    So I currently have a M38 and was thinking about picking up a M44, but since the M44 is basically a clone of the M38 with a bayonet I am not sure I should. Any thoughts on the subject? (Other than the traditional, everyone needs more guns).

    How about this, "Everyone needs more variations of Mosin's".:D Of course get an M44 too, it's got a foldable bayonet, what's not to like?

    The M44s usually have better bores than the M38s. I love my M44, and the bayonet comes in handy when you need a place to stick the rifle.

    I agree with Deer Hunter. I have never seen an M38 with a nice bore, but I've bought several M44s in pristine condition.

    It's pretty much the same thing if you want another rifle in the carbine length go for it.

    M44!
    Deer hunter is right, that is the most useful bayonette I've ever encountered.
    I'm actually really happy to hear someone say that. Keeps the dirt away!
    M38's are more expensive, and not really worth the money if you want to shoot them. Just for collecting if that ever applied to a mosin.

    If for no other reason get a MN 1944 so you can compare it to your MN 1938 later you may come across a 91/30 or even an 1891 then look for a Finn or two.:D
