@by78 you can probably screen cap some good pics from this video, my screenshots are shit, file sizes are too big won't let me upload directly
Either they run their ware hard, or those things ain't exactly mission critical?First motorcycle has a bunged up windscreen, and one rear mirror missing.
I kinda agree with your observation. I think the overall layout of the rifle is excellent, but it does give out a "generic" vibe. I think this is because the hand guard and the stock of the rifle are designed to look very basic. 191'stock and hand guard just looks plain, they get the job done, but doesn't look too stylish. They neither look clean nor complex, thus giving out a generic vibe.I love the QBZ-191, the proportions, ergonomics, everything looks right.
Only complaint I have is it looks a little too generic black rifle
To be blunt, first of all we don't even know if the PLA have adopted Picatinny Rail (i.e. a GJB equivalent of the MIL-STD-1913); second, even higher-tier infantry like the airborne troops they still go with just iron sights instead of bringing out their optics to use.But that is just my take, what do you guys think? (Overall I still really like the rifle, def my favorite of all PLA weapons)
Yeah I am definitely not worried about it, I am merely pointing out specific aesthetic features of the gun. QBZ191 has already provided an excellent platform to work with, it has so much potential to expand.To be blunt, first of all we don't even know if the PLA have adopted Picatinny Rail (i.e. a GJB equivalent of the MIL-STD-1913); second, even higher-tier infantry like the airborne troops they still go with just iron sights instead of bringing out their optics to use.
Only when PLA in general adopted the same attitude with accessories as their western counterparts, we'd then see a move towards further accessorize weapon platform such as AR.
The buttstock does look like some fat-trimming is called for, but changes only have a chance to take shape after formal adoption, when after-market mod kits becomes available - we know there are such because Type 79 and QBZ-95 all have quite a selection of after-market mod kits, so when QBZ-191 becomes widely issued, that means in a few years time, modded guns will be seen with PAP and SWAT teams.
