You sure it's a Norinco? I thought it was another Chinese plant.
Iwould not say their finish is better than Saiga, actually it seemed kind of crappy. On the other hand, I have always preferred the standard shotgun shape even for detachable mags, even if planning to add P-grip and the like.
Now what would be REALLY interesting would be if anyone could come up with a shotgun upper for the AR-10. I'm sure the threat of a DD classification due to the USAS-12 scares companies from making them, but if it was just an upper it would be less risky.
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country. But he that stands it now deserves the love and thanks of men and women. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. - Thomas Paine, 1776
From this place we will deliver notice to the parlaiments of conquerors that a line has been drawn against the darkness.
And we will hold that line, no matter the cost. - John Sheridan, 2259
They Invade our space, and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds, and we fall back. The line must be drawn here, now! This time they will go no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done. - Jean Luc Picard, 2376
