Thumbs up New to me M53

Picked this up from out of state after 10 day wait here in CA. As you know this state is crazy,luckily C&R handguns are not on a roster where they have to pass a “safety drop test”. New production handguns that are NOT approved cannot be brought in from out of state (except LE). This is a last year 1974 production gun and it not a star as far as finish but still a niceoriginalpackage. Will be complete once I get a TT installed.

Very nice. I just picked this 53-2 up complete with box and inserts, 250 rounds factory ammo, 50 rounds of reloads, and 150 pieces of empty brass. I was also lucky enough to pick up 4 more boxes of factory ammo and a set of dies.

Congratulations. It’s a blast to shoot

Here’s the 4” I picked up a couple of month ago

And I found some ammo for it
