    What kind of info can you guys tell me about a Norinco TT Olympia 22lr? Are they well made? Picky about ammo? Accurate? how easy are mags to find?

    Like the Norinco Colt 1911A1 and Browning .22 rifles, it's basically a clone of the Walther original, and parts and magazines should be interchangeable with the original Walther. Nicely made, from what I could tell by fondling one at a gun show, but I haven't had the chance to shoot one, so far.

    Occasionally I will come across them at gunshows. They seem like decent pistols and appear to be fairly well made but it's been a long time since they were imported here. I also couldn't find any spare parts or mags for it, though possibly a Star Model FM, FR, or FRS mag might work as these were also styled after the Walther Olympia design.

    Other than the mag (with will interchange...)
    they are the same, the Norinco mag holds one less.

    as for how the work, Mine has been flawless so far.
    been a while since they have been made, might be able to find parts from
    marstar.ca, in canada, they import Norinco stuff

    here is what I found, the Norinco has a last round hold open and
    Haven't tried, so I don't know how accurate that is, but it's worth a try.

    If the mags are interchangeable then maybe try larrysguns.com, the place to go for all things Hammerli. I checked Marstar and all they currently have is a Norinco mag that's for a copy of the Colt Huntsman. Might try contacting them to see about future availability.

    I've only fired a few rounds through mine but it's been very nice so far. It really points well with the barrel weight installed.

    I have read that some folks have lost the rear sight adjuster screw which is impossible to replace. I followed the advice to glue mine down with a drop of clear nail polish.
