I only had it for a short time because I bought it at a good price with the intention of selling it but dang! that was an awesome gun. I had the M44carbne version and it would draw a crowd at the range. Huge muzzle flash along with the bayonet attached and people would just stare. I really want to find another M44 sometime and keep it this time.
im a 5'9" 135 lbs small frame guy. im plan on buying a shoulder pad for the mosin nagant since i was advised that the recoil is pretty strong and you will not be able to fire many shots.
also, i will have to get a scope as well. i have found that i can't align the sights on long guns. prolly something to do with me being right handed BUT my dominant shooting eye is my left eye.
how would you say the recoil is on the mosin? how does it compare to a long shotgun for clay pigeon shooting, only other long gun i've fired.
