New to me a Hungarian M44, 1953 manufacture date. This old girl has matching numbers on the receiver, barrel, magazine floor plate, and butt. Bolt is electopenciled with same number. Bayonet is in fine shape too. CAI import stamp is on the bottom of the barrel only, much better than all over the receiver. 02 inspection stamp is in many places. Rifling is strong at the muzzle, no counter boring on this one. Bluing is nice, the fine grain wood is in pretty good shape with a few knicks and scratches as it was surely issued and used a bit. For some reason the cleaning rod is missing, but a little internet research proves this to be common with the Hungarian M44s. If I find myself in a survival situation I may regret the ability to not poke mud out the end of the barrel. I've never made goulash, maybe I'll try it sometime soon to celebrate the purchase. I grabbed it for $375, which I thought was fair as the more beat up Russians are going for near that in the shops and gun shows. Now the old farts can reminisce about the $50 days.
