Chinese Type 53 Carbine, Cal. 7.62x54R
by Daniel M Date Added: Friday 08 February, 2013
Holy cow did I luck out! The Type 53 I received looks just like the advertised picture. I was expecting the worst and would have been happy with JUST decent metal but this thing is in great shape. Dents, yes. Dings, yes. Gouges, 2 very small ones. I have seen 3 year old guns in worse shape. Bluing is at about 70%, wood is really great if not a lot darker than I was expecting. Oh, and mine is absolutely caked with cosmoline... Which is better than a dry and beat up weapon. The ONLY thing I'm not happy about is a rusty buttplate. But since I am going to refinish everything on it, it is a minor detail. It's also weird that all numbers match except the bolt... That alone is not uncommon, what's uncommon is that the bolt is Russian. anyway, awesome purchase and the best $120 I have ever spent!
