    Exclamation Type 81 in 5.56/223 rem possibility ?

    Can you bring us a proper Type 81 in 5.56/223 rem like they use to make for the states ? does it have to be resubmitted since it is a different caliber ?

    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.

    "Proper"???

    The 556 version was a commercial after thought. The only calibre that was ever original was 7.62x39...

    Calibre conversions would not require it to be resubmitted... wouldn't even need a new FRT parent entry, just a child entry.

    Yeah what fenceline said, but with TI saying they doubt an LMG version would get made I highly doubt a "proper" (lol) 223 version would get made

    If they could I’m betting it would hover fairly close to the price of the vz58 in 223 at that point in quality ya might aswell go for a vz

    Which is what people also said about the 7.62x39 version who prefer the vz58....

    I don’t understand why you’d want it. I like .223/556 but I also like 7.62x39... both have a place. I just feel this gun should be 7.62

    I'd rather it be in .308 than .223.
    Something you can shoot past 400 yards and not worry about your bullet going squirly.
    Dont have very much "red rifles" in a higher power 30 cal and would be great to be able to have one.

    There's already an option out there for you if you're into Chinese made minute of man 308 rifles.

    I agree a .308 Red Rifle would be awesome. But as I have said in the past, if a .223 comes to Canada, the more the merrier.
