I just picked up a m44 Saturday and the first thing that stood out was the stocks finish which is very similar to that of a k98. After going through the rifle I couldn’t not find any refurb stamps and only really noticed marks on either side that match up to the end of a k98 cleaning rod perfectly. Just want to find out if anyone else thinks it’s a ddr refurb.

It has German plywood used for M98, Russians took from Germany after the war, russian plywood has less tight grain.

We used M44 Carbines indeed.
A workmate was issued a M44 in basic training, he was Lt.Col, when GDR ended.

There were also GDR refurbed M44, new barrels made at Suhl(saw blaks at a gunsmith workshop years ago). On those inner parts are maked with elctro pencil to match the weapon serial, Stock and handgurad marked in barrel channel with pencil. Very nice workmanship, good triggers. Had such a specimen, that later spent time in Egyp or Syria as secret military aid.
It had EG police property stamps(circle is sqaure, like my Makarow has).
I sold it to a board member vom Italy.
