you got robbed. CMP sells them for 75 bucks plus shipping (no mag), and from the reviews of them, folks have been getting brand new ones from ANNISTON. I hope at least you got the sights, because they come with the gun from CMP, otherwise you really got a hard riding in the caboose, with no reach around.

The ones I eyeballed at the NORTH STORE were in very nice condition, not too much of banged up stock and the bluing was about what you describe.

Thanks for the link, they're a bit cheaper than other sources. Most auction/sale sites have M44's listed for $175 to $300 and up, depending on condition, of course. As for the "reach around" comment, I'm an admin on a couple of other shooting boards, I've deleted my share of Saturday night drunken nonsense. I just figure they are uncultured morons and don't pay attention to them.

There is a possability you may have to adjust the lips on the mag to get it to work on your rifle. One I had to other one not, no big thing really. Havlin Sales give excellent service and are good people to deal with.

you guys are talking about 2 different rifes. The cmp rifles are US property marked and worth a lil more then a 44(c) post war civilian model. however the civilian models have walnut stocks and I prefer them to US property guns. 140 bucks is a good price and the scope is worth 50 bucks (in good condition) this one can be repaired easy. CMP 44's have not been 75 dollars for at least 5 years.
