    norinco being cheap is now a myth. they are almost as much as US, and in some cases more expensive than the US.

    dont believe me? look at AR's, norinco AR $600, US $650. norinco doesnt make the M60, or MG34, or M249, so there is alot more cost on those weapon platforms to manufacture.

    Honestly, most anything Chinese being cheap is now a myth.

    The price gap has shrunk to the point where it just isn't worth it to buy Chinese if there is an alternative product manufactured somewhere else to better standards. In many cases once you factor in the cost to quality ratio it's cheaper to spend more on the non Chinese product.

    The days of "well if this cheap Chinese thing breaks I'll just throw it in the junk and go buy a couple more" are long gone.

    It's impossible not to buy Chinese products but I always try to spend my money elsewhere first if there's an alternative.

    Flat rate shipping to Canada is 25.00USD on all accessory and ammunition orders regardless of quantities ordered. Firearms are exported to Canada at a flat rate of 25.00USD per firearm.
