    So here is a nice little 1943 Izhevsk M44, excellent bore, great shooter, good wood, nice metal/finish. One of about 50,000 produced in 1943 (compared to 3.6 million in '44). Has a refurb stamp on the stock, but everything on the rifle matches and appears consistent.

    So what would you value it if it were yours? 11237579_10206216464424001_2031501764077880988_o.jpg 12027691_10206216464544004_3811233664749763938_n.jpg 12038480_10206216464944014_3748584667922142384_n.jpg 12065587_10206216566146544_4432259027743595382_n.jpg

    And that site won't help find a value. Knowing it's a 7/10 rarity is kind of ambiguous at best.

    Honestly the carbines have not increased in value like the 91/30s. The sudden disappearance from the market has driven the 91/30s up in price while some of the 44s can still be found online for around 250 and up.

    I would think 300 easily but i would recommend a search of gunbroker and the other sites to see what you can find.

    You can also use gunvaluesboard.com as I have found those guys helpful at time.

    The 1943's do fetch a premium over other years of m44. Would love to ditch my 1946 for one some day. Nice rifle!

    While visiting my LGS today, I saw a create full of M38"s that were in good shape. They were marked at $259. A year ago they were priced at just over $100. The current selection of M38's showed all to be in good shape.
    If I were looking into getting a new rifle I would purchase one of the testing kits.

    I found one on GunBroker started at $350, no bids when I looked. I didn't look at any completed auctions because I'm not looking to sell, just curious. With the ammo and accessories I got with this, I paid less than $200 for the rifle.

    There are some available for 299 at the best price it seems.

    A 1943 M44? Really? They only made 50,000 of them.
