I am new here but did want to share a few of my rifles this one I picked up for $200 from a local seller via an online classifieds. I'm thinking I got a good deal. Any input is greatly appreciated. The metal work is pristine but it looks like at one point someone tried to refinish the stock. I hope the pictures do it justice.

Some Polish M44 stocks have pressed-in escutcheons, but that stock looks like it may have originally been in a darker finish before Bubba got hold of it, which would imply it possibly being a Russian stock. Hard to say.

+1 And the wood doesn't look like beech. The barrel bands also don't look Polish but it's tough to tell from the pics. Are there any markings on them? Anyway, she should be a fun shooter. Welcome to the Forum.

The stock is defeinetly not Polish and has been refinshed. Its most likely a Russian or Romanian stock that was redone.
