    To tell you the truth I would be really interested in a .223/5.56 T81, just so that way I only have to bring the one bucket of bullets to the range and can take some heat off of my other 5.56 guns.

    I like my red rifles to be by 39. But thats personal preference more power to you, but i dont think the rifle in 223 would sell sufficiently to justify its production.

    I'd buy one in 5.56. I already have a vz58 so I don't have much of a reason currently to get a Type 81 as it would be fairly similar to shoot. But 5.56 would be different enough to shoot I would be interested

    the t81 in 223 was already made in a limited number which means the factory already have the machine to make them vs a 308 version that has to be developed from the ground up .
    Mr.Trudeau,you imported thousands of unvetted "m" “refugees”and paid $10M to a terrorist. We are struggling to lead a good life yet we are obligated to pay for this privileged class so that they can eat this country alive from the inside.

    Also, the 556 would require mag's.

    They won't make an order of LMG which requires no new parts... a 556 version would require tooling up for barrel which are not a regular produced item for the T81 line...

    If we can't get LMG versions... don't expect 556 versions any faster.

    Let alone 308... which would require a redesign of the receiver to make it longer to accept the larger round and mags... and would require a new FRT given the new style of receiver.

    Exactly. Thank you. Plus TI probably doesn't give a #### about "oh I would totally get one in 5.56" as the T81 hasn't really been a fast seller to begin with.
