SKS Mosin: You are right. The Russians realized that the 91/30 was to big.So they replaced it with the M44.M44 was in full production in 1944
SKS Mosin: Nice Rifles....I wish I had 4 Type 53s..Got 1 and getting more soon,
Geeks With Games: That is a super clean carpet. Also, nice rifles!
Scott Bollinger: ..nice rifles !
101stairborne506pir: You're so lucky I'd love to own, just one Mosin. It's such an awesome rifle! ;) Btw, I subbed. You have a good channel, and some good vids! Can you also maybe check out my channel, and perhaps sub back? (Only if you want to) ;)
Hell Billy: Actually you are quite wrong. The front line soldiers of the Soviet Army were carrying 91/30s through the entire war, and some were carrying m38s. The m44 barely saw any use in the war on the front lines, it was more of a trench rifle. Army Ranger guy is right.
ArmyRangers1983: no I was being serious
JJ Willis: Just got a Model 53 for my birthday. Do you know if i can get a mosin nagant scope mount for it? I really want to take this rifle hog hunting and I need to put a scope on it. Please reply.
shoup2882: The Model 44 was not developed to replace the Model 1891, they were developed to replace the Model 38 because the Model 38 did not have the ability to mount a bayonet. The Model 38 and 44 were derived from the Model 91-30, not the Model 1891. You should check your facts before you start spouting "Knowledge"
fatthunder8: Love the SVT, that is freaking awesome! I wish they were cheaper; a semi-auto in 7.62X54r would be sweet. I've just received a type 53 from AIM myself. Stocks beat, bolt is from every part of the Soviet block, but the barrel and receiver are great and the thing busts clays @ 100 yards off-hand like a laser, and isn't 200 yards isn't bad either. For 100 bucks it's hard to do better these days. Great video, great rifles, and thanks for the info!
Roger Gold: Just bought a 53 made in 1955 on line from a ffl dealer in washington I hope it is as good as it looks. My plans are to have fun with it. Not a collector.
austin: @ZASurvivalist check out buds under century arms rifles. They just got some m53's in stock.
ZA_Survivalist: Sell me one of those type 53s? (I'm honestly interested) I sold my M44 about 2 years back and have been kicking myself ever since. No more M44s to be had in my neck of the woods..or even type 53s for that matter. Anyhow, get back to me.
motlencore89: they saw most there service in vietnam.
Wiggy's Wilderness: The T-53 was a good varient of the M44. The guns tend to have been used harder and they weren't taken care of very well, especially after they were in storage. But, with a little elbow grease, you can fix them up to be just about good as new, assuming there's any rifiling left in the barrel. The catalpa wood the Chinese used on the T-53 series stocks really is very nice looking if you ever refinish one of them.
sonick808: century has a discount if you buy two Chinese Type 53's, I think it's time to put the C&R to work again
Weston: My Type 53 has a Remington made Mosin Bolt. Its pretty cool and interesting how this gun was made and shoots. I have a video of me shooting it on this channel.
