JW-8
« on: June 05, 2018, 10:41:36 PM »
Honestly I don't know if this is a true military trainer or a trainer for high school cadets in the age of Mao, but the 1966 date suggests it's not a commercial rifle made for sale to the US and I don't think your average little red book reading citizen of the People's Republic of China in 1966 was able to buy it at the corner hardware store. So I stuck a helmet in front of it and posted it in the "Milsurp Rimfire" forum  :))

More confessions: it was listed at an auction as "Unknown Maker .22 Military Training Rifle" but I saw the target emblem that made me think of blue box Russian match ammo and the stock wood and SN that made me think Chinese and decided: "what the heck, I'll toss out a $150 ($172.50) max bid". That was sufficient, so here it is.

Texted GM some pics after the auction with a  ??? look on my face.  He immediately knew the model and that it was reverse engineered from, a Brno Model 1. 

Anyhow, here it is. Anyone with more information, please chime in, because I haven't found much on the internet.

We wants it......we needs it!!!  drool2  pretty please 'ol buddy 'ol pal.. I won the game of i.d. my rifle. rofl2

Not a whole lot of info out there on them... But, I think it takes the same magazine as all of mine... The Cz 452 22lr should fit with minimal fitting. Usually an actual Norinco branded magazine will cost you 2 Cz mags, or more.

Also... Check and see something, since you won't send it to your favorite turd,  rofl2 check the twist rate on the rifling. I bet it's different than the regular 16 to 1 twist rate.   Also, is it a 20 or 22 inch barrel?
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun – take the cannoli.

I said I was an addict........I didn't say I had a problem

I think I’ll keep it  think1  :)

Thanks, I’ve had my eye on a CZ mag just to have an extra.
 
I haven’t measured the twist rate but the barrel is 580mm (22.83”)
