Chinese were doing inexpensive 1911 clones before the Filipinos made it cool and the Turks jumped on the bandwagon. But, the gubment had to put a stop to all of those “unsporting” Chinese guns flooding the market.

My father-in-law also had me take this Norinco 1911A1 home for some TLC. I’m sure this pistol is well south of 500 rounds fired. I had one years ago and shot the snot out of it before trading it or selling it off to buy something else.

This was is just the way it came in the 1990s. (Except my FIL had to have some Colt wood grips instead of the original Chinese plastic ones. And I don’t really blame him. I just would have likely gotten some with no Colt medallions.)

A quality forged frame 1911

EDIT: My understanding the barrel bushing and slide stop are forged as well. Some of the strongest 1911s ever made

Looks pretty slick. Would be nice to find some OEM grips.
He has the factory Chinese grips. I don’t blame him for changing to these, as the originals were kind of slick.
