Type 95 assault rifle

It seems that there isn't much discussion on or about the Type 95 assault rifle anymore. The rifle has some flaws and i was wondering have the been fixed? What modifications would you do if you were to slighlty to remake the rifle into a modified version Type-95A or even a completly re-model a new rifle with a conventional design Type 06 maybe:china: ?

Re: Type 95 assault rifle

The type-95 has went through some quiet improvements. Externally, the heatsinks have changed from the first ones seen in '99. Can't say anything about internals. Rumor has it there's a new conventional-layout rifle, something like the Type-05, which is supposed to be pretty good all around, waiting to be declassified.

i think the conventional layout is called type-03 and it is in the small arms section of this website.

well last thread about type-95 have stamped out some of the major flaws that has plagued this weapon, but the issue that was talked about was the scope mounted on the handle bar making the shooters head totally exposed. What i would suggest is that keep the handle bar but make it detachable and make the cocking thing (forgot what it was called) on the side so you can place the scope on a flat surface.

Um no. The type-05 (or whatever the name will eventually be) is not to be confused with the Type-03, which probably will not enter service in numbers.
The cocking lever being beneath the carrying handle has some interesting advantages. IMO, better solution is integrated optics in the carrying handle.

I would install Picatinny rail instead of standard carrying handle w. telescope sight. That way PLAN could install any type of iron, telescope or night vision sights on the upper rail. Lower rail could be used to mount various attachments like tactical front grips, flash-lights or grenade launcher. Side rails can be used for equipment like laser-aiming devices...

Picatinny rail is fine as long as you figure out what to do with the cocking lever. I think PLAN will use/is using Type-56C.

Re: Type 95 assault rifle

I think they just need to make the carry handle/rear sight detachable but keep the cocking handle on top but change it to a style similar to the G36 i.e. flips to the side. A carry handle with a built in optic would be a good idea also. Seems asham that after all the work has been put into the T 95 they are moving away from it. I think that infantry who ride in armored vehicles (APCs, IFVS) should stick with the bull pup and other infantry units could go to a conventional layout.

Re: Type 95 assault rifle

With the flaws mentioned earlier i was referring to the prohibition of firing from the left due to the bullpup configuration. Have they fixed this problem? Also when fighting it would mostly be in urban environments meaning CQB so if you are trying to fire around the corner on the righthand side wouldn't that expose the majority of your body, due to the gun being helded on the right. firing on the left handside around the corner would be easy and safer. I know that PLA are taught to fire right handed but wouldn't it be sensible to have some left hand shooters in the PLA to counter this problem of firing around the corner on the right hand side?

Re: Type 95 assault rifle

I doubt there is much to be done about the right hand only firing with out doing a major redesign to allow the ability to switch the side it ejects on. What would be preferable though is to have a forward ejection system similar to the FN F2000. Although i wonder if a flap over the ejection port could act as a deflector and push the shells downward. the only problem i see with that is that the flap could push the shell casings back into the ejection port and that would be bad!

Im not quite a fan of the FN F2000. But yes this could be a possibility of using this ejection system. But instead of a major redesign could a brass deflector be placed to enable left hand firing such as the Singapore assault rifle SAR-21. The bullet casing would be ejected foward. This would be more cost efficient and time saving. For the handle bit yes for a removable handle due to the scope being to high but wouldn't a reflex-type ("red dot") sight by suitable instead of a scope
