    Actually from what I understand the Norinco shotguns work just fine but some are a little rough. However, considering that a used Mossberg doesn't sell for too much and there's tons of them around, I'd rather have a classic American firearm I can get parts etc. for.

    I have handled a few 1911 from them and they looked good, but that made in China stamp really turned me off. The SA's are great, but the ones stamped made in Brazil just don't do it for me either.

    Easy now Bud, don't get yer heart racing. Knowing it and actually seeing the stamp, tag, whatever is different. I guess it get it from my Grampa, try telling a WWII vet that something thats made in Japan is as good as one made in the USA.

    Problem is most of the electronics and other goods are better made. Ohter countries work forces actually give a crap about what they are making. Damn UAW ruined US autos.
