Could not resist. The fit and finish aren't bad. Mostly a Replica of a solid frame 1897 Winchester pump. Some modern screws showing. Plus the "Made in China" on bottom of receiver and Norinco97 on barrel is hard to hide. But the serial # is 101. I wonder who got #1-100. Anyway, taking to the range tomorrow to break in. Actually, doesn't look too bad. Anyone else get one or have any experience with one?

Saw one at a shop yesterday... still full of packing grease and rough as hell (reminiscent of some of the Chinese AKs I've seen), but probably something that could be worked into useable.

$375 ain't bad, but I'm not yet convinced I need to trade in my coach gun.

Yeah, real mess getting all that packing grease out and stripping to clean. I figure a couple of hundred rounds will tell me if I still have to do some kinda action job.
