    I have a m44 and I love it! I now want an m38 but am having issues finding them for sale for a good price. I dont really want it counterbored this time. My m44 is counterbored and I am deadly accurate with just the iron sites at 100 yards.

    I was thinking of just buying a barrel and all the parts, a new stock and assemble all of it. My current m44 is not matching, except the bolt is all matching so that made me think that I could just build one and it should be good.

    So a few questions, is there anything I should worry about or be sure of? I am having issues locating a barrel with sights on it. Seems that they take all that off for some reason. Anyone know where I can get one with the sights on it still?

    Any place you recommend to get the different parts from?

    Or if someone knows where I can get a good deal on a complete m38 I would be interested, hell, i'd trade my all matching, great condition yugo 24/47 for an m38 that is not counterbored and has good metal.
