    I got a modified M44 to be like a M38.. Someone turned down the bayonet lug off. Still cost me 350$... And it had aftermarket bolt handle and a ATI stock. 3 years ago, I bought a 91/30 for 80$. Was under 150 for them.

    We had a Simo Hayha sniper-course shoot in January, and used our old M 91's , M 91/24's and the odd M 91/30.
    Was minus 20C so camera froze up a bit.
    My old iron sighted M 24 (Finnish Civil Guard) did well at close range, (170 metres,) putting its 3 shots into 1 5/8".

    At longer range, (up to 500m) it shot off sight setting, as it had had the rear sight altered. (got a "new" sight now.)

    Bill at the shoot put two of his 3 shots into 1 3/16" at 500 metres with his iron sighted M24 Lotta (Civil Guard) rifle.

    Just telling you this so you can see how iron sights on these old rifles can still work.
    We plan on holding more Civil Guard shoots when farm work gets slower.
    We used targets copied exactly from those used by the Civil Guard in between the Wars.

    I thought I could attach pictures, but files won't seem to upload!

    All the best,
    Richard.

    I think the 44 barrel was heavier than the 38 as well. I don’t have one handy to compare though.

    Ain't by much.. Barrel profile measured there.

    Hmm.. I have an Ex-Dragoon with the octagon receiver; wonder what it's worth...
    I don't have a firearms problem; they all work perfectly well.

    At least maybe now bubbas will stop disfiguring those war relics :P

    To think that some of these made it through several wars, were stored in an arsenal for decades and then bought by Bubba just so he could say "f*ck it, Imma paint this to match muh John Deere".
    Harry Potter is a story about a school where both students and staff are required to carry a deadly weapon on their person at all times and somehow the left can't get enough of it.
