Picked up an M44 last night, honestly I don't know much about these other than I thought I needed one. All serials matching and I think it says 1943 on the receiver which confuses me cause I thought they didn't make these til '44. No cosmoline on it and looking down the barrel the rifling looked spotless, at least to my untrained eyes. Guess I have to study up on the markings and whatnot, but I'm not too concerned about that stuff yet. Either way it just seems like a cool piece to have in the collection. Didn't have much time last night so only one pic.
