    I shot it yesterday and I'm quite pleased. It cycles the Sellier & Bellot 230 grain ball ammo flawlessly and makes pretty decent groups. But with the factory sight, it's damn near impossible to quickly pick up a target. So they're definitely a goner. The trigger's too short as well.

    Next stop: new sights and trigger.

    Norinco's make great starter guns for full house builds.

    Since the barrels seems decent, I was thinking about having it nitride coated in black. Blak slide and barrel, olive drab frame, making it look a bit like a Springfield Operator.

    And yes, it seems to get more and more like a full house build. Slide, frame and barrel could very well be the only remaining parts when I'm done.
