Just acquired two Russian/Soviet weapons from my wife's boss. A Mosin-Nagant M1944 carbine rifle in excellent condition and a Pistol Pulyemet Shpagin PPsh-41 sub-machine gun in excellent condition. They were both passed down from his grandfather who served in WW2 and Korea, brought them home as spoils of war. grandson not the least interested in history or firearms so he gave them to me. I have some Garands and M1903's, these are my first Russian/Soviet arms. I know the M1944 was the last Nagant made and those are common and reasonably priced, How about the SMG? It has drum magazine and original canvas sling, heavy SOB too! Any and all information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
