Just throwing this at the wall and seeing what sticks, I've been worrying the piss outta RM about this the past day or two
.. so here it is for the publics eyes
C.J.A. China Jing An exports/imports, was/is owned by the Peoples Armed Police, near as I can tell in late 80's, '88-'89 the ATF busted them, the Chinese owned importers, for importing full auto Korean Aks and trying to sell them.
Ironically... this was roughly the time..'89ish time frame... China Trade International Inc, the C&A, C8A stamped ones in Va Beach changed their name to Delta Investment Group Inc. or D.I.G. Now, this begs the question, how many others did this, and was the name change to avoid investigation. Or their import company shut down, so they opened a new one. Some of the American import companies were Chinese owned, sponsored, whatever the term is, if the ATF shut one down, did they open another and export and imported under another name, maybe this explains the Norinco explosion in the late '80s, they were few and far between till this point.
And, I still cant help but wonder is there some kind of correlation between CJA Southfield MI and C&A Va Beach Va, maybe it's just the C*A similarities and there is nothing there, I don't know..
GLNIC was an import company in the US owned by... the Peoples Liberation Army, along with the GLINC stamp, they can also sport the CGA stamp, their main rein in the US seems to have ended somewhere around 1989, although some small amounts later do show up. The letters "CGA" can be found looking like a prefix on the serial number on early-import GLNIC AK47 rifles, and it appears that CGA was the exporter for most of the pre-1989 GLNIC imported AK47s and SKS rifles.
