First off I am a big WWII fan so I am think about one of these guns. They are cheap and from that era. I am not wanting one for protection in home unless I get an M44 w/bayonet and stab the intruder. I have called a few places around town and I have found them from $139-$159. I first found 3 M44. The first one was $139 and not laminated w/o bayonet. The second($159) was laminated and also had the bayonet. The third was $159 with no bayonet but was laminated. I called another place that had a Nagant that was the 91/30 for $149. I did not get to see it but he said it was a beautiful gun and did not appear to ever be issued. www.aimsurplus.com have them for $80 but I am still new to the gun world and do not know anyone with a FLV license and I'm sure a gun shop with it would mark it up quite a bit on me. What should I do?
