It is a

Norinco logoed with a 66 in a triangle with 84S stamped on it along with 4757. It also has CSI DAL TX on it. It's chambered in 5.56x45.

i know what I paid for it but what is it worth and any other info that might be known about it would be great.

Thanks

The Norinco 5.56mm mags are different than the Polytech ones.




Can you explain this? I have some mags that came with the rifle (along with bayo, cleaning kit, sling, box, ect.) and also some "other mags I bought from a company advertising in Shotgun News and I've never had a problem with them.

Great! Now you tell me?!?! Where were you when I got my .223 Norinco? I guess now I will have to send it to Ted Marshall for conversion into a Krink or something like that

The PolyTech .223's had bolt issues, too. I bought PolyTech Legend National Match serial number 4 from a guy in Alabama who had bought Keng's stock of remaining rifles out in the 90's. He had several .223's that were returned to Kengs that had bolt issues. He rebarreled and rebolted them to 7.62 x 39. I had a .223 RPK PolyTech (VERY RARE) that I picked up at East Park Sporting Hardware in Memphis when they were around - PolyTech mags were the only thing that would work in it (Valmets would fit, but not function properly, at least in mine).
