The world of Norinco products

Discussion in 'The Polling Place' started by hobocircus, Sep 8, 2006.

?

Should the ban on Norinco small arms to US buyers be lifted?

  1. Yes, they make some interesting firearms that I would like buy.

  2. No, I don't like what they sell or what they stand for.

  3. No, I do want to buy some of their guns, but I don't like what they stand for.

  4. Yes, we buy so much Chinese products as it is. Whats the big deal anyways?

    Whatever the Gov't. tells them too! DUH! ;)


    If they would let US gun makers sell to their citizens then I would welcome their products. :mrgreen:

    i answered yes because all bans are pointless but really not interested in any of their guns. they don't look very good.

    I'd love an affordable, well-made new production M1 Garand. Their 1911 is a good gun, from most of what I have read. They make a lot of nice guns. As it is, I don't have the opportunity to make a decision.

    I bought a Norinco MAK-90. It's a good AK. Of course I'd rather have a US made product, but at $377 for one with a forged receiver, I couldn't pass.

    I said yes, because I'd like to buy some of their new products and like the choice said, with the amount of PRC's **** we buy anyway, what difference does it make?

    affordable and well made are like Military Intelligence....Oxymorons..... Especially with Norinco.

    I am sure they have not had the experience SA, IHC, H&R or Winchester had making the M1. Just like the current production M1 Garands (receivers are not made by SA BTW.), I am sure they are a more brittle steel. More prone to cracking.

    But hey you buy that Chinese junk. I will stick my US made stuff.

    If you want a well made current production M1, try Fulton Armory.

    Like the XD? :confused:

    The Norinco 1911 is a great, affordable 1911. I've handled a few Norinco SKS rifles that were nice shooters as well. I'm not saying the Norinco version of the 1911 and/or the M1 Garand will be the equal of the originals, but I'm not planning on storming Normandy beach anytime soon, either. Sometimes good enough is just that. As I stated before, I don't have the option, so it's not a big deal, but I'd at least be INTERESTED in a Norinco Garand.

    From what I can tell from Fulton Armory's site, they are not new production M1 Garands, all of the listed Garands I can find on their site are rebuilt using USGI receivers and parts, not that it's a bad thing by any means, but I can't see anywhere that they're making their own newly produced receivers.

    EXACTLY! It would probably cause a price war with Wolf and we would benefit from it with lower ammo prices. YES! :eek:
