The Type 81 is a gas operated, magazine fed, semi-automatic rifle. It uses a short-stroke gas piston, located above the barrel, and a two-position gas regulator. The bolt group (of the rotating bolt type) is borrowed from the Type 63 rifle. Type 81 rifles also retains the Type 63 bolt hold-open device, which catches the bolt in the open position after the last round has been fired from magazine. The fire selector – safety switch is located at the right side of the receiver, just above the pistol grip, and can be easily operated. The open sights are marked from 100 to 500 meters, with the front sight being mounted just ahead of the gas block.
Developed by the Chinese military as a replacement for their Type 56 rifles (license produced AK-47). the Type 81 was designed to have a longer service life, higher accuracy, improved durability and better controllability in full automatic firing. The Type 81 is used by multiple military and police forces across the globe.
In practice the Type 81 is well balanced and points easily. The rifle is incredibly flat shooting, comparable to a 5.56×45 in felt recoil and muzzle rise. Reliability is astounding, with to date not a single rifle coming back for failures. Lightweight and ergonomic, an asset to any shooter’s collection.
There is a second trigger stop screw included in the delivery kit, the one installed in the firearm is too long. The use of blue loctite is recommended for both the trigger stop screw and the threaded scope mount pins, to retain position during repeated use. The accuracy potential of the SR is very ammunition dependent, with best results achieved with Hornady Black 123 GR SST and American Eagle 124 GR FMJ, (av. 5 shot groups at 100 yards@ 1.5-3 MOA). Mixed results observed with other brands. 100 round break-in period was observed, whereby groups began to tighten up further after that point.
