    Yes, those dimples are what I spoke of. Until I was told, I didn't know what they represented, mine were just smash marks. Yes, single slot gas cylinder lock screw...I'd liquid strip the varnish...

    It looks right from what I can see. There are lots of small marks to be looking for, like the stamp proofs around barrel ring and bolt. They look like a splotch in many cases. Is there an...

    Unless I'm mistaken, they'd have to be made as straight pull and documented at source. I doubt Norinco would do anyone such a favor...

    We still had lots on issue when I joined, the pouches and small pack with straps for instance and I preferred the belt as it stayed together better than the '64 pattern. I had to use a set of US "H"...

    Neat little pistol, you said 9X19 in the title though, my first thought was "That'll be a handful"...but it's 9X18 so it's normal. Wouldn't mind a try...

    Yes, I have one here too...37 x 165 I make it though. Mine is actually 167mm though. I got mine a year back from another member here... Most of my marks are same as yours. Looks like yours is...

    Can't say about the licensing but the milspec varies. USGI parts seen to go straight across but you need to fit the bolts pretty carefully for accuracy. I had no problems as I used all Norinco...

    If you mean the center pic, it's two No5 and a Sten. The right pic looks like a Martini... I'll bet it's a shotgun.

    Nice 555 mirror polish job. It takes lots of time and care to get that one right without obliterating markings completely. They have been lightened though, look at the rampant colt. No, that's an...

    Sounds like someone that knew you or your son, knew where to find what they wanted and when it would be there.

    Several colors were applied meaning different things, I just wondered if this might be the remains of one of those.

    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.

    What would be more valuable than anything here is a picture of each headstamp and each side profile together. Then we can tell you what...

    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.

    Yes, VAR barrels are good if you need it.

    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...
