Thanks for the compliments.

The 1917 is the roughest (to be expected) but is still in good condition. The 1954 M44 is the best, and appears to be unissued. The one with the sling attached is the one I shoot. It delivers some really good groups and the steel core ammo is a lot of fun to shoot at the large 200 yard silhouettes. It really makes a heck of crack when it hits.

Re: Excuse me Comrads, which way to the Russian Front?

...excellent family there Comrade... .....your M44 is much nicer than mine-which happens to be a 1953 Hungarian-its rough dinged stock has definately "been there,done that" but the bore is mirror...and I wonder if it may have been thru the 1957 Revolution..
....I've got 4 M91's....I LOVE shootin those long beasts....and am amazed at how accurate they are at 100yds with iron sites and my eyes ...all mine are Finn Captures...2 Tikka's....one is a N.E.W 1915 tahs got the Finn Home Guard #s on it(boy if THAT one could talk )...and one Izhevsk 1915 that scares me with how well it shoots.........a 1939 Izhevsk 91/30 thats seems transitional as it doesnt have the globe front site,but a doublestacked one like an M91....and to round things off-2 M39s....a VKT and a SAKO....all with early reciever dates stamped into the tang....well-ther're Russian....but 'Finn'd...

That's what I love about the old military rifles. The markings will tell you so much of the history of the weapon. Which leads the imagination to run a little wild.

....no imagination required-the markings give the timeline and location....and history backs it up...
