View Full Version : NORINCO 1911A1 SLIDE FAILURES?

I had told a friend in the Phillippines that I was buying another 1911A1 Norinco and he advised against it because of the number of reported slide failures. I have shot a goodly number of rounds through my current Norinco and have had no problems.

I have talked to any number of Norinco owners since I got the e-mail and I can not find anyone that has had slide problems with their pistols. Has anybody heard or seen any such failures?

I am still getting the NIB Norinco BTW. The price is too good to pass up.

Have fired a Norinco a little (over 2000) and not even any real wear, let alone any sign of failure. No failures or malfunctions, either.

Thank you all, I am starting to think that since the US was closed to the Chinese arms market, they cheapened the entire pistol and sold the junkers elsewhere.

Mine that I had here in Aus 2 years ago worked fine with my own home grown version of the .45 Super. :D

Hmmm. I think the Charles Daly is made in the Philippines. Could it be a competitor bad-mouthing the competition?

Alexander was advised by his local gunshop to avoid the Norinco's and was told to buy the Armscor. He said there had been some failures at his club. I have posed this question on several boards and forums and have heard from only one (1) person with information on Norinco slide failures. He stated that a friend of his had an early Norinco suffer slide failure. He also said the gun owner was a shade tree gun hacker who had ruined several other firearms.
