    Chinese Type 53 Carbine, Cal. 7.62x54R $119.00 SHIPS FREE
    This ad has been up on Buds forever. Every time I stop in I stare at it and think, "I want one of these." I don't hunt, although I 100% support hunting. The only other rifle I own is a .22. I just feel like I need a rifle in a large caliber. Having one that's pre beat up is a plus to me. After all it can only get better if I play with it. And if I lose some parts on the floor, well, I don't have a lot invested in it anyway.
    Anybody out there have one of these? What do you think of it? I like the carbine length. I think now I need one.
    If the ad is not allowed, the gun is a Mosin copy Chinese type 53 in 762X54R, which is really cheap right now. Of course 762X39 used to be a bargain too. According to the reviews these are VERY beat up and cosmolined, but functional.

    I hade a mosin carbine and rifle. I went through a phase where I picked up one of everything when I got an 03 ffl. Ended up with about 50 guns I never shot lying around the house. The carbine shoots a ball of flame about 2 feet out. They are a lot of fun to shoot though.
