    If DA was to do it, it will be already done.
    A conversion kit from any manufacturer - would be a good idea...

    I bought one of the Norinco M14s a decade ago. Each and every time I took it to the range something stupid broke, last one was a poor case hardening job on the hammer & disconnector causing it to do 3 round bursts before jamming.

    Junk and will never purchase another of thier products, forget re-tooling or re-building.
    The only upside to this would be the possibility of getting some money for the POS on a buyback.

    We just need affordable parts kits for all the bare receivers that made their way here from Italy. Where'd all the parts off those guns end up? USA?

    After everything the Chinese Communist Party has done to the rest of the world, you still want to prop up their economy?
    when guns are outlawed we become subjects.

    given that garands are more finicky and require more precise work, the chicom copies will either:

    1 - Be better built; or
    2 - Be garbage.

    You choose.

    Yes. The rifles were to go south but due to laws being past, the receivers were not allowed to go to the USA. Parts were allowed and now most anything that has an Italian manufacturer marking commands a premium price.

    So a breda receiver is now, what, 60$ instead of 50$?

    The Turks should do this well and at a good price. Judging from Tisas handguns and Huglu shotguns we may be in to something!

    As far as I know they can't export rifles due to their local laws.
