FWIW - I have a Norinco that I bought new back in 1993. I have a Colt Ace 22LR conversion kit that works just fine on the Norinco. At one time, I had converted it over to 9mm, using a Colt slide and parts. Not being that satisfied with the 9mm, it went thru another conversion to 38 Super, again using Colt Parts. Have now come full circle back to it's 45 ACP form, where it serves as a pretty good truck gun. Over the years, I haven't found any Colt or aftermarket parts for the 1911 that didn't interchange with the Norinco. You may have to do some minor fitting, which is to be expected with any 1911. If you want a 1911 that you can tinker with, the Norinco is a good choice, As a side note, I have read of people having issues with the Norinco 1911 magazines. I have several of them and have used then in my Colts & Kimbers without problems. So I would say that the Chinese did a pretty good copy on the 1911.
