I have a '52 Hungarian M44 that groups poorly. It may be because of the rail and pistol scope alteration I made, but at 50yds it really should be doing much better than it is. The barrel rifling looks ok but not stunning, and it's pretty old of course at this point so maybe it's a question of wear. But I removed the bayonet and am wondering if that may be an easy fix to improve accuracy if I put it back. Anyone have experience with M44's with and without their pokers? Would love to hear any insight. Thanks in advance! -The Col.
