Nice collection of M44s

Are you collecting by country or by manufacturer?
There is a nice variety of furniture

IN WI we did not have Big 5s, but our Fleet & Farm store sold M44s by the ton; generally at $109 and on sale down to $79 back in the day. Great fire ball shooters. I aways wanted the M44 1944 Tulas or late date almost new Russian 1948 and 1947 dated examples that came in a paper wrap with a tin of ammo. I guess the Big 5s were more like our Dunhams sports store, rather than a farm supply store like F & F . I remember the old forum had great stories of all the great rifles they found at Big 5s. A sort of out west sports chain.
To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.
