    M14.ca : A flat top rail not too expensive it's the goal #1 !!!

    Remember.. it's a Norinco.... at 2000$ I prefer to pay a little bit more and have a Tavor !!!
    This is 100% correct.
    I've got both- I do the math, it ain't rocket science. Which one would I buy a second of, as 'one is none, two is one'..?
    I've got the greatest faith in M.14...they seem to know their ####, unlike others.

    This is great news. I'm in for the flat-top and the charging handle...especially the charging handle.
    I appreciate that input from CGN'ers is being taken into account.

    +1 for a slightly rounded angled front. I'd go for 2 less ridges on the rail. I can't see what someone would need to do with 14" of rail that can't be done with 13". Also, does the front sight really need to go? Because maybe it could still be used with some kind of low profile rear sight. As in...my dream upper for the T97, rendered in the poor man's photoshop (MS Paint):

    The integrated flip up rear sight would of course make it much more expensive, but one can dream, maybe some day it could be done...

    A 7th vote. Thank-you for this post and image, however, no, you cannot reliably secure your 1913 picatinny rail the way you have shown it here. In comparison, we are building a military grade part that will be secure, optically precise and remain so for the life of the rifle.

    Yeah I guess real life engineering has more constraints than ms paint's cut and paste tools.

    I read somewhere that you stated there's something that makes it impractical to just make a drop-in, non-communist-railed replacement for the upper, but I can't remember what it was or where I read that. Could you enlighten me?

    We are working on producing a secure, precise optics mount with the lowest sight plane at an acceptable manufacturing cost with the simplest method of installation for the myriad levels of end user skill sets who will be purchasing this product. The best choices to that affect are being worked through now to bring about the modernization of the T97NSR: Stage 1. The front and rear sights are not part of that modernization process.

    Let's face it, the irreversible modifications to the gun will be a drawback for a lot of people.

    It is possible to return it to factory original. Two replacement parts required but re-install will be more difficult. But as mentioned, this is Stage 1 modernizing the T97NSR.

    Yes another vote for the angled front version, 3-5 slots less up front, maybe a textured beadblast finish underneath the anodizing.
    Keep up the good work, would love to see an improved mag release as well.

    Noted, thank-you.
