Chinese Type 53 Carbine, Cal. 7.62x54R
by Thomas N Date Added: Monday 17 December, 2012
Chinese type 53, $119 . Purchased this as a project shooter; minimum metal work but expected needing wood work. I am not dissipointed. Metal shows reasonable wear with loads of the worst form of cosmoline (?) I've experienced. It took a whole day of soaking in solvent. bronze brushing the bore and tooth brush scrubbing the rest of the metal to clean out the stuff; Bore looks good. Slight trace of rust color on outside of barrel in areas hidden by the stock; easily fixed. I expected to experiment with warm bluing. The stock has dings, dents, gouges but looks like they should be fixable without much trouble using common skill level working on used household furniture. I wanted to buy a second one but sold out; will buy another if they become available at the same price, not higher price. No cleaning rod or accessories. Serial numbers match EXCEPT BOLT IS DIFFERENT.
