Norinco copy of Win '97. O.K. or not? What's good price?

Don't know about the 97 but the materials, fit and finish on the 870 copy was better than on the Remington original. The bolt cycling was a little rougher but sights were better, metal trigger guard had no sharp edges and it had no built-in lock.

Unfortunately, the shape did not work right for me, else I would have been tempted to pick it up...but the gun tended to roll in my hands during mounting.

If the 97 is as well-made, then it wouldbe a keeper.

Folks, I fully understand and back the anti-Chicom thoughts.

Popeye can search the archives if he needs the info.

If you would like to offer your advice on a firearm, he and I welcome it.
