I have 3 Norks, one I added a drop in beaver tail grip safety and smoothed out the edges of the frame where the safety fits.

If it ain't metal, single stack, and single action, it ain't a 1911 no matter what it looks like!!

I've done nothing to mine

and have had no problem sof any sort. I like it just like it is.


Follow this link to see where you could take it.

I do not think anything on the gun 'needs' to be changed. That is as long as it works. shoot it and find out, then decide what you want to do.

If it ain't broke, don't fixit! IMO people add bells and whistles to 1911a1's that are not needed. Wring the gun out and change what you think needs to be changed.

I bought a used one that had been shot verry little and found it was just fine as is.

I would do something with the sights. Nothing special, Set of Novaks helps other than that I think the guns are good to go! ...maybe a trigger job to crisp it up a bit.

Other than the sights, I'd leave it alone if it shoots well.

Here's what I did to mine:

The lightly-modified Norinco continues to serve well today:

Best and good luck.
