Different caliber than a 56, but it's a Norinco and legal if you Kalifornicate it. I saw one at the last Ventura show.

no thanks :)
i was offered to buy a norinco type 56 from a friend who is moving to florida.
here are a few pics... the receiver appears to be a CA import from way back when?
and no, the firearm is not in CA it is in NV now.
i coulda scored this at a great deal also... a price the even the misses approved of. owell, if it was meant to be it was meant to be :(
EDIT: if i were to have my buddy break it down i could legally purchase everything else minus the receiver to rebuild legal variant correct? and if i do so, wouldnt the triangle norinco symbol 59S still be apparent on the rifle? or is it just the receiver that is illegal and if so i dont see any markings other than the importers marking?

Just the receiver is the wicked nasty baby killing part. The rest of the parts are ok. You would have to demill the parts out, then get a correct 1.6mm receiver from these guys...
Then reassemble and neuter.
It would be a shame to destroy a collectible gun, but it would just make the rest all the more valuable.

It's not worth the effort or the $$$. Buy a romy kit and NDS3. Piece of cake.
Also save the Type 56 from destruction, there ain't any more coming in.
.... is the norinco type 56 california legal? .....
No, NeoWeird is correct, the Norinco 56, 56S, 84S, and 86S were banned by Roberti-Roos. However before SB23 came into effect in 2000, some California dealers were bringing in and selling those variants marked 56S-1, 56S-2, 56S-3, and 86S-1, since they weren't marked exactly like the ban listing.
