Chinese Type 53 Carbine, Cal. 7.62x54R
by Jon H Date Added: Wednesday 24 July, 2013
Rec'd this weapon a few months ago. The thing was tough to look at when I picked it up. I bought it for a project so no worries there. The stock looked like it was stored underground for the past few years. There appeared to be water damage on the buttstock. Except for the buttplate, the metal was in decent shape ~ 80% and the bore was good. It also passed the field gauge test at my FFL. The bolt was mis-matched but for a $120 shooter - who cares. I refinished the hefty little carbine and took it to the range. The thing is fairly accurate to 100yards and fun to shoot. What more could you ask from iron sites of this kind. It turned some heads at the range - and brused my buddy's shoulder. Buy this rifle if you want to invest some time fix'n it up. I would give it 2 stars if I expected a good condition rifle...4 stars because I wanted a project.

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