    mga Sir, are Norinco .45s better compared to our homegrown Armscors. i own an armscor practical full size and it is very accurate and reliable. i am planning to acquire a world war 2 style 45 and i have been reading good reviews of Norincos. I don't want to be a laughing stock in our range. should i go ahead and buy a Nork? Kailangan pa bang gastusan at kalikutin ang Norinco bago maging pang rock and roll ang mga ito? ;g

    Hi Blueeagle,

    Hindi naman better ang Norinco compared sa Armscor natin, may strong point lang siya, that is the quality of steel.
    If you'll get the Enhanced model no need to kalikot further, gamitin mo ng gamitin till magamay mo. If you're not satisfied with such things as trigger pull, sight, grips, etc. then nothing wrong kung magpalit ka ng parts or pa-gunsmith. As it is reliable na ang Norinco. I don't think na you'll be a laughing stock sa range kung naka Norinco ka, marami riyan may customized Norinco and doing good. Kung milspec hanap mo lalong ok Norinco, palit ka lang siguro ng grips and pangharabas na. ;)

    You won't go wrong with it. The barrel is chrome lined and in my experience, better than average accuracy.

    During the early to mid-90's it sold for P10,000 complete with PTC.:)

    If my plan to go back home(Pinas;) ) will push through NORINCO will on the top of my WISH LIST . I've been a garagesmith here in the USA for several years now and I can bouch for the hardness of NORINCO steel. I usually use HSS endmill to cut the BO-MAR sight on most 1911 to save money. But on Milspec(WWI & WW II) and Norinco slide I've been using Carbide cutter. I have a mini-milling machine and I cant afford to burn its motor for the second time.;g

    Send a PM to Deenoh. He sells Norincos.

    On the other hand, I wonder why Colt's metallurgy isn't consistent. My gunsmith told me that after WWII, Colt commercial 1911s have varied hardness of the metals being used. He also said that the National Match (prior to the Gold Cup National Match), as well as Gold Cup National Match series '70 had good materials. I have a friend who has two National Match 1911s in .38 Super and .45 ACP. I jokingly told him if he would sell any of those, and he said no.:)

    sell your armscor SS, get the norinco SS, then customize it to your specs.

    Try mo dre sa Trust Trade, Makati Cinema Square. Look for Bernard, he'll let you hold and inspect their Norincos and other Taurus products.

    pls.enlighten me, mga sir. somebody is offering me a Nork 30 (10 rounder) for 30 grand after having it tuned by a 'smith. he is throwing in a complete rig with 4 mags to sweeten the deal. is this price fair? maybe he is trying to unload it bec he neither has a single stack or a true hi-cap(nork 44 is a 14 rounder). he says he wants to buy a cal 40. :upeyes:

    i hope not all the 4 mags are 10 rounders.
    NP30 "i think" is a clone of ParaOrd P14(without the front slide serration)if i am not mistaken.
    and it should also take a high-cap cal.45 mags(13+1)

    30k sounds reasonable enough(with the extras included), but i think it's really better to pm deenoh with regards to Norinco Pistols.

    editted to add....
    btw here's the new website of norinco
    www.norincoequipment.cn/product_hot.jsp

    Thanks for providing us the new website of Norinco. I've been trying to access www.norincosports.cn for a while, but to no avail.

    Considering that base Norinco 1911s are not that expensive, I think it would be better for Blue Eagle to purchase one and customize it according to his needs. He could choose the sights, grip safety, finish, etc. that he likes.

    don't mention it isuzu. :)
    if we could only have "a glance" of that norinco blueeagle wants to buy for 30k, we might be able to give him some good suggestions.

    mil specs. norks are just half of the price being mentioned(more or less), but having it hone & customize might end-up more costly.
    a 30k NP30, already being tuned by a "reputable gunsmith" with complete rig-set & 4 mags is reasonable enough.

    but for me, for a budgeted game gun i'll go with NP40 or NZ75/85B Norks, Armscor's cal.40 or P9, S.A.M's Alpha cal.40 or Falcon cal.45 1911's.
    but it's just me.(kuripot kasi ako e. ;) )

    mikol and isuzu, thanks mga sir! I'll borrow the piece and put it through its paces. if it performs well, I will consider buying it. but if it performs less than expected, i will just buy the nork milspec and slowly upgrade it. salamat sa mga payo because ,sometimes, i can't think straight anymore after being bitten by this bug called "practical shooting".Biro lang mga sir!:)

    :supergrin: hinay-hinay lang muna sa pag-gastos para sa luho dahil mas marami pang dapat e priorities na mga gastusin.

    ok din naman ang Product ng SAM once you'll be able to handle & thinker it alot. yup small parts inside really needs to be upgraded to those more known & trusted brand, but it really works fine out of the box din naman.

    i might be spending some dough for the future upgrades of my SAM Commodore, but atleast i'll enjoy doing it besides learning how to work with 1911 platform boomers in a not so expensive way.:supergrin: ;)
