About the Handgun:
Fashioned after the military type 54 Tokarev with manual safety and contoured grips.
About the Manufacturer:
This mainland China corporation was established in 1980. Under the official English name Norinco, they manufacture vehicles, machinery, optical-electronic products, oil field equipment, chemicals, light industrial products, explosives and blast materials, as well as civil and military firearms and ammunition. In the area of handguns, Norinco is known for making respectable copies of popular models such as the 1911, CZ, SIG, High Power and Tokarev pistols. Since 1994 various politically motivated import bans have kept Norinco handguns from the US market.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
