I have an FFL, and although I never make any money with it, I do buy a lot of (cheap) rifles for myself. So, when a friend asked me to order an M44, I ordered two, one for him and one for me. He got to pick, and I got a Russian M44 dated 1952, with no bluing, a fair bore and a lousy stock. So, I decided to "practice" on it.
All of the work involved was done with nothing more elaborate that a drill press, a Dremel tool and a Propane torch. Plus the usual assortment of hand tools. Some of the parts can be purchased in kit form from me. See this link J .
The trigger was worked on to reduce travel and over-travel. Ü Link to Trigger Pics.
The bayonet and front sight mount and the rear sight were removed and a flash suppressor (?) was added. Ü Link to Barrel Work.
A scope was mounted. Ü Link to Scope Base Installation
The bolt handle was "relocated". Ü Link to Bolt Handle Work
The stock was modified. Ü Link to Stock Work Photos
The metal was coated with a bake-on lacquer. Ü Link to Metal finishing Photos
A grasping ring was added to the cocking piece flange to enable engaging the safety.
The scope was zeroed and a load was worked-up.
