213's take the 9mm Luger, offroader. That's one reason I bought mine; the stuff is the most available ammo in the world or close to it, it seems.what ammo do you shoot through the norinco 213? 9mm luger or the 9mm markov 9x18mm, 9mm steyr?
Troy2000 has it right.I am trying to fix constant jamming after 1 or 2 rounds.Don't know anything about this piece.It is my #1 son's. How can I tell "narrow" mag from wide?I suspect the mag is the culprit..cartridge jams at a 45dg angle.
There is another possibility, but I doubt it's a double-stack magazine; IIRC the high-cap mags won't fit into standard 8rd 213 mag wells.... and the 12rd Norinco 213s are fairly rare from what I've learned.troy2000 said:By the way, they come in two configurations. All Tokarevs are manufactured with a 9x25 magazine well. For the 9mm version they use a different barrel; plus some have a spacer in the well and narrower magazines, and others use a full-size magazine with a spacer inside each magazine. Be sure which setup you have, before ordering spare magazines.
I've looked very closely at my 7.62x25 Radom Wz48 and 9mm Norinco 213, and as far as I can tell, they have the exact same sear/trigger assembly. The only differences are the magazine-well spacer and slide.troy2000 said:Supposedly converting from 9x25 to 9mm Luger is easy. I haven't done it myself, but some people online say they just change out the barrel and use the full-sized mags anyway. Going the other way isn't quite as easy, I've read. One or two places online have said the sear/trigger assembly is modified in the 213's for the 9mm, and you should change it out too if converting from 9mm to 7.62x25.
I recently ordered this from Mark at Canadaammo.. its been almost 3 months since I have ordered it. Out of curiosity how long did yours take to get?I have a brand new Norinco M213 on order from CanadaAmmo.com. Cost: only $99 (with tax and S&H, $133.) This will be the first handgun I've ever owned; I carry the old Smith and Wesson Model 10 at work. We will be transitioning to the S&W M&P .40 cal within the year, so I figured that owning my own semi auto pistol will get me more familiar with the different action. Plus, I can't say no to that price for a brand new pistol!!!!!!!
Back when I had my FFL I bought one for my own use.Found a deal i think on a norinco model 213 9mm. the guy wants 90 for it. does anybody know anything about these guns?
