Do any of you guys have any personal experience with these? I'm thinking of trading for a used one for a project gun. I talked to a guy that used to build custom 1911's and he said that he actually prefers the Norinco frame for building custom guns because the frame is forged rather than investment cast like a lot of U.S. frames. So what do you guys think? The pawnshop that has it is asking $179.95 but has already said they would take less. I'm thinking of trading my prized laminated M-44 complete w\sling and scout scope if they will do it.
