Hello....can somebody tell me what Type of Rifle this is....thanks in advance
Not Enfield, but a version of the Mosin-Nagant.
Looks like it's a Moisin Nagant M44.
The 1948 date rules out WW2. If the bayonet is mounted on a hinge, it would be an M44. If the bayonet slips over the barrel, it would be a 91/30. I am not sure when the last 91/30s were made in Russia, but the gun was made well after WW2 in other countries.
Sooo close! The later would not be a 91/30, but an M38 or M56. That is an Izhevsk M44. Since no M38's were made there, it was pretty simple.
BTW, just noticed that was your first post here- welcome to the forum. When you get a chance, drop by the intro thread and say hello.
ANNND a little reading for you on your carbine-
The 1948 M44 is a very low number produced rifle. Do some research on it. It's worth a more than the run of the mill M44.
This link was passed along to me, and I'll pass it along to you. A ton of information.
Good news. It uses 7.62 54r ammo. You won't find It at Walmart but most gun stores will carry it for 14 to 18 a box new
Ammo? Buy the 440 round tin can for about $100.
