Hi all,

I bought a cheap Mosin M44 at a show - was in a rush and it was fairly cheap.

Having come home, I discovered that the the rifling somehow disappears along the last several inches towards the muzzle. Any chance I am missing something obvious here and Mosins were somehow made that way intentionally for some reason (not all obviously, but at least some) or it's a complete lemon? I am grasping at straws here...

Thanks,

JP
