    A new NORINCO 1911A1

    The other day I decided to get a new NORINCO 1911, so as soon as I found a nice second hand one I bought it.

    Many years ago, I owned an old one that despite it had been used and abused to my surprise it shot pretty well.
    Stupidly enough some time after I decided to sell it simply because at a certain point I could not stand any more to look at such an iconic pistol with the chinese NORINCO mark on it...

    Cutting a long story short, in the last few months I sold all my (not big) collection of vintage firearms and decided to keet only few guns for the range, so at a certain point I also felt the urge to buy another NORINCO 1911A1 to use as a spare gun also to test new cartridges.

    It looks in mint crisp condition, so I suppose it wasn't used at all by the previous owner.
    So far I've replaced those ugly cheap grey plastic grips with a couple of nice traditionals double diamond walnut grips: I hate its big adjustable rear sight though, in the next days I'll take a couple of pictures of it.

    Anything with a FLGR is fluff, if JMB didn't put it on the 1911 you don't need it.
    Life is too short to shoot ugly guns.

    This is still the old picture of the gunshop, but I'll post some photos as soon as I'll take them.

    This one is still for sale, is exactly like mine apart the front strap, and it's only very few s/n away from mine.
