    I just love the overtime money :whistling:
    Ok, this time it's a Norinco's version of the famous German military training rifle of the 1930's.
    KKW Trainer.
    It's called JW 25A and the rifle's action is in fact a copy of the CZ 452.
    38" overall and 7,5 pounds of forged and milled steel receiver, adjustable rear sights, solid steel components, and adult-sized 'vintage military Mauser' styled stock.
    I don't have enough time to unpack and clean it now (heading to work soon), but I can tell You that after the initial look I'm impressed with the overall quality.
    Price: $189
    More pictures to follow...

    Gotta love sproting rifles. :whistling: I hope their machining is better than their spelling. Maybe Chinese rifles are like Chinese restaurants (the best ones always have spelling mistakes on the menu).

    Just what, exactly, are "group active objects"? And who amongst us doesn't "enjoy a better annihilating firepower"?

    Not yet, as the overtime hours keep me away from heading to the range (providing me in the same time with the extra cash for new stuff).
    However I'm going to give it a try soon :)

    Hi again,
    well I took the carbine off from the package.
    It's still covered in oil, but no more after the coming weekend.
    I guess that I just love the smell of the oil...
    Before I will say more I really would like to give it a try at the range, but making a long story short...I'm going to think twice in the future, before I will ever open my mouth, saying something about the cheap, Chinese crap.
    The steel sure looks sweet, action need some time to smooth out, but this firearm has the feel of the real, vintage thing.
    My wife has a nice little carbine to start her shooting adventure with...

    It's Norinco, so I'm not sure, as most of their products are banned in the USA...

    After the above experience I'm looking for the Chinese copy of M14.
    Around $500 locally.
