  • 9X19 NORINCO Question

    I was going through some old ammo boxes and re-discovered some 9x19 Norinco in 50 round white-paper boxes with styrofoam holding the rounds. The boxes are marked on top "9x19 mm" and "MADE IN CHINA BY NORINCO", and on the sides "50 CARTRIDGES". The bullet is FMJ with an elongated round nose. Both the brass and the bullet are brass/gold-colored. The headstamp is "9x19" at 12 o'clock, "92" at 6 o'clock, "C" at 9 o'clock, and "J" at 3 o'clock. I fired a box or two with my Glock with no troubles just to make sure the stuff goes bang. No rust problems noted. I'm going to break in some new Korean G18 magazines with it. And now the question, is this ammo known to be corrosive?

      What he said!

      My theory has always been that any Comblock ammo from before 2000 or so is suspect. And since it takes an extra three minutes to clean for corrosive, I lean toward the "better safe than sorry" theory. When in doubt, start your cleaning process with a couple of patches wet with Windex.
