Hey all, does anyone know where I can get parts for my Norinco shotgun?:confused: I know Norinco is not all that great, but it is a fun little replica shotgun. (1897 Trench Broom)

Thanks in advance.

My girlfriend bought a Norinco 1897 for Cowboy Action Shooting and something on it was broken the first time she tried to shoot it. She took it back to the dealer, who was also a gunsmith. He called the Norinco distributor to get either replacement parts or a replacement shotgun, but they said there would be a two month wait for either. So he fixed it himself using some Winchester 1897 parts he had in the shop. He said all of the parts looked like they would interchange with original Winchester parts. If so, then you can probably just get parts from Brownells and Ebay.

Great! Thanks for the info! Will it break down (cleaning-wise) as the original? Not much intel came with this shotgun.

I'm not sure. We don't have a real 1897 to compare the Norinco to.
