Norinco Ban?

Post by Captain_Obvious » Mon Oct 05, 2009 7:18 pm

Can someone explain the Norinco ban to me. I thought it was just for 2 years, so why can't we get cheap M14's yet?

"non sporting" norinco items have been banned for many many years, and will continue to be. thanks clinton.

norinco shotguns and sporting arms will return soon i believe

Yes the Winchester Model 97 I think, but forget that they make a Winchester 1887 replica! I want to roll like a T-800!

An SKS without a flash hider or bayo wouldn't have any non sporting features would it? You think there is any chance we may start seeing new current production SKS's at decent prices?

"Sporting" model Norincos have been available in the US lately. The 982 shotgun is made by Norinco.

Sadly we'll probably never see the M14 here in the lower 48 :(

there was a 2 year ban on norinco products lately? I guess that explains why I have not seen any of the trench guns or lever guns around.

I really want a pistol grip Winchester 1887 replica. Make it an AOW and then cut the barrel down to 12 inches. Bad. Ass.
Thanks Anianna!

Is it possible to buy a gun in Canada and move to the US? Or is it complicated? Or a US citizen buying a gun in Canada and bringing it back legal? I'm guessing no or more would have done it.

It is possible to import certain guns into the U.S. from Canada. But, generally with the extra expense involved it's not worth the hassle. You have to pay import fees, fill out paperwork with the ATF, etc. Generally it's only worth doing if you find some collector firearm in Canada that you haven't been able to track down in the U.S. This is especially true now with the stronger Canadian dollar.

And, you can ONLY import firearms into the U.S. that are already importable into the U.S. That means if you can't buy it here already, you can't import it from Canada either. So, you can't buy a Norinco M-14 in Canada and legally import it into the U.S. Sorry. (In other words you can't get around the import ban buy buying one that was legally imported into Canada and then bringing it into the U.S. yourself. If it's banned, it's banned)

You're not missing much. The cheap M14s used to be imported into the U.S. Unless they've greatly improved, the general consensus at the time was that they weren't worth bothering with compared to a SA product.

Consensus over here is that they have been getting better and better with this last batch being of equal quality to the Springfields.

The ban is a executive order in dire need of repeal.

IIRC, Norinco (China North Industries Co)got caught sending factory reps and trying to sell serious military grade hardware to what it believed to be street gangs.

Turns out those street gangs were actually ATF agents. Doh!

Hence the ban on chinese ammo and arms.

That is an accurate simulation of expecting repeal of executive order by presidents, regardless of political party affiliation. Some president decides to sign an executive order, and it may as well be written in stone...

regardless of the fact the newer norinoco m14's seem to be getting better and better and still are half what a springfield costs..

Have you ever owned one? Ya, I'm biased, but I think my Polytech is better than an "equal" SA. Any shortcomings can be easily fixed with a lower total cost.
