I just picked up my M44. I promptly took it apart to see how dirty it was inside. Everything is looking good so far. I will buy a steam cleaner from Walmart on Sunday and get the cleaning. I still wont be able to shoot until I find out how I am going to buy my surplus rounds. Sportsmanguide said they wont ship to my zip code. I am wondering if it was a store policy or county law or something. It was suck ass if I couldnt get any surplus rounds. Last resort would be to head up to a gun show. Does anyone know how much rounds cost at the gunshows? Online, you can get them for about $.12 each shipped. Also, does anyone know the link to see how "rare" my particular Mosin is?
