    the guy i bought my m44 from also had a gun that looked simular to the m44, it was short and it felt like 2 or 3 lbs lighter, i didnt really pay much attention to it because it was in pretty bad shape. it had alot of crap in the bore and the stock looked like crap, he told me $100 for either one. he didnt know much about it, he had 7.62x39 ammo for it i told him i wouldnt try to shoot it because of the 7.35 cal on top of the barrel, and if i was him i would definitly clean the bore first. but i told him i would try to find out something about it, so that leads me here....anyone got anything? i wish i would of looked at it a little more, but i was ready to shoot the m44

    The Italians built the Carcano M38 in 7.35 caliber at one time.

    Won't work and shouldn't even be attempted! The 7.35mm Carcano is a completely different round. It has an odd bullet diameter of something like .298, where the 7.62x39 has a bullet diameter in the vicinity of .310.

    Lots of Carcano collectors out there. He may get a little more for it than 100 bucks. Still, if you must buy a Carcano for shooting, get the more common 6.5mm version, the ammo is easier to find.

    IMO you done good with the M44.

    Ammo for the 7.35 Carcano is a handloading proposition or you have to get it from places that handle obsolete ammo. And it's spendy!

    Another thing that turns me off about Carcanos in general is the need for a stripper clip.
