At a recent gun show I picked up a Type 53 carbine, which is a Chinese-made version of the Russian Mosin-Nagant M44 carbine. Is it still legal to import these particular rifles? Lately the only Chinese-made imports I've seen are the Remington 870/Ithaca 37/Winchester 97 shotgun knockoffs.

Unless there's a ban on all chinese firearm imports, I imagine a chinese-made mosin would probably count as 'sporting'...
