COLD WAR Era Soviet IZHEVSK ARSENAL Mosin-Nagant Model 1944 CARBINE C&R
Post-World War II Dated “1946” with FOLDING SPIKE BAYONET!
Here we present a C&R Soviet Mosin-Nagant Model 44 Carbine, made in 1946 at the Izhevsk arsenal. The Soviet Model 1891 known in the West as the Mosin–Nagant and in Russia as Mosin’s rifle was a five-shot, bolt action, internal magazine fed military rifle developed from 1882 to 1891 and used by the armed forces of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and various other nations. It is one of the most mass-produced military bolt-action rifles in history with over 37 million units having been made since its inception in 1891, and, in spite of its age, it has been used in various conflicts around the world up to the present day.
This Model 1944 is a variant of the original Model 1891. It was introduced into service in late 1944 (with 50,000 service-test examples produced in 1943) and remained in production until 1948. They were produced from 1943 to 1948 at the Izhevsk arsenal. Its specifications are very similar to the M1938, with the unique addition of a permanently affixed, side-folding cruciform-spike bayonet. A groove for the folded bayonet is inlet into the right side of the stock. These were in use not only by the Soviet Union, but also its various satellite nations
The overall condition is nearing fine. Excellent action. Bright bore. This example sports a solid stock with less than average wear (minimal dents and dings with cosmoline residue around the receiver). Fully functioning bayonet. Numbers match. This example is Russian import marked on the left side of the barrel.
