    My home is in Las Vegas and I live every other year in China where I have access to an unlimited supply of Norinco 400KNs which I can legally import into the U.S. Should I import the Norincos into the U.S?

    Can't find info on that model...
    Got any pics or tech info?
    From what I read here,Norincos are highly regarded.

    That was supposed to be my line :supergrin:

    Norinco's were banned via the Federal Gov't during the Clinton administration. Be careful, if it could have been done, I feel it would already have been done.

    Would love to see the 1911's, Sig and CZ copies imported.

    Yeah, you can never have too many manhole covers.

    That's what I found too... Airport mechanical manhole covers... but this is in 1911 forums.

    I suspect there is a disconnect somewhere.

    Yes, you are right. The Norinco 400KN is a manhole cover. When I was walking down the street the other day I noticed all the manhole covers had Norinco labels on them. I have seen them install these manhole covers, these are well made manhole covers.

    To be honest, it does look like they make a great manhole cover.

    So, do you keep your manhole cover in condition 1 or 3?

    If their man hole covers are made of the same type steel their 1911's are, I doubt they'll ever need replacing.

    Go ahead.............if you like living at Leavenworth. :wavey:

    Norincos cannot be imported into the U.S. Period. Research the law.

    For those in Canada:

    Did you even read the thread before replying or did you just prematurely ejaculate all of your valuable knowledge?
