picked up a new in box norinco rifle on sunday at a gun show
still had cosmo in the bolt, gas assembly and barrel.
there is a serial number on the bolt stop side of the receiver,
: C08312
heel stamped :
M14 SPORTER
Norinco China
CAL ST ALB VT ( the stamping is light so the last line of the markings may be not totally correct)

it is numbered under the stockline :
3 10 13 27 17

I have owned 9 norincos now and have never seen a heel stamped one my self until this one.
This the nicest, tightest, chinese m14 i have seen yet and it's machining and overall fit and finish is comparable to usgi.
headspaced at 7.62 go right outta the box .... most i've seen in the past few years average 6 to 9thou over go outta the box.
I purchased this rifle in Canada

Picked up a new in box norinco rifle from Frontiers Firearm, Aberta Canada.

The information and serial number are on the bolt stop side of the receiver:

M14 S/ 305 (the S was stamped after, it is on an angle)
CJA SFLD MITC ( the stamping is light so this line of the markings may be not totally correct)
Norinco Made In China Ser # 004106

it is numbered under the stockline :
3 12 34 4 21

and on the opposite side there is a date : 2007

This is my first and probably not the only one....

Cool Norinco

Hello Different,I'm not sure but I believe my rifle has a norinco reciever, on the heel it reads US.RIFLE 7.62 MM M14SA FED. ORD.INC SO.EL MONTE. CA C-0138 . I called Century Arms and was told Norinco 1991 1992 vintage. From what I have read there were only 400 or so put together from Fed Ord for them this way? any thoughts would be appreciated.Thanks, Flywheeler1

You have an American made receiver. It was made by Federal Ordnance, Inc. It is investment cast. The casting was made by Ecrimesa (Santander, Spain) and machined on a single CNC machining center at South El Monte, CA.

I've corresponded with Century Arms and have interviewed Bob Thomasser and Bob Brenner, VP of Manufacturing and Owner of Federal Ordnance, Inc., respectively.

There were at least 1,300 Federal Ordnance receivers made for Century Arms International. These "C" letter prefix serial number receivers were mated with Chinese M14 parts in 1990. The highest observed serial number for this series, to date, is C-1301.

New SN# for ya

I am brand new to this forum and just purchased a "rinco"
at a gun auction i happened across and the markings are as follows:

M14 .308
CJA SFLD MICH
NORINCO MADE IN CHINA 000042

Can anyone tell me when/what year it may have been imported? The gun had cosmoline on it and appeared unfired.
I cleaned it up thouroughly and oiled it correctly. Function tested it with 20 rnds. and it works flawlessly. Can't wait to put it on the bench and see what she can do. I finally got my MBR. $625 good buy?
