In 1943 some 50,000 trials carbines were built specifically for urban combat and tested in battle as the Soviet Army marched through Germany at the close of WWII. They are essentially an M38 with an attached side-folding bayonet and were adopted in 1944 as the 7.62 mm Carbine, Model of the Year 1944, commonly known as the M44 in the US. The M44 is the only model of Mosin Nagant that was produced in significant quantities in the Soviet Union itself after WWII with production ending in 1948. It is also the model most widely duplicated by other countries during the Cold War.
