Chinese Type 53 Carbine, Cal. 7.62x54R
by Daniel F Date Added: Thursday 21 February, 2013
Not much can be added to what has already been said about the Chinese Type 53 rifles. At the time I write this review Bud's is out of stock on these rifles. I am not sure if any more will be available. The particular rifle that I received (a 1956) was probably no different than all the others. The metal was very good, and had no pitting or rust. The bore was fairly nice, as it was a little worn, but had plenty of rifling still visible (after cleaning).

The stock, however, was as expected: beat up and stored improperly! There was also a little bit of water damage. It appears as though a lot of the gouges and dents to the stock happened recently! There was relatively fresh wood showing, when compared to other damage to the stock. I am not sure what that means exactly, just a fact.

Overall, I got EXACTLY what I expected. Three of the four serial numbers matched (the bolt was different) and the rifle has plenty of "character". Would I buy it again? Absolutely!
