I just got this in from a guy in Ohio for a good price. Overall, about 90%, maybe a little better. The bluing on the sides of the slide were a little faded. I took out my bluing pen for a little bit of tough-up and it definitely looks better than before. The rest of the bluing is in phenomenal condition. It has rubber checkered grips (which will get replaced).
I was hesitant to buy a second Norinco, but I figured "what the heck". It is an earlier model (403,XXX) than my first one (509,XXX). I thought I might use it for a custom build, but now that I see it is in pretty nice condition, I have decided to keep it in stock form. A set of checkered walnut grips are in order.
