Hello folks,

Here's the story.

About 20 years ago I had a Norinco model of the 1911A1 .45 ACP which was stolen from a car break-in.

I replaced it and about 2 years later was notified by the police department that it had been recovered.

Upon receiving it, I had it blued by a fine crafstman to rival the blueing on a Colt. It's original parkerizing was badly, badly rusted, believe it or not.

Now I have 2 Norinco 1911A1s.

Since Norincos are extremely hard to find in the US and since it has a gorgeous blueing job on it and I have another which I use and this one is a safe queen, I have been thinking of selling it on consignment.

It's condition is immaculate and the blueing makes it even moreso.

What do you think I could get for it on consignment?

Dang dude, you waited too long. :(

A few years back these Norinco 1911's were considered prime base guns for customization.

Now the market is eat up with 1911's.

$400 in LNIB condition.

Good day. I've had one of these Norinco 1911s for maybe 20 years. It was as much of a 1911 that I could afford, and I was told it was virtually interchangeable arts with Colt's 1911.

I have fired it at the range and picked up a Jonathan Ciener .22 adapter for it which works well. Does anyone here have a good idea what the value of these items would be together and separately? They're both in 98% condition.

Many thanks and merry Christmas,
Terry

Excellent guns, but not a lot of collector interest, so the reblue will not mean much one way or the other. I would WAG at $450-500.
