This is the ugly duckling that can lay golden eggs. The only thing Norinco is the frame, slide, and barrel. Most all of the internals are Wilson and Wolf. She shoots better than I can. Two club member gunsmiths traded this gun back and forth for several years, and with every trade they added, fine tuned, and refined the Norinco until it was pretty much perfect. Then, they got high end Kimber fever, and that's how I ended up with the Norinco. This Norinco will feed everything you give it, and it never fails to eject an empty.
She ain't pretty, but she sure can dance. :supergrin: I think the previous owners are regreting their decision to sell it. Oh well.....................
Here she is.

Norincos are built from some of the hardest steel around.

There are smiths that either charge more to work on a Nork or simply refuse. It's the quality of the steel that sets it apart, which isnt what most would expect from a Chinese piece. Nevertheless, it's a fact. Good luck if you think you'll ever wear it out,lol.
