Having owned 6 Mosin-Nagant M-1944 Carbine's and 3 of them being Chinese Type-53's, I only saw this once. My Dark Stocked 1960 Factory-26 Type-53 had it stamped on the Left Rear Side of the Stock, like a Type-56 SKS Carbine. My other Type-53 from 1960, with the light Colored Chu Wood, did not, it was stamped on the Butt Plate, Having never seen this on any other Year of Type-53 other than 1960, I would guess that by this time, when for some reason, they needed to make the Type-53 for one more Year, and also knowing that the SKS was in full swing for 4 Year's by then, sometime in that limited run, they switched from the Butt Plate to the side of the Stock. This one which I got 4 Year's ago, is my Favorite Type-53 because of the Stamping on the Stock. I am wondering is this Rare? or Common? how may of you all have a 1960 like this? Paul

Paul:

All Type 53 Mosins produced in 1960 have the serial number stamped on the left side of the butt stock, not the buttplate like other Mosin rifles and carbines. Your example, pictured above, looks like a beautiful example. Congrats!

1960 made T53 have the number on the stocks.
On earlier t53 the S/N was added on a refurb work.
