Does anyone have/or has used, the Norinco JW-25 K98 .22 lookalike?

If so what is their performance like?

Im in the market for a .22 to cull rabbits and I thought that one would be cool, kinda like a baby mauser!

I have one that I bought back when I was in service (about 15 years ago). Great little Mauser look-alikes. Bolt action, has a five-round removable clip-magazine. Very accurate, fun to shoot. I believe they were originally called the Norinco KKW TU33/34.

Problem is, Clinton closed the doors on Norinco imports and they are hard to find. I have seen several on Gunbroker some time back. MARSTARS out of Canada lists some.

Edit:
After checking out their website, I noticed the little US flag at the bottom of the page. Being that the JW25 is a Chinese made gun, they cant import one to you. Better to check out Gunbrokers and Shotgun News, etc, unless you know someone thats selling one here. :cry:

A Dealer at the local gunshowes has had one still NIB but is asking $350 for it. It looks really nice and I'ed like to have one, but his price is just a little too high.

Norinco will be opening a factory here in the US this year. They plan to have an AK on the market by this summer. I can't wait to see what 22's they will offer.

Reading their web site, it doesn't look like Norinco is opening a US factory. It looks like an American citizen is applying to obtain the Norinco US trademarks so he can manufacture some things and sell them in the US under the Norinco name. It wouldn't make sense for a Chinese company to open a US factory that would have to comply with US labor and environmental laws.

Thanks for the responses Guys. I rang a Gun shop near me in Australia and the dealer recons he has 3 of these on the shelf. Can anyone tell me if it is milled for scope mounts or is it a drill and tap job? Im getting two, One for rabbiting and one for iron sight use.

raising this thread from the dead

How hard are the mags to find... numrich is out of stock, but this site:
http://www.acmefirearms.com.au/CZ%20Pro ... azines.htm
seems to suggest that CZ .22 mags will fit the norinco's... any truth to that?

thanks

Unfortunately, I dont know the answer to that.

$55 bucks for a plastic 5 shot 22 magazine? and that’s in Australia. What would it cost to have it shipped to the U.S.? The ad says:

5 and 10 round polymer magazines to suit the following rifles

CZ ZKM 452 and 453 rifles.
Bruno model 1 and 2.
Chinese copy of the Bruno, Norinco’s JW-15a and JW-25a.

Either 5 or 10 round, polymer .22lr magazine start at the special price of $55.00 each. Includes postage Australia wide.

Image

Is a JW-15a/25a the Mauser look-alike?

I have the original mag and haven’t ever looked for another one. Personally, I would take a look around at local gun shows or check the rifle mags like Shotgun News, etc. Magazine with 5 rounds is great but if I ever lost it, it would probably just become a single shot bolt action rifle.

As the action of the Norinco Jw25a is a direct copy of the CZ then the mags will fit. I know cause I got a 10 rnd Cz mag and it fitted onto mine no worries.

Instead of trying to get an Australian dealer to send one to you try triple K USA. They are the ones who sold them to Acme firearms in the first place.

Or take you rifle to your local gun shop who stocks CZ rimfire mags and try one for fit. The Chinese manufactures may not hold to as tight a tolerance as the Cz ones.
