    Well finally got it and what can I say..... looks and feels like a 79 buck gun but thats what it is. washed all the cosmo off it and blew it out with brake cleaner , not to bad on that part, bore aint to bad...little frosted.Cleaned it a bit and oiled it some, not sure if I'll do anything else with it other then just shoot it, sorta disapointed in the laminate as it didnt look like it took to well to the front stock but rear stock looks like it would clean up nice if I thought about it. .Came with the Oiler and tool kit and leather ammo pouch and sling all that in good shape.oh... does have all matching numbers tho for what its worth. Bought this gun as a wall hanger bang around gun so have to say its about what I expected lol

    I LOVE my M44. I use the heavy ball ammo so let me know how the light ball works out for you.

    Did you order through J&G?

    I have gave very serious thought to getting my C&R and have thoroughly searched J&G's site in total anticipation of someday owning most of their C&Rs. How was their service?

    Also, You HAVE to make a post to let us know what you thought of the rifle after your first trip to the range:)

    Congrats on the purchase!

    The Mosin is a fun gun IMO.
