They opened a Joe's store here in Spokane this weekend, stoppped by after drill and the place was a mad-house ! They had one M44 on display and after waiting 30 minutes for one of the counter guys to get free my wait was rewarded with a Tula M44; Surprised the H out of me ! Pretty deceant bore some old rust frosting under the refinish on bbl & recvr. Recvr is a round low-wall, as a bonus it is " P 60 " marked too. $ 97 OTD with mil discount.

It would be nice if Mupples Tulla 44 survey post came back, don't remember if this was an observed prefix.

That's the very first 'P-60' marked carbine I've seen. The fact that it's a Tula M44 to boot is great, too! Congrats on a really nice find.

Thats a great score and a decently marked Tula marking. Most are stamped poorly, and finding one that isn't, is a tough thing to do. Interestingly enough, I just found a rifle that is P60 marked just exactly like yours. I left it on the shelf, but it's suprising to see it is stamped just like yours.

Congratulations. Tula typically remarked and redated the tangs of reused receivers so that's not a sure sign it's a '44 Tula receiver. All 1944 Tula receivers are high wall, so it's likely an earlier receiver, even if just by a couple of years. Even without a clear date or arsenal you might be able to pin it down here.

When the "old/old" Gunboards is available again I plan on copying all the survey forum information over to these new boards, including mupples Tula carbine information.

P-60 is just another unknown mark that shows up with regularity. It can be fun to keep track of what type of rifles unknown marks show up on to see if a pattern can be established.

:eek: My 5 year old daughter really wanted me to add the "scary face" to the post. :D
Then put a pic of your real self as your avatar.

My 2 Tula M-44's

Nice find! I've got two 1944 Tula M-44's, one is "triangle 25" marked, and both have a star stamped into the finger groove on the right side of the stock. One also has screwed-in SSE's front and back, the other has wartime SSE's (none in the back, half slot in the front).

I forgot about my 1944 HEX Tula M-44, I added that pic along with my 1944 Tula M-38.

Congrats on your nice find, these are all uncommon rifles.
