Mosin Nagant

I have a M44 that I've modified. I've added a long-eye relief scope and synthetic stock -- basically turned it into a "scout rifle". I have to sight my scope in, yet.

No, it is not. Nato is 7.62x51mm and the other is 7.62x54mm. Russian is always bigger.

Nope, but really close, I think.

not .308

the nagants are like the british rifles in that they use a .311 bore,if you hand load you can get the correct bullets,otherwise stick to factory ammo

7.62x54R

you can find a lot of 7.62x54R surlpus ammo for very cheap, just be careful because most of it is corrosive. fine to shoot, just clean your rifle afterwards!

ignorance

Please excuse my ignorance, why are these rifle held in such high regard? For the record, I have never shot one, nor have I even held one. It is not a loaded question, just want some more information and opinions.

thanks

mosin nagants

they are just available every where because companies such as century arms, and others imported so many of them. they were purchased by countries as surplus and imported to the U.S for sporting and collecting purposes. since there are so many available, you can pick them up pretty cheap. I have seen them go for anything between $50-$200 depending on the year, model, condition, and vendor and upwards of $800 for origional nagant sniper rifles. you can also get cheap surplus ammo for them around $3-$4 a box (most is corrosive, so just clean the rifle afterwards). So they are very inexpensive to purchase and shoot. they are also pretty accurate rifles, and the 7.62x54R has pretty good ballistics, and is a pretty good hunting round. If you've never had the chance to shoot one, I suggest you try to. I especially like the m44's and m38's which are the short barrel carbine versions, because they really buck when you shoot that large round out of them. everyone standing close by will feel it. next time you get an extra $100 or so, go pick one up. it will be a great shooter, and a piece of history.

m44

i have a M44 it has a bayonet and is a great gun. the bullet is really big . the only problem with it is that it has a long bolt that gets in the way for a scoop but u you can pick up a bent bolt handel that is only around $40.

suport our troops where ever thay are!

M44

Be sure to move bolt back and check the insides good an theese rifles, I have saw some that are missing halfe of the ring around the inside of the back of the barrell, right where the butt of the shell sits. This will definatly cause extraction problems. So if you ever buy one check for this problem, other than that they are good shooting rifles. Good for hunting.
OH and yes you can't beat the price either!
