Once again, Buds pulled through. I received my MN 53 very quickly. Bolt serno was different. Everything cycles smooth, and I have a clean barrel and crown on her. Stock is beat to hell,and it almost looks like the name BOB is carved into it. She is going to need some TLC, but for less than $140 including transfer fees, she is going to make me happy. Saved my beautiful 91/30 and I get to make me a true truck rifle! Thanks again! I do wonder if there were any Chinese soldiers named Bob now...

Ordered my type 53 on Sunday and picked it up today (Wednesday). It was not as bad as some but about what I was expecting after reading the reviews. Kind of beat up but nothing to bad. Nothing cracked or broken. Missing the cleaning rod. No rust. Couldn't beat the price.

Picked up mine today, very happy with it all things considered. Bore looks like it will clean up nicely with a little work, plan on refinishing the wood, no major dings or dents that I wouldn't be able to get out. Not a whole lot of cosmoline on the outside, stock seems pretty dry, caked up a bit inside the reciever/mag. But I have to say, this rifle has THE most amazing trigger I have ever felt. All matching #'s. Very happy.

This is a perfect piece of history! My type 53 came pretty well preserved in cosmoline as to be expected, the stock is pretty rough, as to be expected but all of the numbers match and the bore on this rifle is outstanding! I am gonna restore this rifle to its former glory(or better) and place it on a mount on my wall because it is just a beauty! Thanks BUD'S for hooking me up this time, because my last type 53 wasn't worth reviewing.

My second review.. just received my second of 4 rifles from buds.at my FFL. very fast shipping as always.. the stock looks like the Chinese robotic beaver had at it.. the rifling is great very shiny strong.. the barrel was full of cosmoline i think that preserved it as the first rifle had none and needed lots of cleaning...no numbers matched.. they had on the first rifle except the bolt.. but overall its still a deal.

Still a good value. This carbine came with a dry and dirty stock. And worm holes at no extra charge!! It had a small linear crack along the hand grip. I glued and fixed it...it was not a defect that would hinder any firing. I stripped the cosmoline and will use tung oil to bring back the original color tone. As stated in other posts, it is a fixer upper. The bore is good and no rust, just cosmoline. Finishing it up so I can try it out. Happy with the overall rifle condition.
