Finally got the Mosin I've been looking for. Matching numbers, great looking bore and rifling. Chinese version of the M44 I think. It looks like the bayonet was removed and then the front sight moved back. Here's some pics. Any info you guys have would be great, also any advice on a relatively economical scout scope set up for it?

Looks like the bubbarized MN carbine I bought a couple years ago, for 25 bucks, but it is a Tula with barrel stamped 1937. I later scout scoped and made a lace up cheek riser for it. Groove diameter is .314", but very accurate with .316" cast boolits.

it's been 'sporterized'. I don't know of any original MNs with shortened stocks like that.

I figured it had been sporterized as its missing all of the front wood of the stock. The stock looks great though, whoever did it knew what they were doing.
