Heya guys, I'm selling a gun I purchased months and ago and haven't even taken out of the gun safe. It's a Chinese Type 53 Carbine (what I've been told it's a copy of the Russian M44?). It has the flip out bayo and from what I can tell, the orginial Chinese sling (has Chinese markings all over it). It is a NON matching # rifle. The bore looks good for being nearly 60 years old, I'm not a expert but I can still see the groves and a bit of shine w/o even using a flashlight. I've never shot the rifle. Asking $150 for the rifle/sling/bayonet. I live on the southern Oregon Coast but I will be moving up to Albany on Sept 9th, so we could set up for a possible transaction then also.
