Anyone have one of these replicas of the 1897 Winchesters? They look like fun, and they are priced right. What is the word on these?
Norinco 97T

Cheers

Nobody has one?

I had one for a while, but traded it in on a pistol. It was fun to shoot - especially because it didn't have a disconnect. It just wasn't what I needed at the time.

My Norinco 97 has been one of the been one of the best guns I own. I reblued it and found it was actaully good quality steel those chinese are using. Of course, the Norinco 97 is from what I hear the only Norinco worth buying.

If you want a '97 trench gun, get the Norinco, or you can spend 4x the amount of money and try and get a real winchester. I couldn't personally drop the $900 for a real 97 trench gun, but the Norinco was only $250 on the rack, so I jumped it and I don't regret it.

Mine came with a barrel inadverdently choked modified!! 20/1000s constriction of choke.

Absolutely SMOKES 16 yrd trap targets (which are broken at an average distance of 32-33 yards beyond the muzzle)

The only minor issue with mine when I first bought it was a loose barrel shroud that had to be clamped down a bit.

There is a really nice one running on Gunbroker right now....

The auction states there is a problem with the slide action....

How complicated are these internally (Assuming they are like a standard shotgun)?????

Auction is going at 100$ right now and is in really good physical condition....

I have one, but have not had a chance to fire it yet. This weekend I'm going to try my hand at trap with it .

My only concern is how to tear it down. I have heard conflicting stories about how difficult it is to break down for cleaning and how you shouldn't bother. Anyone have any opinion on that?

97's are actually pretty easy to take apart to clean, but unless you drop it in the mud or such why bother, when you can spray them with a little CLP and brush them out,
and watch your thumb, if you choke up on the stock the bolt may bite you,,
