    Were there Mosin Nagants imported into the US befor 1968? I just picked up a mbers matching 1945 M44 carbine and could not find the import markings. I removed the grip and the stock; have gone over barrel and receiver with a flashlight, and cannot find it. Did they use a symbol or such before 1968? Is there someplace I should check where it might be hidden?

    All the ones I’ve seen with import marks are very obvious. I’ve never seen any that were hidden.

    I've found found several references to guns free of import marks online - quite in the rare category. It would be cool if it was brought back, but that would be pure conjecture.

    Correction above. Not quite rare.

    No such thing as a rare Mosin. Stalin himself could have carved his name in the stock. It's worth the same as another Mosin. Hex receiver is about as exciting as they get.

    There are actually quite a few Mosin models that are extremely rare, there is an Estonian model that only 4000 were built and if you get your hands on one and want to sell it to me for the 300 dollar price most base mosins go for please give me a call first!

    If you get a Finnish M56 Mosin chambered in 7.62 x 39 please also call me!

    Good luck finding one of the lend lease Mosins... I doubt anyone that has one would ever sell it.

    If anyone knows of an unmolested New England Westinghouse Mosin for sale at around $300 please let me know. Much appreciated :)
