Century once again offers you rare examples of Sino-Soviet cooperation from a bygone era! The Type 53 is a copy of the famous Russian M44 carbine, and like its predecessor is chambered in 7.62x54R. We were able to locate a cache of these carbines where they have been preserved for decades just waiting to be re-issued. Needless to say - these won't be around forever. If you are a collector of Mosin-Nagants, this is a fantastic opportunity to add a hard-to-find carbine to your collection. 5 rd. integral mag. Barrel: 20.25", Overall: 40", Weight: 9 lbs. Condition: Good.

The wood looks like it's been dragged through a few rice paddies, but the metal is all good. Cleaned it up and took it to the range with my Mosin and a box of ammo. Kicks like a mule, making the Mosin feel like a .22 in comparison. The old iron sights are good, and it got a few of the older folks come over to take a look. A good time for very few dollars! Once again, Thanks, Bud's!

My 1st order from Bud's and I couldn't be happier. Great gun, all matching numbers, amazing trench art! Everything in perfect working order. Of course, covered in cosmoline, but I wouldn't expect anything different. The weapon was in my hands in less than a week!
I wish I had bought two!
I'm now a loyal Bud's customer for life. Buy with confidence!

It came as described, ugly but serviceable. The bore was shiny and the action locked up tight. Bud's had the best price of the e-tailers I searched when I looked for it. It cleaned up nicely and is accurate enough for a surplus rifle. Thanks Bud's.

Fast shipping, as always with Bud's. However, bolt not same SN as weapon (as Bud's stated there might not be a match) and weapon will not chamber a round. Have tried a bolt of another person's Type 53, and it works fine in this rifle. The bolt will not chamber a round in his weapon either.
