Chinese Type 53 Carbine, Cal. 7.62x54R
by Kenneth L Date Added: Friday 22 February, 2013
Wow, this gun is a mess. I expected the stock to be rough, but even still I was disappointed. There was a ton of surface rust on most of the metal parts of the gun. I expected a bit of a project so I accepted the transfer. As I got home and started to disassemble the gun I realized it was worse than I had thought. The bottom of the barrel is rusted, more than just surface rust. The bolt also had a fair amount of rust in certain parts. The magazine assembly is terribly rusted, mostly where it fits into the stock.

I figure I will need to order AT LEAST a bolt assembly to make this usable. Plus a few extra hours refinishing the stock and trying to clean surface rust. Im still debating whether or not to order a new mag assembly online. In my opinion this gun should be rated FAIR at best. Probably not even worth the 119 considering the time and money I will need to sink into it. These surplus guns are hit or miss, this was a miss.

I ordered a soviet mosin (also from Buds) a few weeks ago and it was beautiful.
