    The other day I decided to get a new NORINCO 1911, so as soon as I found a nice second hand one I bought it.

    Many years ago, I owned an old one that despite it had been used and abused to my surprise it shot pretty well.
    Stupidly enough some time after I decided to sell it [​IMG] simply because at a certain point I could not stand any more to look at such an iconic pistol with the chinese NORINCO mark on it...

    Cutting a long story short, in the last few months I sold all my (not big) collection of vintage firearms and decided to keet only few guns for the range, so at a certain point I also felt the urge to buy another NORINCO 1911A1 to use as a spare gun also to test new cartridges.

    It looks in mint crisp condition, so I suppose it wasn't used at all by the previous owner.
    So far I've replaced those ugly cheap grey plastic grips with a couple of nice traditionals double diamond walnut grips: I hate its big adjustable rear sight though, in the next days I'll take a couple of pictures of it.

    I don't own the 1911 but I do have one of their 870 clones and it's a great truck gun.

    I know the feeling about owning a ChiCom shooter, and the lament years later after passing a barrel full of SKS's with that stamp. IIRC they were all still slathered up fresh out of the paper with a 125 clam price tag on them. :bang:

    I have a weird ex-girlfriend relationship with Norinco 1911. Ive owned one. Sold it. Owned another. Sold it. Bought it back. Sold it. Found another one today. Bought it. Something about it.
