    OOps, I was wrong. It is an M38, not a M44. It is stamped 1943, and the magazine is identical to a 38.

    Dude I feel sorry for that rifle being trapped in a closet for who knows how long, you should take it out and introduce it to the sunshine again.

    Hell, Mom said she thought it was mine. I told her no, so it must have been her ex-husbands. Oh well, it's mine now.

    The shoes are New Ballance.

    I know nothing of MN. I guess I have a whole new world to learn about.
    Thanks for all of the help.
