IAC or Nordico China, They make other copy's of great American firearms too.

I had a Norinco '97 while I shot CAS matches years ago. It was ROUGH internally, but it was reliable. That said I did only fire it with light target loads.

Other than cool factor, I'd not own one, especially as a fighting gun.

For what it's worth, the Norincos are of a higher quality than the original 1897's. Then again, china has had 100 years to manufacture a firearm to slightly better than the original. But yeah, they're common in cowboy action shooting. But if you're in the market, and you're willing to spend that much cash, try and find a decent remington or mossberg instead.
