Norinco 1911??

Post by ridealong34 on Wed Jun 19, 2013 6:26 pm

There is a Norinco Government model 1911 for sale locally on consignment.  My question is are any parts not interchangeable with other 1911s?  I have heard in the past that some of the Norinco clones such as the M1a knockoff's have some metric parts.  I like the pistol but it would be a deal breaker if say it would only use certain metric parts.

Norinco 1911's are great guns, I never heard of anyone having problems with parts interchanging. If it's a good price jump on it. A Norinco is/was the only "budget" 1911 Wilson Combat will use as a base for a custom gun.

I own a Norinco model of the 1911A1
I haven't changed any parts on it, but I think the only thing that is non standard are the grip screws.

By the way, the Norinco is my most favorite handgun.

I continue to regret not buying one of the Norincos when they were $175.
I know several people who did buy them and still have them. If the price is decent, and it hasn't been abused in the past 20+ years (Chinese fiream importation was banned back around 1990 something) I say jump on it. Or tell me where it is so I can check it out . . .Smile

If you like the price and it's in good condition I would grab it. They are better guns than most people realized at the time when they were widely available.  Good luck!

Yep - good guns.  They used excellent steel.

I bought one in 1993. Fired thousands of rounds through it with zero issues. It is beat to heck from being my truck and fishing boat pistol, she rattles like all get out, but still runs great. I really should look at getting it refinished though. I owe it to her to dress her up a little!

LGS in my area has a Chrome plated one in the case. I looked at it a couple times but I'm 1911 poor rite now.

What's sad is that Canadians can still purchase Norinco firearms. Check out www.marstar.ca. Specifically:

$325 for a M1911A1.
Wonder if we could convince the current regime to make nice with the ChiComs and allow the importation of some of their metal products again?
funny

Regarding their M14S, the consensus is they have the closest to USGI spec receiver out there.

back in the early 80's  i was working in the oil field, with tubscope and magnaflux.  special enderies inspections
we inspected the welds and threads on drill stem pipe.  
we would paint a red, white or yellow band on each pipe as it was inspected
white...good pipe
yellow...ok.  but flawed with in tollerence
red...    china co. shift#,employee# on pipe
the red pipes we called kick outs or dead chinks
