1. Are Norinco's sold new anywhere or must I just happen upon one?

2. Do they make one in commander size?

3. Are they heavier than the average 1911? How heavy?

4. Is there a site with specs?

#1-you just have to luckup and find one---I found a NIB just a couple of weeks ago
#2-yes they do,in fact I have one
#3-no heavier than any all-steel 1911
#4- Do a google search and some sites will come up. You can buy them in Canada.Marstar has a site listing all the Norincos

BJ Clinton banned imports of the Norinco 1911 back awhile, so no more in the good old USA. Canada, yes, here no. Happenstance and/or stalking one down. No new ones allowed.

Commander size. Yes. Canada again, not too many were in US when ban enacted. Check out link below and cry yourself to sleep.
