Chinese Police with FN Minimi Clone

    Copies of the FN Minimi have been photographed in use by Chinese police.

    The existance of this clone was first reported by Max Popenker & Tony Williams, both well known to TFB readers, in their book Machine Gun: The Development of the Machine Gun from the Nineteenth Century to the Present Day. Apparently the Chinese plan on exporting it.
