I got this beauty on a trade about 4 months ago. Didn't know it at the time but after researching it because it has no manufacturer markings it is a very early import Norinco gun imported by GLNIC before they started marking them with the manufacturer. Gun was NIB unfired.

Here is the only real info I could find on it......

They were reportedly an import company owned exclusively by the PLA. Guangdon Lingnan Ind. Corp GLNIC LA CA is "GLNIC Corporation of America", a company based in California, but owned by the People's Liberation Army of China. GLNIC may stand for "Guangdon Lingnan Ind. Corp." or "Guangdon Lingnan Import Company". The letters "CGA" may be stamped on the trunnion ahead of the serial number on early-import GLNIC AK47S rifles, and it appears that CGA was the exporter for pre-1989 GLNIC-imported AK47S and SKS rifles (later rifles were exported by Norinco).
