Russian Mosin Nagant M44
Hungarian
Dated: 1952
Calibre: 7.62x54
Serial No 1789
£475

Very Good Condition - With a Good Shooting Grade Bore

Produced by the FÉG (Fémáru- Fegyver- és Gépgyár) plant in Budapest, these high-quality versions of the Soviet Model M44 were.
They are characterized by a high-quality finish and the marking of all parts with the "02" stamp.

After WWII the Soviet Union shared much of its weapons technology with its satellite countries, including the Mosin rifles and carbines.
M44s were produced in the 1950s by Hungary and follow the same pattern as the post war Soviet M44s

A good example made in 1952 prior to the Hungarian Revolution

Matching numbers & good bore, missing its clearing rod

The butt has a feint VO marking, worthy of further reserach to see if it was linked to the 1956 uprising in anyway

*** Note: The correct Variation for a Mosin Nagant is "7.62" or "7.62x54". A variation for a "7.62/308" is Not Valid For Mosin Nagants ***
