  • Polish Wz-48 trainers

    Two are up on firearmsales atm, if anyone is interested. They are fantastic little rifles (and accurate). 1955 & 1950 manufacture.

    I would've loved to pick one of these up if my safe wasn't already over capacity (and I could afford it), if you're looking for a .22, these are the ones to get!

      True, Sam!

      They've got great balance too and just so comfortable to shoulder. Built on the stock of an M-38 carbine, in case anyone didnt know.

      Fun when you're expecting *Boom!* and you get *Pfft!' instead lol

        Hmmm, very tempting. Have a Cat A PTA sitting on my dresser at home right now which I was thinking of using for one of those Norinco .22lr clones of the K98 (had a shoot of one out at Mudgee last weekend and was suitably impressed); why not get a genuine military trainer for only 50 bucks more? Would look right at home in my safe too, sitting next to my 91/30.

        Watch this space...

        Yeah, that's what got my hopes up :P The seller said it was 'on hold', I thought I was pretty quick to inquire, but not quick enough unfortunately

        Just had a quick peruse of that website (I usually stick to usedguns.com.au purely out of force of habit). Heaps of M38s & M44s currently listed & selling for around the $595-650 mark (the M-44s are post-war & non-Soviet manufacture though).

        Might be time to slip another Cat B PTA application in the mail tomorrow. I've had my heart set on a nice Polish M44 for a while but they don't seem to show up that often these days at reasonable prices, let alone genuine un-refurbed and laminated-stocked Soviet M38s M44s like zhuk's "flame-thrower" (see the recent forum shoot pics for further explanation). So, how do the Romanian & Hungarian ones stack up quality-wise in comparison?

      Firearmsales is good value, where I picked up the Polish trainer and also the firebreathing M-44 (yep there was a bayonet GSR! bit hard to see at night admittedly lol)

      Yes the Polish carbines have the best rep for accuracy but I dont know exactly how the other postwar comblocs stack up. Wouldnt think that Hungarian with the 10/10 bore would be too shabby though!

        Oh yeah, it was an M44; my bad (don't think I've actually heard of any M38s with laminated stocks)! I think I was about 8 or 9 beers in by the time you & Frenchy pulled the things out for the night-time photo shoot, so I guess that under the circumstances I could be excused for missing a pesky foot-long bayonet folded down the stock...

      Yeah thinking about it now I really should have fixed it for a couple of those shots! Might have been interesting to see if there was any difference in fire lol

        Hey groggy - almost certain I can see an SA stamp just forward of the hex receiver on the LHS Been to Finland at some stage! Cheers, Macca

        Makes sense, no way would it have been a post-1954 refurb. The Poles would have long been making their own carbines by that date.

          On the topic of Polish M44's, I have a little secret
          I haven't revealed this before today, as I've been waiting for the permit for some time now and I feel like I'm really pushing my luck with licensing, but the moment I spotted it I just couldn't resist :P
          I swore to myself that I'd take a break from the old 7.62x54r, at least until I'm eligible for a collectors license ( 9 months away, was probably foolish to think I could hold out for that long :P ) , but a Polish M44 was the first on my list since before I entered the world of firearms.
          I was lucky enough to purchase this Pole M44 from a member of the old forum, just a day before it went down.
          It's practically brand new.
          Fair to say I jumped on it without a second thought, deal with the consequences later :lol:
          I did have family back in the People's Republic of Poland, so there's my excuse :lol:
          It also has the old-style escutcheons.

          Yep, already onto it; sent off an enquiry first thing this morning! Waiting to hear back from him. Just missed out on a couple of mint Poles that Barrys Firearms had too (thanks S/S for the heads-up; I was just a few days too late).

          Am still keeping an eye on those Hungarians & Romanians too however a nice mint Pole is on the top of my list at the moment.

        Thanks SovietSamurai, I need to stop rolling for awhile to compose myself, but it's so bloody hard when you see something you don't have.
