An M44 Mosin Nagant 7.62x54R. Reciever says year of '45...doesn't look over 60 years old, that's for sure. Bayonet should stay out when you shoot or it throws you off about a foot every 100 yards...besides, it's a pain in the arse to take off...and can you imagine being out deer hunting when you pass a guy with a bayonet? Definitely a steal for $89. Going to the smith for an inspection next week then I can go pop off some rounds.
