While the Chinese may have made some Type 53 rifles available to the NVA, I doubt that they ever got them back. Same with the Balkans, where, IIRC, the only country with Chinese connections was Albania. Here, again, it would be doubtful if they were returned. I would imagine that the rifle saw plentiful exposure to the Western Chinese area, much akin to our Wild West back in it's hey-days. Bandits, local warlords, and a restive population may well have been met by it's rounds.

I have a Type 53, in similar condition. It is in a place amongst the Polish, Romanian, Hungarian, and German variants.
