Yep, they sure are fun. Enjoy mine. Continue to have fun with it.
Don't hate me for keeping you busy for days...Hahaha.That was a GREAT video, what it did to that cinder block was VERY impressive!!!
Thanks for the link, I watched that video and of course wanted one myself and if he is right and there are still some out there I may look into adding one to my collection!
I also like all the history behind the gun, I wouldn't want to be on the wrong end of that !
I'm off to see what else I can learn about their back ground! VERY COOL guns you guys own, and in 7.62 how can ya go wrong?
Click on that link, and then you have about a gazillion pages of info that you can get to by clicking on more links. That site 7.62x54r.net is pretty much the Holy Grail of Mosin info.You wrote:

Be prepared for information overload.
Cool, I'm going to be on the look out, Thanks!
Those mosins are like potato chips!! Started off with a 1941 91/30, got a 1938 Tula 91/30, then a 1944 fin M39 and then a 1944 M44. Is there a support group I can join???? Powerful, cheap to shoot and FUN!!!!!!I have three.
1929 Izhevsk 91/30 Hex reciever #'s matching, good bore and shooter
1953 Hungarian M-44 #'s matching. Outstanding rifle in very good shape.
91/59 Carbine built from a 1942 Izhevsk 91/30 buttplate #'s dont match. Dark bore but good rifling.
They are addictive and fun. Everybody loves to see the fireball when you shoot these old guns. Im sure I will end up with more. I would like to have a Remington made Mosin and a Fin made mosin to add to the collection. Right now even the mosin's are too high. I will wait until the price gouging goes down.
Like a laser!! Sights are head and shoulders above the regular mosin sights! Front sight is like an M1. The trigger is the real difference!! Has to be felt to be believed!!! Two stage with a crisp break. Love it!!Hornet......how does the finn shoot?
