Lightbulb Norinco reverse engineers the SCAR!

And it looks pretty damn good to boot!


BREAKING: New NORINCO NAR-556 and NAR-751 Modern Assault, Battle and Automatic Rifles





NORINCO and Chongqing Jianshe Industry Group have unveiled a brand new modern 5.56mm and 7.62mm rifle platforms. We do not know much about these new guns other than the photos included here, not even the source of these photos which were passed to us anonymously. What we can infer is that these rifles are intended for the export market to compete with modern rifle platforms such as the Kalashnikov AK-12 and the Galil ACE and to a lesser extent Western modern rifle platforms such as the H&K 416/17 and SCAR-L/H. They will most likely to be manufactured by North China Industries and marketed internationally by Jianshe Industry Group.

The name of the rifles “NAR” (Norinco Automatic Rifle?) suggests the rifle internals are derived from the poor selling 7.62x51mm NAR-10, NORINCOs first attempt at competing in the modern service rifle market. According to Guns.ru, the NAR-10 / LR-14 is a select fire short stroke piston with a conventional rotating bolt… and according to me it looks as ugly as sin.
The NAR-10 aka. the LR-14


The substantial difference in the shape of the NAR-10 receiver makes me think the NAR-556 / NAR-751 does not have the same action. It looks like it may have an AR-18 style action, like the Remington ACR and FN SCAR.
What we can say for sure is that the the new NAR appears to have a metal upper receiver and polymer lower receiver (which are nicely color matched). It as a fixed charging handle with bolt hold open functionality. The gas system is adjustable and the controls may be ambidextrous. The pistol grip is moulded into the lower. The stock is foldable and it looks like there is a button at the rear that may allow limited length adjustment.
The rifle has a full length picatinny rail on top and keymod attachment points on the side and on the bottom. It looks like it will be supplied with metal flip-up Backup Iron Sights.

The NAR-556 uses conventional 30 round aluminium STANAG (AR-15) magazines while the NAR-751 uses a polymer 20 round magazines.
The NAR-556 Squad Automatic Weapon variant of the NAR-556 has a longer barrel but no other visible differences. All three models are select fire.
These rifles are going to give Kalashnikov and IWI stiff competition for rifle contracts in the developing world, especially in Africa where IWI has had a lot of success selling the Galil ACE. China is in a good position to leverage the large amount of aid and development they do in the region and turn that into defense sales. It will be interesting to see what Jianshe Industry does with these guns.

THANKS KLIN - TON I, for outlawing good cheap ammo, AND the possibility of owning these!

ALSO thanks for making it up to them, by trading secret nuclear missile technology, for campaign bucks in '96 & 2000!
