Just got my first Mosin Saturday morning! Its a 1946 M44. I bought it at at a gun show for $54. The dealer said that there was a marking of the stock that meant the stock was originally from a m91/30 (anybody else see this?). I spent about 4 hours cleaning it and it looks great! The bore is very shiny. It had quite a bit of cosmo, but mineral spirits took good care of that. Also bought some Yugo heavy ball lead core ammo. I hope to test fire it soon and post pics when I get them loaded!
