View Full Version : New Norinco Underfolder (pics)
I was visiting a local store day before yesterday, there to pick up an arf receiver that had been transferred in, and noticed a cute little underfolder sitting amongst the other long guns. I asked to see it, not thinking too much of it as underfolders donít really appeal to me. The rifle looked to be in pretty good shape, and had been refinished, but still not my type. Then I saw the price tag. $599.00 I had to check two or three times to see if there was really a 1 in front of the 5, but there wasnít. Six hundred bucks. Wouldnít ya know it, I do like underfolders. I didnít let the rifle back out of my hand and the store owner just added it to my 4473.

Wow, what a find! I cannot find those but do seem to run into a lot of $200 Yugo SKSs and $400 Romy Sar1s.
If your really not a fan of the underfolders you could probably sell it for a nice little profit. They seem to be dropping a little with the AWB approaching but I still think you could get a $1000 without too much problems. Whatever you do, it really is a nice looking rifle.
BTW, did the chinese use bakelite pistol grips? Most I have seen used hardwood pistol grips that matched the handguards.

Yeah, I don't like the look of the Bakelite grip either. All I've ever seen had the thick wooden grip with checkering. But the other stamps look OK, and that's certainly the right rear trunion. Maybe someone thought the Bakelite looked better?

Nice find. Looks to be an early Sile Norinco. A Chinese wooden pistol grip would be better suited. I hapeen tto have a Sile Polytech pre ban double unde. It doesn't look refinished from the picture but you are closer than I am. :small_gri
