From what I am discovering, this is a pressure test rifle.Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
No, it’s a simple rifle for training inexperienced users. It is virtually identical in design (if not dimensions) to the Soviet trainer of the early ‘50s.And please note that none of the requisite bits and pieces that make up a pressure test rifle are present (i.e., gas relief ports, pressure/streets gauge or the ability to utilize one.)I’m sorry but it’s not a pressure test rifle.

From the " 1960.11." Date mark it is Chinese.
Too well made to be a conversion of a normal
M-N.
A Min Bin trainer, made in the same year as the last production of Type 53...in fact, simple version...no bayonet, no magazine, simple trigger guard, un- inletted stock;
Overall, a nice piece.
Chambering??? Probably 7.62x54R ( too complicated to make a 7.62x39 bolt head???).
Rear sight reminiscent of Carcano M38!!!.

As an uncommon rifle (in the US China Imports scene) a high price is to be expected.

It's not a trainer. This is initial bullet speed testing gun ("скоростная винтовка/карабин"). They were produced in long rifle and carbine configurations, and both types also existed in barrel pressure measuring configuration ("крешерные винтовки"), with attached pressure measuring device - "крешерный прибор". I do not know is it Chinese, but Soviets had the same model
Unclear when Soviets started production of the simplified models for such purpose. At least prior to 1945 were used regular configuration rifles, produced with higher tolerances. In 1945 these rifles were marked with C or CK letters, which mean "Скоростная" in Russian

If someone is going to prove me wrong I’m honored that you’re the one to do it! ;)
