You didn't mention what you were looking for, but you could try Coyote Cap for some custom work. I have one of his customized model 87's and I love it.

Thank you Ranger Z.

The site you suggested is exceptional.

I'm basically looking for sling mounts, torch and laser mounts, snap on sights, the leather loop knuckle saver, etc...

I've lightly polished the internals and now cycles a lot better.

The tube can be hard to load and the main spring is very strong, so using muscle is a must.

I'm in Australia so getting parts and what not can be a pain.

Glad to be of assistance. Did you find the ‘Gunsmithing Simplified’ section? http://coyotecap.com/gunsmithingsimplified.htm
It is a wealth of info on working on a Model ’87 for any gunsmith not used to working on one.

Here is a listing for a few things that might help you get where you want to be.
Sling Swivel.

Yes. I got mine when they first started producing them. They had a lot of problems back then. That is why I got mine from Coyote Cap. I had him do the tune up on it to take out all the bugs and mine works great. I understand that now days the quality is much better than the early models.
If you should have problems I would print out the info listed here and take it to a good gunsmith that you trust and have him work on it. http://coyotecap.com/gunsmithingsimplified.htm

Then you can give a look at these gunsmithing on a Norinco '87 video of your fellow countryman ( he should be from Melbourne)
this is the first one

The only problem I had with mine was the ammo. Certain brands when fired, were too long and the empty case would catch on the reciever when extracted.
The funny bit. Winchester said they couldn't make them, but the Chinese had no problem. Then Winchester said they could, but then it was too late.
Apparently Winchester was oblivious to the "Cowboy Action shooters"
