    I needed something to start bowling pin shooting at Second Chance many years ago. Tight budget so I got a Norinco. Only problem I experience was in cutting a dovetail to replace the front sight. The gunsmith. complained that the slide steel was so tough it destroyed the dovetail cutter. I have many more 1911's now, but the Norinco still soldiers on. I too would love to find another at a gun show. Not pretty, but it won far more for me than it originally cost.

    Any particular years to avoid? I have read somewhere that certain year spans were lower quality.
    Like someone's grandpa used to say "I can sit here quietly and let everyone think I'm stupid, or I can say something and confirm it for them."

    I recently completed a 1911 Armorer's class where we were encouraged to bring our own 1911s to use for the many hands-on segments of the class. I brought a Springfield SS Mil Spec and one of my Norcs - both fine guns, but for a variety of reasons (LOL, many of which I don't remember since I've slept after completing the class), I felt that the Norc had many features that put it ahead of the Springfield.
