Chinese Special Forces Competing With AR-15 Rifles

    We recently blogged about an elite Chinese counter-terrorism force armed with China-made AR-15 rifles. It turns out that Chinese Special Forces are also using the AR-15. These photos were taken at the 5th annual Warrior Competition held in Jordan where Special Forces from 18 countries competed against each other. Chinese teams came in first and second place. The Chinese teams were armed with Norinco AR-15 rifles, some of them customized with aftermarket stocks and other accessories.
