Captain Peter Adams brought back this Chinese Type 53 carbine after the end of his 3rd tour in Vietnam. He served in the U.S. Army from 1966-69 in the following units: Troop B 7th Squadron, 1st Air Cav Regiment; C Troop 3rd Squadron, 17th Air Cavalry Regiment; Troop D 6th Squadron 1st Armored Cav Regiment. Thanks to Matt for finding all this interesting information especially that Captain Adams was a direct descendant of Presidents John and John Quincy Adams.

Judi I bought this from a dealer in my state. I had no idea of the history behind the vet who brought it home until a friend of mine researched him. I was blown away with what he found. I believe the dealer told me it came out of a collection. It almost belongs in a museum! I have no intention of ever selling it. I only wish I knew the story behind its capture. I may try to get in touch with his family at some point to see if they know anything.
