M44 (other countries)

Others Countries - Mosin Nagant Model of 1944, and China Type-53

In the years following World War II, many Soviet-influenced nations behind the Iron Curtain adopted production of the Mosin Nagant. China also followed suit. The most prolific manufacturing was based on the Model of 1944 design. The Soviet Union also directly provided some Izhevsk Arsenal carbines to Satellite Nations, and these specimens exhibit refurbishment features or markings that are specific each country.
