    I've owned both and all I can say is it would come down more to the individual rifle itself.

    The Nornco's being a commercial rifle never got issued and therefore abused by disgruntled conscripts.

    The Yugo's tend to be more concistant from rifle to rifle. Norinco's can vary greatly from one rifle to the next depending on what factory made them.

    For me if it's Pinned Norinco vs Yugo the euro rifle wins.

    But if it's a nice threaded Norinco vs Yugo I'll buy Chinese

    The paratrooper* IS a Chinese made Norinco SKS period. Just like a Silverado IS a Chevy

    There are Norinco's that aren't paratroopers* but there are no paratroopers* that aren't Norinco's
