    The rifle looks like a Norinco.

    It's a Chinese B1.

    Whether it is worth fixing up is entirely up to you and what you want to gain from the exercise. From a purely monetary point of view it's not worth fixing up so don't waste your money.

    However, from a tinkerer’s point of view........ If you view this as a project rifle from which you want to learn something, then it may be worthwhile. Sometimes the knowledge and personal satisfaction gained from working on these rifles, without the fear of stuffing up a high end rifle, outweigh the money spent, within reason of course.

    A few examples:

    Thanks for the BAM link Riaan. It makes me want to work on that coat hanger B3-4/WF600 of mine.

    Thanks, i will use it to tinker around with and see what i end up with.
    Does anyone know where you can get new screws from or will normal flat end screws hold up to the recoil?

    Use a thread locker like Loctite blue. If it holds the BMW's I work on together, it'll hold up to an air rifle's recoil.
