My first purchase from impactguns. I expected this rifle to be beat up, but surprisingly not at all. Bore is like a mirror now. Polished the bolt, safety check done-firing pin is perfect, head space is also good. One thing that I would complain about this order, is that it didn't came with a sling. So i give it a four star. Right now, I'm in the process of refinishing the wood stock. I can't wait to fire it!!
Nice rifle, but poor representation by Impact Guns,

This Chinese MN 53 was my first purchase from Impact Guns. I expected it to be rough and battle scared. Unfortunately, "Poor Condition" is a more accurate statement. Be ready to spend hours cleaning, oiling, and scrubbing off rust. The stock was moist to the touch when received and I'm not sure how that can be explained. It must be refinished due to its condition. In the end, I'll make it look nice, but buyer beware and Impact Guns could have done a much better job in a basic cleaning before dumping it on the consumer.

Stocks are a little beat up and there is a grip-load of cosmoline all over, but with a little TLC this is my favorite gun now. Iron sights that it comes with are surprisingly accurate, if shot in low light it throws off about a 2 foot fire muzzle blast, and the ammo, and the gun itself, are pretty cheap.

Ordered the gun on a sunday night got it on the following thursday. I got really lucky the bore i got was mirror bright with little to no pitting. The stock as expected looked horrible but a quick refinish made it all better. Great product from a great store.

I should rate this a 5, just because I've wanted one for years. They are old and worn, but very authentic. Mine has some stock reapirs and a small crack this I will need to fix. The bore is dark, but there are visible grooves and the gun shoots quite well.
I think I will buy another one from Impact!
