    I just went to my local gun store and they had a Trabzon Gun Industry Corp. 1911a1 for a decent price. It'll be my first 1911, I'm on a budget so just wondering if someone has any experience with them before. Here's a link to one on gunbroker.com http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=154961858 Thanks in advance, Anthony

    That's a Regent 1911, which is really a Norinco.

    I'd pass. For $550 you can get a much better known gun, especially slightly used.

    Off the subject, but I feel quite sorry for a man that relinquishes his all to a woman.

    Amen
     
  7. If she is going to be mad at you anyway, it might as well be for something cool like a new gun.

    I personally have a bias against anything chinese built.
    Are these the guns that norinco had made in turkey?

    Yes they are.

    Everything else aside, Norinco builds a solid 1911.

    I thought so.
    I have never heard anything but good reports about the Norinco 1911. My biggest problem is actually buying chinese goods. I try to avoid it as much as I can, but that's nearly impossible.
     
  12. No wonder why you have so many guns!!!

    It doesn't bother me to the point that I won't buy a well made 1911 or other Norinco pistols.
