get a few good pics of the receiver and barrel markings i can give you more information.
