The PLA’s paramilitary/gendarmerie police force, the People’s Armed Police, are apprently giving thier old Type 81 rifles a tacti-cool upgrade.
The upgrade includes a quad rail, foregrip/bipod, optics and flashlight.
Previously, the PLA said they wanted to phase out the out Type 81 within the next few years. The Type 81 is chambered in 7.62x39mm and China is standardizing on the 5.8x42mm round.
The optic says “EOTech” on the side, but I wonder if it is a counterfeit. EOTech has had many problems with counterfeits being exported out of China.
