    I have a Norc 1911 commander It's an Ok gun, but not nearly the quality of say Kimber or the like...

    I've been trying to sell or trade it...been interested in AR-15 stuff or a S&W 686.

    A guy has offered a 586 6 shot, 6" blued model for trade...what says WMD of this offer...seems like a great wheel gun to trade for a gun I'm less than thrilled about.

    the norinco 1911 is a great gun to build up. I would keep the norinco. The kimbers are hit and miss, mostly miss

    Yes the evil red gun manufacturer...that's the other reason I want to get rid of it...

    I feel like I've committed a sin purchasing a low budget copy of a great American Design

    Lots of guys build race guns, which I never will. I don't feel like building up a nice gun off a shitty clone.

    You should have no problem selling a norinco. It is a great platform to build up a decent 1911. Granted whoever gets it will have to send it off to a smith but when they come back they are really something.

    Will, Yar let the cat out of the bag before I got to lowball you. What a fucking dick.

    So I guess I'll go ahead and say... The Norincos are not "low budget copies". You realize that Many Wilson Combats were built from the last Norinco's that made it in? I had one that was lightly customized.... it was more than legit.

    Norcs are like a 350 dollar gun...only information I got when I bought it new was that NORC managed to get an assembly line from Colt...no idea how much fact or fiction there is to this...

    They aren't expensive, they are just cheap 1911's made right, with good quality steel, which lends them to being a good base to build off of.

    I would prefer a 5" gun, but wouldn't mind having another base to play with. It's been a while since I built a single stack gun, and now I have access to machinery.

    Yeah, what was said. Norc's are excellent platform 1911's that most people do not know about. Not even just for "race guns" anyone that knows what they are doing could build an excellent shooter for cheap. I would take a properly built Norc over a bling bling Kimber 2 any day of the week.

    So what parts would you replace and why? I personally hate the machinging finish of the slide...non adjustable sights...

    Sights/beavertail/safeties/trigger would be high on my list.

    Though you could just trade it for a CZ and not have to worry about all that expensive nonsense.....;)

    I don't care much about finish and adjustable sights. To be honest, I have adjustable sights I have never moved since I first took it to the range and zero'd them, which wasn't much adjustments at all.

    I would actually "now" prefer non adjustable sights, as I've had to hone the corners off of my LPA's. If you do enough "tap racks" it'll tear into your hand eventually.

    All that I need in a gun is for it to run, sights I can see and a clean trigger. Everything else are nice to have's.

    Man I love norinco's. It might just be the chinese in me. They make great AK's too. Their 870 knock off is really good too.

    You should have phrozen trade you a CZ75sa. Think both of you would be happy. Go to the gun store and handle a CZ. I feel like a matchmaker.

    Fuuuuuuuuuck. Did not notice you were a Canuck. Need to stop drinking. Yeah... that might be a problem.

    Too bad. I have a duo-tone converted to SAO slightly worked over that has your name all over it.

    In my mind
    The only wheel gun I would own is a J frame that can handle .357

    keep the 1911
