    So I bought this a few years ago and I thought I would get a chance to shoot it a bit, but it has sat in the safe since I picked it up. I never shot it and the previous owner only shot it once in about 10 years. It was listed as excellent to unissued when he bought it and all serial numbers match. 1976 manufacture date. It has a Yugoslavian practice training grenade and comes with about 300 blanks to launch it.

    FWIW, I bought one from Century some time back, very similar (VG condition, all matching) but without the grenade, 1972 mfg and sold it last week for $400 with 100 rds of x39.

    DISCLAIMER: Ban state price.

    The rifle, $400-$450 alone. Not sure what the grenade is worth - can't find one like it for sale. I'm guessing it ought to be worth at least $50. The blanks seem to be going for 10-15 cents per, right now.

    Do you think $500 for everything be reasonable for forum members or pushing the limit?

    I think you could get it if you are patient. It is a nice rifle and the grenade has a lot of cool factor.

    The grenade came from Serbia. It was shipped into the country in a couple of different pieces to avoid problems in customs.

    Dude, take that beauty out & shoot it. I've got a very nice Norinco that I love. Fun gun, sweet shooter & actually pretty accurate- mine will shoot 2" at 50yds, standing, unsupported, which is as well as I can shoot my .30-30 Marlin with irons.
