Its not much but she's mine

Picked this girl up new a couple months ago. Been 'customizing' as I go.

Base rifle is a stock 2014 Norinco. Had a standard plastic stock initially.
Now she sports a USGI flash hide, USGI wood stock (birch i think), and a Burris 3 x 9 - 40mm scope. Also sporting a fiberglass hand guard.
Like I said, shes not much but she's mine!



The pix was just after staining.
Just in the process of tung oiling the stock after stripping it of the old grease, oils,etc.

Thanks from tnw50cal, geeck, nf1e and 9 others

Hey, you have a fine looking rifle and should be proud of it I would say, good for you.

Very nice.
I sure wish we could still get the Chinese rifles and their ammo too.

A fine-looking piece, indeed! I would strongly recommend one of Hawk's dummy selector kits, but it looks like the op rod isn't cut for the hook on the forward end of the connector arm. Is that the case?

Thanks guys....
I'll post some pix after I get my final coat of tung oil this weekend.
Yes you are correct on no cutout, I'd like to use a 3D printer and just print out the selector switch section, that way I dont create too many waves here in the great white north ;)

Absolutely nothing wrong with your rifle at all, Sir .
I'd be proud to own her.
We have a whole crew of Canadian Norinco owners , and plenty of info on the Norinco rifles.
The important thing is, How's she shoot?

Honestly... havent fired a shot through her yet. Been spending so much time cleaning, stripping and upgrading. Hoping to get out to the range sometime this month.

Cheers!

Well get out there and shoot that bad boy & post an after action report !
Bag her & bench her , take your time & sight her in properly and then shoot a few 5 or 10 rd groups for us .

Hey Canadian, This bunch likes all kinds of 14 type rifles. You don't have to have an LRB mounted in an EBR with high dollar glass. If it gets like that I'm gonna leave the country. No wait that's if Hillary wins. Range report with pics due.

I'd certainly take her out for a spin, and have my way with her...
