With the same basic design as the famous Model 44, the Chinese Mosin-Nagant Type 53 is a high-quality rifle with an impressive combat record. These rifles were among the first firearms to be produced under China's Communist regime. The Type 53 saw extensive use in the Vietnam War, as the Chinese supplied these carbines in large numbers to their follow communists in North Vietnam. The Type 53 is near identical to the Soviet Model 44 with small changes to the bayonet and cleaning rod and a more rugged finish. This rifle features a fixed front sight with an adjustable leaf rear sight. Its wood is in fair condition and its metal and bore are in good condition.
