do we still have questions that don't deserve their own thread threads?
does anyone own/is knowledgable about the norinco m14? I'm looking into the shorty because it's cheaper to fire than my m1 carbine.
I love mine, OP. Norinco is typically a pretty good company when it comes to rifles. They're pretty well made. The only issue I've ever had with mine was third party magazines needing the feed lips tweaked. My front sight post is noticeably off center but shoots fine.
Here's a video from one of the more recent times I went shooting. Favourite part about the rifle is that subtle ping after every shot. You'll notice I was still working on tweaking the magazines so it liked ejecting the fifth.

fuck yeah it is. where have you been? you also cant find it anywhere outside of the internet. even the fudd stores dont carry it, and if they do, they want $1 a round because its an "antique round"
If you live in Canada it's pretty much a no-brainer, even though they're now more expensive at $600. From what I read on canadiangunnutz you're not going to notice an accuracy difference between 18.5" and 22' barrel.
Just remember that they're really picky with ammo if you care about accuracy. Federal eagle gives me 5MOA while the 168gr BTHP Sierra match gives me about 1MOA. Also if you expect to shoot it regularly the cost of .308 will add up so either buy norinco 7.62x51 ammo in bulk or get into reloading.
Norincos have their own little quirks to look out for, but once you tinker with it a bit it can shoot as well as rifles three times its price.
Check out the Canadian Gun Nutz battle rifle forum for a ton of stickies about the M305 that will tell you everything you'd want to know.
yeeeeep MUH CANADA. around here i've seen the average price around $630
I looove that set up. simple yet beautiful. Thats essentially what I was thinking. a low rise rail and some glass. there are a few sites that sell surplus . 1000 rounds for 500-something On a side note, what is the name of the pouch that fits on the buttstock. My carbine didn't come with one
I have a question that doesn't deserve it's own thread.
Looking to get an AR15, but I'm too busy with other stuff going on to build my own. What are some decent prebuilt manufacturers of ones for $1200 or less?
Holy shit is that why Canadians have so many of these things? It's cheap and I'm now jelly of syrupland.
I want to build an AR 180. I found some lowers through Nodak Spud, but I'm having a hard time finding trigger kits, stocks, and upper receivers.
Does anyone have a little compilation of websites that have all of these?
