QBZ-97 / 97A
QBZ-97 (5.56 mm Assault Rifle)
The Chinese have constructed an export version of the QBZ-95. the QBZ-97, which is similar to the QBZ-95 in all respects except that it is chambered in 5.56 mm NATO instead of the original Chinese 5.8 mm cartridge and has a deep magazine well designed to accept STANAG 4179 M16 style magazines. This design helps the gunner reload the magazine more quickly and more comfortably.
