Question Norinco USA

Looks like someone may be making M14S's and AK's in the USA using the Norinco name and logo. Wonder if most of the parts are Chicomin origin?

www.norinco-usa.com

Not any real detail on the site but might be useful to track any updates.

Web site sez "Comming in 2009!!!!" Looks like they are just building the website... Didn't they just pass a law banning the importation of all foreign parts and parts kits? Something to that effect and I guess that would apply. The M14 Nah but, im sure the AK's would be a hit.

Yeah but how has that affected Century with their AKMs or CZ-USA with their VZ-58's?

I thought the ban on parts was on the demilled kits many of which had FA parts. Or, whatever BS excuse they gave.

We'll just have to wait and see as I agree this does sound odd. Wonder if someone is just using the name?

Im not sure how all of that is working now without looking it up. They might have added frames, barrels and other parts from importation. Springfield has kept its prices down on the M1A's becuase it used USGI parts. I know my M1A has a 1962 H&R Barrel im guessing was new old stock. Im sure the importors whare houses cramed full of ****. This would effect outfits like K-Var and many others dealing with Mil-surp small arms parts & kits. You remember how cheap the AK parts kits used to be and even came with the trunions.. I mean the good kits . NOT those Romainian $99 junk sets . Guns-N-Stuff - The HK33,HK91,CETME, FAL,L1A1, SGT all those kits you can't find anymore and not for cheap. Guns-N-Stuff used to have the $29 Stens with cut receiver tubes.

For years the VZ58 kits were useless. No one could do anything with those kits because you couldn't get a reciever . I think Ohio ord. was the only game in town.

The only thing I know of with the AK kits is that the ATF said the barrels must be cut like the receivers. It doesn't ban kit imports so much as basically demand that darn near everything be destroyed.

Century has no problem with it because the AKs it gets are WASRs that come in as single stacks under "sporting rifle" rules.

With all of the money Century has been making "assembling" rifles in this country I am surprised that someone has not noticed before that it is a booming business. There was a company that lost a mint right as the first assault weapons ban took affect but maybe they are hoping that we will not have another.

well if all import parts were band then rock island, and a few others couldn't get 1911's into the country. century now is using American made barrels on most of the ak's and others they put together, or should i say slap together. as for prices i've seen new 1909 Argentine mausers selling for 29.95, fn's selling for 129.00, broomhandle mausers selling for 169.00, lugers selling for 135.00, 1922 browning for 69.00, remington 700 safari rifles for 220.00, you could get a Mauser mk-x for 109.00 in any caliber you wanted at the time, 222 Remington to 458 winchester mag. so, so much for the old days, i remember my father buying a p-08 luger from a man for 25.00, but all i do is remember. i think i would give 25.00 for a luger myself for that matter.
