Norinco 1911A1

Have a chance to purchase a Norinco 1911 A1 in excellent shape for $350. Is it worth it?

They are good guns, as much as I despise that regime. I've had opportunity to handle/fire my buddy's at some length, on multiple occasions. Certainly, it has sharp edges and fairly crude assembly, but the damn thing will fire 'til the cows come home. It's like the AK of 1911s.

Posted in the wrong forum.
