    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.

    (and those are Canadian dollars)

    Mil-spec, WWII vintage at 39 oz.

    Site w/ specs. Anyone who mfgs them, Check Colt's website
