    Don't they come with a box and manual or an extra mag??? Friend of mine bought one brand new at the gun show here and the dealer just wrapped it up in a bag and gave it to him. I had time to check it out on the way home and it's a sweet gun seems built very good and the price was right to.

    They do come in a box, or rather a cardboard sleeve with foam insert. If your buddy got one "new" without, it prob wasn't really new; but who cares? He got an excellent shooting 1911, prob more accurate than those at twice the price. If he's not happy with it, email me, I'll take it off his hands. :evil:

    Anything less than $400 is a good deal on a new Norinco, box or no.

    I'm jealous our Canadian neighbors can still get these as well as $400cdn M1a clones! Rock Island 45's seem to be our new equivalant though.

    Be very careful what you wish for, my friend.

    Saw them for sale at local gun show at three different tables for $300 +/-.

    If they are what everyone say they are, this would make a great "extra".

    I would buy every new one I could get at $300. They are going for over $400 now; up to $450 NIB. I have two as shooters and two NIB.

    I bought one new in 1989 or 1990. The Norinco's then came in a box with 2 mags(junky), and a cleaning brush. I'm sure it had a manual of some sort, but can't remember that.

    Norinco reliability

    I have a Norinco, that I converted to .9mm by changing the slide, barrel, & ejector, from an old Springfield that I purchased at a local show for $115.00. It came as a package deal with two mags. I have to tell ya, it's the most accurate, & reliable .9mm that I own. I have shot it with the .45 set up, and it is equally accurate, and reliable. Never had the slightest hiccup with either caliber. Overall, I would say, if you can purchase one at a fair price, grab it, & run. ;)
