Also, in another photo. You have a Chi-Com soldier diving into the dirt muzzle first. Sorry, but I think that even the PRC Army would teach it's troops not to allow dirt and debris clog the muzzle. That would cause one major KB! But hey, they're my enemy anyways. So I will continue to allow them to take themselves out of action.
The QBZ-95 is an assault rifle of Chinese origin. The QBZ-95 was developed in the 1990's as a new generation of assault rifles for the Chinese military. Compared to the older generation of Chinese rifles the QBZ-95 is very different. It is of a bullpup design, does not use the Kalashnikov mechanism and uses a new type of ammunition. QBZ-95 stands for Qing Buqiang Zu 1995, which is Chinese for light rifle family 1995.
The QBZ-95 is an assault rifle with a bullpup that fires the 5.8x42mm round, which was specifically developed for this new line of firearms. It uses a short stroke gas system and a rotating bolt. The limited rate of fire and a complex recoil buffer make the QBZ-95 very controllable. The furniture is fully made out of polymer and the barrel and internal mechanism are made out of metal. The rear sights are integrated in the carrying handle, which also has a mount for a 4x optical sight. Several variants that have been developed are a carbine and light support weapon. Although the variants share many components, it is not possible to reconfigure them into another version.
The QBZ-95 fires the standard version Chinese 5.8x42mm round from a 30 round magazine. The light support weapon variant also uses 75 round drum magazines. The export version fires the more common 5.56x45mm NATO round from STANAG magazines. The QBZ-95 is a select fire rifle with a limited rate of fire of about 650 rpm. The effective range is claimed to be 400 meters for the QBZ-95 and 600 meters for the QBB-95 light support weapon. It is possible to fire rifle grenades and an under barrel grenade launcher or bayonet can be fitted.
The QBZ-95 is issued to first line troops of the Chinese military. The QBZ-95 is also in use with special units of the Chinese police. The QBZ-97 export version has been exported in modest quantities to several nations in Asia.
