More Photos of The Elusive QBZ-03 Rifle In Action

The QBZ-03 is the mysterious conventional-layout younger brother of the more well-known Chinese QBZ-95 rifle. While the QBZ-95 uses a novel hybrid mechanism, the 03 uses the mechanism of the older 7.62mm Type 81 and 5.8mm Type 87, but marries this to architecture similar to the QBZ-95. Kurtis sends along a whole whopping set of photos of the QBZ-03 in use with PLA troops, most of which I’ve never seen before (WARNING: PIC HEAVY):

Thanks, Kurtis!

    So I guess in this forum, you're allowed to be attacked, but not allowed to defend yourself? You remove my civil comment to Mike H saying that the governments debt to China is it's own, not the peoples, but leave his nasty little retort up?

    Nice to see that the freedoms I fought for are being honored. Just another site that will go on my "do not click" list. Have fun.

      @Phil W "Associate Editor TFB" So, if my opinion differs from the rest of the posters, it's a negative comment? And for the record, I haven't attacked anyone who didn't attack me first. That's called defense BTW. But hey, I never expected anything different from all the far left leaning around here.
