How close to mil spec are these? I heard the grip screws are not, but that was about it.

Norinco M1911A1

Looks like you found one without any "Made in China" markings.....very nice. Norinco's of all flavours are very plentiful up here. I'm aware of the reasons why they are seldom seen in the U.S. I have a very well used M1911A1, that is a wonderful shooter for me. I've had mine for years. It's had a few changes over the years but Norinco 1911's are very tough with excellent forged parts. There was a story years ago that the steel used by Norinco was from recycled railway rails. I can't substantiate that, but it's a great story. This is mine.....

Actually, his frame is stamped with "China". It's kind of a dark picture but you can see the stamps on the driver's side upper portion of the frame. Probably states "Made in China by Norinco".

It looks like a very nice example of a Norinco 1911. If you have been looking for a good one and found it, by all means get it, despite its origin.

GONRA got a Chrome Plated (Electroless Nickel?) one looong ago directly from the distributor.
REALLY SHINEY / PRETTY - at least compared to Collector Junque normally purchased.....

They are ALL mil-spec, excepting the grip screw BUSHINGS, which for some odd reason are of the metric pattern. Also, the barrels are chrome plated inside and out.

the Chinese M1911A1 is much better than the Philippines model of the M1911A1

better steel, GI specs, all USGI parts will fit a NORINCO

the only part that was different was the grip screw bushing, but the grip screws are the same.

I like the hard chromed barrel, forged slide & receiver, no MIM parts, all machined from bar stock the old way.
