    All Norinco guns are banned from importation to the United States. Thanks Bill Clinton.

    I have two Norinco 1911's government and commander size. I paid 500$ and 450$. This is in CA so you do pay a premium somewhat. I see them sell on auctions 300-500. Both of mine were almost new in box. They are a good gun to customize on better than a RIA or a basic Springer.

    I had a chance to buy a Wilson Combat Norinco built gun but the deal couldn't be made

    Norinco is one of the few 1911's that Wilson Combat will do custom work on.

    Although I've owned several that were tack drivers after some custom fitting, I've always had a problem with the stamping on the slide. So, the last one I built, I removed it. :D

    The ATF and other law enforcement agencies caught Norinco personnel smuggling full auto AK 47's into the U.S. In addition, Chinese companies have disregarded patents of other manufacturers. They have violated other agreements as well. It wasn't just Clinton, Bush had a hand in that also. You can read more about it here:

    It wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit to completely disengage all trade agreements with them, not pay back the money we borrowed and the heck with Wal-Mart.
