I was quite surprised at the condition of the Type 53. The furniture was showing it's age, which I expected, but otherwise the rest of the firearm was in good to very good condition. Put two dozen rounds through it at the range last Saturday and it kept good 4" groupings at 20 yards and 6" groupings at 50 yards. Considering how old these guns are and how well it shot out of the box (Even with the cheap Tula ammo I fed it), it will go into rotation as one of my range rifles.

This was my first purchase from Bud's (March 2014) and I was very happy with my shopping experience. First off, shipping was prompt and communication from Bud's (in regards to tracking #, carrier etc) was excellent. The gun arrived in just 3 business days.

The Type 53 itself arrived in expected condition - covered in cosmoline, and pretty greasy overall. The stock wasn't even close to the worst I've seen, but it did have it's fair share of dings and dents, however nothing major like cracks or deep gouges. You absolutely can't fault the product for these imperfections at all; they're to be expected when ordering an issued T53.

The metal was in good condition upon first inspection, and - most importantly - the bore showed well upon un-boxing. Although quite dirty and caked in protective grease, the rifling was crisp and there wasn't any pitting or rust/oxidation in the bore. Nor was there any rust or degradation on the all the exterior metal surfaces. After cleaning, the bore is shiny and smooth, and the rifling looks very sharp and not worn at all. Overall, I was very satisfied with the bore quality. All other metal parts of the gun are in similar condition, with little wear to the finish, and no rust/oxidation or pitting.

I would absolutely take the chance and order a Type 53 from Bud's. If the gun arrives in a condition you're unable to work with (assuming you're buying one to lightly restore & feel confident shooting time and time again), simply refuse transfer from your FFL and the gun goes back to Bud's - no questions asked! It doesn't get better than that!

Awesome guns... I ordered two of them so I could keep one origional and the other I am taking to the next level with the archangel stock kit also on BUDS, Both guns arrived with plenty of cosmoling so be ready to get cleaning... But once it was removed, it was beautiful and had very few blemishes on them. nice clean bores and all the pieces were nice and tight! I can't wait to shoot!

Really really impressed with this rifle...stock was better than what I expected only a few scratches. The metal was also great not to mention the barrel. I highly recommend this rifle to anyone who is thinking about It... don't hesitate and get them while you still can for this price.
