Don't own a 1911and hadn't really intended of getting one soon, but......... the local pawn shop has a Norinco for $399. It's a bit scratched up but seemed fairly tight and smooth. What's the opinion?? I know the steel is as hard as a hard thing and I've seen some here say that they're a good solid pistol that can be used as the basis for a build. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
