Hello everyone!

Well, the Big Brown Truck of Love just dropped-off my J&G Type 53.

I ordred it w/hand-select on March 09. What took so long? Well, I was wondering, too. During the order process I half-jokingly wrote in the "Order Comments" box:

Hi guys!

On the Chinese Type 53, looking for no cracks, no rust, and Chinese markings...if possible!

Thanks for what you can find! J&G is the best!

About Wednesday the 14th, I realize that I haven't heard anything from them (unusual) so I e-mail:

Hello!

Do you know when my order# XXXXXX might ship? No rush, just looking for a time frame.

Thank you!

And this is what they wrote back...

Sir,

We are selecting one that comes as close as we can to what you have requested. As soon as we find a nice one we will get it shipped out for you. Thanks.

How cool is that? And, sure enough, I got one with no cracks, no rust, and Chinese markings. Added bonus, the bore looks great! It shines with strong rifling. These pics are straight out of the box.

And, yes, LOTS of rice planted with that stock!

Yep, looks like a typical stock from the PRC. Wonder if the average height of 5' 3" for a rural conscript in the 50's had anything to do with how beat up these stocks are.

Yay for the brown truck. I just got my type 53 from J&G today also! I was in the midst of taking pics when the camera crapped out.

Prior to this recent boatload of T53's that recently arrived, a very nice one could be had on GB for under 150

That is awesome that they took the time to fill a personal request like that. Sometimes those are worth the wait. Enjoy!

Yeah, J&G went above and beyond for the $10 IMHO. Holding an order like that in a busy mail-order business is a hassle for them. I'm a happy customer for sure! :)
