The hammer/sickle inside a wreath: USSR Izhevsk arsenal

The feathered arrow inside a triangle: USSR Izhevsk arsenal post 1928 parts.

The M-44 is my handsdown favorite bolt-action. Your life will never be the same! :D

Enjoy...

Just make sure to clean-up after all that corrosive ammo.

The Russian and Polish are considered the best made M44s.....either would be great.

I've gotten excellent accuracy (1-2 inches at 100 yards) from the corrosive mil-surp stuff (comes in the 440 round metal tins) from J&G. Not sure what it is...somthing around a 147grainer.

I've also fired the 200 grain soft points with the metal casings and found them to be less accurate (4-6 inches at 100 yards). I guess the short barrel of the M-44 doesn't stabilize the heavier bullets as well.

I've also had excellent accuracy when reloading S&B cases with 150 grain bullets in front of a moderate powder charge.

Hope this helps.
