Good point. But with my memory, then I would not remember that such a rifle exists. The solution is to find another so I can sell it to ya! I did ask the vendor to let me see all his boxed M44 rifles. Nothing else that interested me. A Century rifle by the way. Most of what I am seeing in bulk now are the Rguns marked rifles.I guess I haven't been listening or I'm getting forgetful. The only real solution is to sell it to me and then I'll remember there are XO marked M44s.
