There is some guy (can't remeber name) that works those over in to a real smooth shooter. The one I messed with was tuned just right and back bored. The owner uses it in competition for period piece weapons and it patterns real well. I think Norinco is blocked from further importation, correct?

Fixed, for free.



I may have to stop by my local shop tomorrow and stimulate the economy. Speaking of which, would people mind/appreciate the posting of favorite gun shops? Or would that be considered ?

Oh well, this gun was in real nice shape, and I think what I want is a slightly modified trench/riot gun, so maybe sometime down the road I'll find one that is a little worse for wear and build my own, so to speak.
that sucks.

was it like this?

More or less, I don't think the wood was quite that purdy. That yours? I like.

I'm not that keen on chinese knock-offs, on principle.


If I were to get something "newer" I'd just get a Rem 870, get a nice 22-24" barrel and a sling and it'd suit me fine, just wouldn't look quite as cool.




But for now, I'll go 1911 shopping, even though another shotgun would probably be more of use to me.

I think I'll call this pic, "The best shotgun I ever had but was epically stupid and sold it." I bought one in the early 90's, not too long after I turned 21. Mine was semi auto. I have a much more pedestrian Mossberg 500A pump at the moment. It'll do , but I do miss the S90.

I can't shoot a wheel gun for shit.



I'd also consider a few other good looking pistols - must be metal, hammer must be exposed, and able to take nice wood grips.

That's how I roll. Something shiny will catch my eye and part me from my money.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned one of these.
Opinions?
