I don't know if I have provided this info before, but I purchased a stripped receiver in 1999. I was told it was the last of a batch of 50 brought in by Century. Has the Chicom barrel locking hole in the receiver thread area.
Serial number is faint on the port side beneath the rear sight "92xx"
Serial number is repeated same location but lower on the receiver leg.
No other markings are present.
Clint McKee built it into a rack grade plus for me in 2000 or 2001 and identified it as a Norinco.
OODA_Loop, your information is consistent with verbal (Internet post) reports and Norinco receiver photographs on file. I've not read or heard any information to the contrary. AFAIK, the very late CAI imported Norinco receivers have serial numbers starting with "9". Some are four digits and some are five digits but they start with the number 9. This is one of a number of research topics I'm gathering information on. I don't have it nailed down yet.
I have rifle 18639, have been told it is a norinco, there are no other markings on rifle or barrel, just those numbers on the left side of reciever, has flashider and bayo lug, original owner said it came from canada, but dont personally no this.
