    Positively anorexic - a full pound lighter than my R4 rifle, sans optic!

    I doubt the Chinese actually give a toss about patching up their wounded very much; there are a surplus of them, You don't have to defeat the body armour
    hit a trauma plate with a standard 7.62x51 NATO ball round and you have a smashed soldier that is out of action for a few days to a week.

    “140gn projectile at over 3000fps from a 16” barrel”

    They are about to mass produce an ideal bush pig rifle. Hopefully some nice bolt actions get developed around this.
