    Default Is this a Romanain M44?

    My son noticed the different markings. Circle B on the buttstock & 02 stamp. P R R in laurel or wheat wreath. Arrow in triangle, no fletching, which comes up from the base of the triangle.

    Pics coming if it's worth posting.

    Thanks!

    Cirle B with an 02 is a Hungarian stock on a Romanian M44. I've seen a lot of parts swapped between Hungarian and Romanian M44's. My first Hungarian M44 had a Romanian bolt and my first Romanian M44 has a Hungarian bolt. My current Romanian M44 has a Hungarian bolt.

    Definitely Romanian with a Hungarian bolt. I have the same model, same year. Another indicator is that wood on stock is beech not birch. Yours is in really nice shape, mine had some sort of oily grime on it which I was able to take care of.

    Hungarian bolt will have the factory logo of the Hungarian factory, the 02.
