    I have a Norinco here myself, they're way cheaper here...you just need to look for the forged bolt and preferably an earlier receiver. I have a 2007 and it'll repeat on the four inch gong at 200...

    Why not just pull the trigger on a good M1A? You can probably find one reasonable and with some sort of proof that it shoots. Parts are available at Brownell's.

    Red tip should be tracer. That one in a picture is a cut off tip ball round. It used to be done to make soft point but during a test with two men, two rifles and 500 rds each...they each had one...

    I think it's really a matter of opinion as to whether they're collectible or shooter's fodder but many might not go bang like they should. You find a hang fire many times in old ammo so they aren't...

    Looks like someone attacked the area with a screwdriver for a chisel to remove whatever was there...not rot.

    That screw is about twice the length...needed. They only used a short screw with no shank to speak of. Anyway, like you say a detail.

    You know well that it's just a selling point to call these things "Rare" and no matter how common. One hopes a novice will jump and pay "Buy it now" Never mind the aggravation of telling the seller...

    Nice looking old rifle, I'd make a stock marking disc rather than leave it. I know how now. Finding a cut brass screw would be the hardest part...

    We used to see lots of those when Vern Vosler was still alive and packing his Winchester collectibles around the prairie gunshows. I was posted to Wainwright through the '80's and used to go over...

    Yes, shoot it first. Don't know what gave you the idea it's shot out, whether it's gauged wide open or just a smooth bore but if it's beat then you'll need a good one eventually. You could always...

    Changing the barrel shouldn't take it's accuracy away. If all you're changing is adding a NOS barrel or good used GI then it'll shoot fine.

    Nice old rifle, I was fortunate to own a carbine some decades back in mid '80's. All I could find out at the time was because of the collector that owned it, there was some odd feature. I never...
