The QBZ-95 (Chinese: 95式自动步枪; pinyin: 95 Shì Zìdòng Bùqiāng; literally: "Type 95 Automatic Rifle") is a bullpup assault rifle from from the People's Republic of China.
Its English designation QBZ-95 comes from 轻武器, 步枪, 自动, 1995; pinyin: Qīngwuqi, Bùqiāng, Zìdòng, 1995; literally "Light weapon, Rifle, Automatic, 1995".
The weapon is manufactured by Arsenal 266, part of Norinco and Arsenal 296, under Jianshe Corp. The weapon uses a newly-developed ammunition type of Chinese origin, the 5.8x42mm DBP87. The QBZ-95 consists of a system of firearms using a common design. This family includes a carbine variant, a standard rifle, and a light support weapon.
The QBZ-95 notably lacks Picatinny rails. Some prototype models in China were created featuring Picatinny rails, RIS, and sometimes lowered carrying handles, issued in limited numbers. Outside of China, export QBZ-97s sometimes have aftermarket RIS attachments added to them, and in the Canadian market the Type 97 NSR has a Flat Top version with picatinny rails and the T97.ca project makes railed upper modifications for the Type 97 NSR.
