Almost...Each time I have stopped in the shop that has these I have found a Type 53 with a matching bolt but unfortunately this one has a m/m floor plate. As you can see the metal is very good as is the bore. The wood is a bit funky but not too beat up or cracked. This time the owner actually opened up three boxes before he pulled one out that had a matched bolt.. They are out there if you can sort through a few. He also mentioned that he had 6,000 of these sitting in a warehouse in China that he cannot get into the country because of the Clinton ban. OOPs..the receiver pic that is lighter is from another Type 53. Wood Wood stain Hardwood

Nice! I scored one recently at a Gun Show. Was looking for an M44 and a dealer had just picked one up for himself. I offered to buy it, he said no...but told me he had one at home that wasnt as in good condition. He said he would sell it to me if I came back the next day for $140. So next morning I called him and he apologized telling me he was wrong and the rifle he has was not an M44, but a Type 53. He said he would sell me the rifle for $120.00. It turned out to be an all matching numbers Type 53.
