This is a Russian M44 folding bayonet carbine. The carbine is in really nice condition. The stock is a newer stock. It has proof marks all over it and some scratches in the finish but no cracks The blued condition of the metal is about 80%+. The carbine has an import marking on the front of the barrel behind the bayonet lug. It is dated 1954 and has the Hammer and Cycle on the barrel as well. The tang date looks like it could be an 1896 receiver but it is not clear so we are going to ask for a C&R or FFL on this one.
