The 453 is the same gun as the EAA MP153, Remington starting importing the Brakial (Russia) brand under their banner last year.
I had one back before Remington began importing them under their name. I had it a couple of years. You have to adjust it to fire light loads and it took mine a couple of boxes to break in. I had a few jams but overall it worked good. The action to me is a little rough feeling, but for the money its not that bad, I paid 275.00 for mine, I believe they have went up in price since Remington started importing them.
If you don't shoot a lot , but want an auto without spending a big chunck of $$ you would probally do okay with it.
