Mosins & Soviet Arms / Re: Chinese Type 53 Trials Carbine
« Last post by Justin Hell on Today at 12:55:54 AM »
I keep running into my T53 over the last few days....and haven't cleared her throat. My last SKS has her in need of some new wall mounts to be made.   I should take that shoulder thumper out for a date soon.

Your new acquisition is quite the looker...nice score.   I doubt I will ever let another slip by, but they are pretty uncommon to see in these parts.

I am curious about the 'trials' aspect, hadn't the Russian M44 tuned in the idea of shortening a half century old gun like nine years earlier?  Could these be marked differently for another reason?  Like the SKS 'accuracy gun'?

Just buy this and rent it to us all when you are done....headspace gauges even. :)

I have a Cabella's card...but cannot get into Canada.
Therefore I don't go to Canada...so I don't get separated from my ten round babies.   cry1 :-[ rofl

The immigration laws there are just cruel...and I didn't even want to emigrate....I just want to walk out of a Cabella's with a smile JUST ONE TIME!

Sweet that your nation still has a little bit of sense.

SKS Gunsmithing & Troubleshooting / Re: Temperamental SKS

I would love to see a headspace sticky... that isn't what she said... or was it?   dance2

Troubleshooting this gun was educational.  Something that might be great to have around is an instructional for checking, and fixing headspace issues. I have one gun I never headspaced that has a brand new bolt. I am sure a cache of those Tapco bolts will turn up...it couldn't hurt to have folks in the know share what they have done to ensure a safe firearm with either surplus or aftermarket bolts.

Now that the imports (again) have dwindled...there may be more folks building SKSs out of parts. I hadn't really considered it much since I got that DB designed without the locking lug.  After this thread it makes me consider a couple others that while functioning....may not be quite safe. 

Anyone got a brand new bolt, some files and a decent camera?  Someone with those prerequisites could potentially save lives.... That blown up SKS LC posted awhile back is a great example of why. :)

Nice P32!  thumb1 

I had seen his email blast and looked over the couple of photos he always includes in the item listing link but it being a Mosin I didn't pull the trigger.  Looks like you got yourself a really nice one though! 

Thanks!  :) She's a winner!


Those zany Chinese and their oddball serializing schemes!  :o

Well yeah, I got a Murray's firing pin and a spare bolt for my trouble and a few bucks.  The main thing was that the original bolt works  and the firearm can be used.  The way things were going, I wondered if it was ever going to work.  From the forty or so shots, it seems accurate enough too...nothing to complain about.  I didn't really heat up the barrel to see what happens then but I really don't fire like that any how so...I'm good with it.

These are hard to find in original matching condition.  Good choice.

Thanks M08!  :) I'm really very pleased with it.

I think I got mine from Apex gun parts years ago but Iíve seen them at Midway USA & Cheaper than Dirt as well.

Magna Matic also makes a nice AK sight tool that adjusts the windage drum as well but not sure if the part that moves the post will clear the hooded SKS sight. Iíve not had to fiddle much with windage and when I did, a socket & C clamp did the trick.
