Got one dirt-ass cheap the other day. Discuss
bought mine about a year ago for $150, shot about 400 rounds through it with no problems.
Thinking about picking one up and making a bootleg desert recon 870.
The norico ak, 1911, and shotguns are all pretty decent.
norinco 1911 eh?? HM!
Yeah good luck getting a norico 1911 these days. They were pretty good base guns to build up into a nice 1911.
whered you find a deal? they were a good deal but now theyre priced almost equal to an 870
i bought an 870 for 50 bucks more, that seems like a no brainer to me
i bought an 870 express super mag for 260ish
I cant really say anything about those but my SKS has jammed more than a gun should and the bolt closes on a partially ejected, unfired round Id say less than every 20 rounds. May be just my gun in particaular though...
Maybe just a stiff spring or maybe the bolt
Probably your gun, Norinco SKS's are the best ones out there next to the Russians which you can't really find anymore.
I missed out on a Russian SKS this weekend. There was a gun auction flyer circulating around all the guys at work but I couldnt make it. A lot of older civilian arms but there was a no 4 mk1 enfield, russian sks, and a couple other rifles.
I also missed out on one the day I bought my norinco because the gun store owner swore up and down it was a chinese rifle. It was in worse shape for the same price but I picked up the norinco instead. I figured if hed been in the business for 20+ years he knew what he was talking about. I guess he was mistaken. Shouldve went with my gut instinct. Was ony $180 too
I still havent shot my Norinco SKS yet. Bought it with it still covered in cosmoline.
The thing about Norinco's are they are hit or miss on the quality. They're really good or really bad. Sounds like you got one that is a miss.
