Mosin Nagant M44 Carbine Photos
M44 Carbines in a
Soviet storage crate. In most cases these carbines
were stored by date. It further seems that
these carbines were exported to various nations also
by date. Below is another view of a storage
crate. The other Eastern European nations
used like crates, as the author owns crates from
Russian, Hungary, Romania, and Poland. The
color is the only difference in the crates.
A M44 with a post
war grenade launcher added. These are not a
common find as the M44 was being phased out of service
by the SKS soon after WW2. Opposite side of the same
carbine showing the post war alterations.
Top photo is
of a laminate stocked M44 with a hex receiver. The
carbine is dated 1945. Below that another rare
hex receiver M44 carbine 1944 dated and made at Tula.
