    Couldn't Resist this deal!

    Got this Last Saturday while at the Store. I should say, I've had it on paid hold for about 2 months, and had to pick it up. A NORINCO 1911A1 S/N 401XXX, which places it at around 1982-1983 date. The gun is CLEAN, Barrel numbers match, and the Barrel lugs/ slide cuts are VERY sharp. Idon't think it's been carried at all. Blue slide W parked sides. Frame and controls all match in color. Factory plastic grips that are original. I also got 2 Extra mags and a Galco holster for the gun Price 395.00 minus my discount 355.50 delivered Did the nICS, and picked it up at the NH transfer station (3 miles down the road from the Store, 2 hrs later. I've got a few of the Norincos and every one of em has been a great gun, just like this one. I think I did well.

    Good score. It is a well made 1911A1 clone, very reliable.

    back when I shot IDPA matches quite a few guys bought your exact gun as a base model and tricked them out for competition. The Norinco is a solid
    gun. Congrats.

    Thanks OD.. I know it's not a US Made gun, but I know these were a heck of a base gun if you wanted to build on them. Just gonna keep it stock, and add it to the others.. IT'S an ADDICTION!

    A Norinco under 4 bills? Not bad.


    Isn't the steel and forging used in the Norincos one of the strong points about them?
