Chinese Type 53 Carbine, Cal. 7.62x54R
by Geoff C Date Added: Monday 04 February, 2013
Good rifle for the price. Getting a good one seems to pure luck. There was no cosmoline on the rifle to deal with. The metal is in real nice shape with decent bluing and no rust that I could find anywhere. The bore looks good with strong rifling and no counterbore. The trigger is very smooth compared to the Russian triggers The stock looked pretty bad to be expected with plenty of dings and chunks missing. The only thing I really wasnt happy about was that the rifle failed a field gauge check for headspace. I swapped the bolt from another mosin and the headspace checked out. I had the same headspace issue with the bolt when tried on another mosin, so now I have to spend more money on a different bolt head. Other than that, I think the rifle will be a pretty decent shooter.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
