Chinese Type 53 Carbine, Cal. 7.62x54R
by Mark W Date Added: Thursday 17 January, 2013
Received my gun today from my FFL dealer. After reading the reviews, I was prepared for what I saw when I got the gun. Gun looks very rough. The stock needs to be completely refinished and I will need to completely clean any remaining cosmoline off of it. Gun kind of looks like it was pressure washed. Not sure. All the metal looks good and seems to be functional. One problem I did see was the magazine release lever at the bottom is very loose. Seems like there is not enough tension to hold it in place. Once I get it torn down, I will see what needs to be done to fix this. Overall, Buds had a great price, fast shipment and I would say I received a "fair" condition gun not "good" like it was rated----giving it a 4 star might be a bit high. First time owner of a gun like this and excited about tearing into it and fixing it up. Thanks Buds!
