The new T97NSR FTU™ (Flat Top Upper) is a CNC machined, 6061 alloy, 1913 Picatinny optics rail, firearms accessories mounting platform and protective hand guard. It was produced by the product developers at M14.ca, the OEM of the M14.ca Blackfeather "RS" rifle stock and the M14.ca CASM™ scope mount series, under the new web site: www.T97.ca. The T97.ca FTU™ is the first in a series of planned upgrades for the Norinco T97NSR bullpup rifle. The FTU™ replaces the T97NSR's factory iron sights, original plastic hand guard as well as the original T97NSR charging handle with a larger, non-reciprocating charging handle (NRCH) (a reciprocating charging handle (RCH) is also available) changing the operational dynamics of the original rifle.
First, the FTU™ is designed to offer a lowered, secure, optically precise solution for mounting AR15-compatible, modern optics and iron sights on the T97NSR bullpup. Second, the new NRCH provides a forward locking, non-reciprocating, extended handle with an oversized grasping contour and built-in grip surface. The NRCH utilizes a built-in carrier that will stand up to side torque and hard operational use as well as provide for the smooth operation and cycling of the rifle action from the left or right side of the T97NSR. Lastly, the FTU™ can be optionally fielded with a NRCH or RCH, or both.
The FTU™ extends from the rear-most section of the top flat of the original, unaltered butt stock, to the front of the rifle behind the Gas Regulator resulting in a long, 14" length of 1913 Picatinny rail for mounting heavy scopes, red dots or iron sights. Note here that one can remove the Regulator without having to remove the optics rail. Similarly, one can clean the rifle with the FTU™ in place.
