    SBR a Norinco 320 or RMUZ-09?

    I recently purchased a Norinco 320 with the Sporter stock. I originally wanted to SBR this gun but I heard that these are not compatible with other barrels, I can't just swap out the 16" barrel with a 10" from RobertRTG or Green Mountain. Is this true? If so, would it be better just to SBR a RMUZ-09 instead?

    I belive for import reason they welded the jacket nut on the gun so you cant easily unscrew it ..And they did some other things to make it a "sporting" gun for import ..See the note second on this site for more ..So yeah either bust the nut or saw it off ..But if you want the full uzi a little more work will be needed ...Or just SBR the other

    You just have to cut the tac welds to get the nut off. Its not too hard to do

    Cutting welds is not the issue I'm concerned about. I'm concerned that Norinco Uzis are incompatible with shorter barrels on the market, like the ones from Green Mountain. Can anyone confirm that for me?

    Any barrel that will fit a semi auto IMI Uzi will work in a Norinco.....just make sure the bbl you buy is the right diameter for a semi auto trunion and cut for a restrictor ring.

    Don't cut that Norinco bbl.....they are chrome lined and exceptionally accurate

    The McKay (RMUZ) as it will be a lot easier to 922r.

    I had my Norinco barrel cut and it's still as accurate as it ever was. Great gun!

    Cut the welds on the barrel nut and replace the barrel with a semi auto spec barrel.

    I had a Norinco 320 (full length)& LOVED it. One of many guns I'd like to have back.

    I SBR'd a Norinco 320 and used a standard Semi-spec short barrel. It works fine. Don't cut the original barrel in case you ever want to return it to original configuration.
    If you're going to knock a man down...do it so he can't get up.

    Good Advice!
    Mark the barrel, not the receiver.

    Someone SBR’d a Norinco. Now some clueless guy is selling it on Gunbroker.

    You have to wonder if it was registered as an SBR or if someone just put a short barrel and arm brace on it.

    To "reconfigure to be a handgun", it would have to be registered as an SBR.
    Unless it was, it's illegal, even if it was inherited.
