For sale or trade is my Chinese Type 53 Mosin Nagant Carbine. This rifle is in overall good condition, and shoots well.

Bolt does not match the rifle, however fired brass indicates good headspace. Butt plate on this rifle was missing when I received it, and I have replaced it with a well fitted Hungarian plate. Otherwise the rifle is in great shape, with beautiful wear patterns and rock solid mechanics. This is a great rifle to show off or shoot. Bore is dark and rough with strong rifling, accuracy is perfectly acceptable for the model. Trigger is actually quite good for the model.

*Pictured sling NOT included
