Subject: Chinese Bull-Pup (Type 95) Assault Rifle
Exemplo Ducemus    7/9/2007 8:02:34 PM
Has anyone else noticed the similarities between this weapon (see SP Military Photos) and the British SA80? Is it also 5.56 mm? Have they experienced similar problems - 32 modifications since acceptance? Exemplo Ducemus

No. Beyond it being a bullpup, it looks pretty different.

I believe they have a variant chambered for 5.56x45mm (Type 97) that is offered for export (or will be), but the Chinese military version is chambered for their proprietary 5.8x42mm round.
