It's hard to explain why, but the Chinese T53 carbine is a definite favorite of ours. It's not a pretty gun by any means, and it's generally not considered to be a tack driver when it comes to accuracy, but they are reliable, fun, and inexpensive both to purchase and to shoot.  Where else can you find a full size centerfire rifle these days that uses cheap ammo (surplus 7.62 x 54r military ammo for these costs barely more than .22 LR ammo lately), and which can be purchased for around $100? 

If you like military surplus battle rifles that have some character, the Chinese Type 53 certainly qualifies.  The batch we have in stock is honestly pretty typical of what you usually see in the Type 53.  They are generally in fair-good condition, which is actually pretty good for a T53.  All of the rifles have their folding bayonets, and as is commonly the case the stocks are rough but the metal is in pretty good shape.  Most of the Chu-wood stocks have some marks and gouges, but none are cracked.  None have cleaning rods, and none are all matching, though most of these rifles match except for the bolt.  No accessories are included with these rifles.

The pictures we've posted are intended to be representative of what you'll receive.  With a little elbow grease they should all clean up nicely and shoot pretty well, as the bores all show strong lands and grooves, though they are all a bit dirty and may have a little surface rust from storage.  If you're looking for a Mosin-Nagant pattern rifle to mod, these are awesome for that.  Since the wood is usually the roughest part, toss it and drop it in a new stock, add a scope mount, and you've got a great sporter.

As is always the case with surplus rifles, specific conditions will vary from rifle to rifle, so if there's anything specific you want or have questions about, just ask us.  We'll be happy to help!
