  1. I have not been able to find a whole lot about the 1944 Tula Hex reciever M44, but I've not seen one other than the one I bought a few weeks ago. Anybody out ther have one of these?

    Geo M44: Sir; I looked at 4 at a gunshop yesterday. :) Don't got one yet:)
    soon to be rectified:)
    Did you post any pictures.

    We need pictures along with Range Reports.:)
     
  4. Neo, Keep in mind that this is a M44, 1944, Tula Arsenal, Hex receiver, not a 91/30.

    She is still disassembeld for detailing, but here is a picture of the receiver area. Note the folded bayo.

    Craig, If those rifles are indeed M44s Tula Hex could you please PM me with the prices and how to contact said gun shop?!!!

    M44s are short carbines with folding bayonets.

    AWW! PLEASE!!!!
     
  8. NO TEX...its mine.....hehehehe. I need one more than you.
     
  9. I dunno man. If, according to the experts, there were ~100,000 Tula M44's made, and I'm thinking less than half were Hex (because they were apparently the first prototypes and there seems to be some availability of round receivers on-line) it would be a rare find to have 4.

    If they do... I'm in for another one (or two).:):):)

    Just tell us where they are.:werd:
