Ok so I have wanted one for about 15 years, but have never bought one(even though I should have many years ago when I could get them for 469 a throw at pawn shops where I was stationed in the Army). I got myself a Norinco. I want to somewhat age it and see what type I have but everything I have seen on the internet is very confusing. I would post pics but have no idea how to? I will tell you this, it has no bayonet, but it does have the nounts, I believe it is a late version with stamped trigger gaurd. Very good stock condition, cleaning kit minus the cleaing rod. Matching #'s. It has no Chinese letters on the side but does have what looks like a triangle made of at least 2 A's . If I figure out how to get pics I will, otherwise any help would be great. I do know that I payed a little more than I wanted but they seem to be getting a little scarce up here and the prices going up a bit anyhow.
