Chinese Type 53 Carbine, Cal. 7.62x54R
by Wade S Date Added: Tuesday 23 July, 2013
Well, I knew what to expect when I ordered it. It's a boat paddle, but it's still a pretty cool old rifle. The barrel is rough and dark, but will still clean up OK and be fun to shoot. It's all there, and the stock is rough, but no cracks. I've seen people fix them up and refinish them and they clean up well. Purists won't like it, but it's not like they are terribly rare. And keep in mind what you pay for it; it's unreasonable to expect a museum piece, but you can have a cool carbine with a hellacious muzzle flash that will make little kids and sissies cry, and you can empty the magazine for roughly $1.00. That's fun on a budget. Go for it!
