Norinco Type 97 NSR G2 5.56mm

The Norinco Type 97 NSR has always been a favorite for the Canadian market due to its low cost, rare bullpup configuration, and compatibility with any optic. Now coming in a Gen 2 configuration, this bullpup is standard coming with a Flat Top Upper Receiver with full length rail for mounting optics, and sights. Another addition is they now come with Keymod attachment points for the run of the forend. This allows you to mount a variety of flashlights,laser, etc.

Compatibility with any AR type magazine means you have a wide variety of ammo sources from LAR-15- Magpul M3 Mags do get the rifles function, or look, just where you want it! The Rifle is in an 18.5″ barrel, however having the “BullPup” configuration means the action is put rear of the trigger guard giving you the maximum maneuverability while maintaining optimal accuracy for a reliable shot everytime.

    Shipped Tuesday (July 4th) & received Thursday (July 6th) with AMAZING customer service. So first off, way to go Wild West! I will be buying from you again.

    On to the rifle… I haven’t shot it (or given it a good cleaning ) at this point so,this is my impression “out of the box”.

    Fit & finish is tight. A little too tight in some areas. The supplied magazine does not drop free. My LAR-15 Mags are a nightmare to get out of the mag well. The ambidextrous safety & mag release is amazing compared to the Gen 1. The bolt cycle feels smooth (again, hasn’t been cleaned or shot). The break on the tigger feels realitivly consistan when dry firing. The factory “pop-up” sights seem ok, not spectacular but ok.

    All told… As things stand with this rifle now I am happy. 5.56mm, semi-auto, & NON-RESTRICTED!

    I’ll expand my rewiew once I’ve taken it out to put some lead down range.

    So I have rounds down range on this gun now…

    120 rounds of .223 Federal “American Eagle” 55 grain FMJ boat tail & 120 rounds of .223 Federal “American Eagle” 50 grain jacketed hollow point. So here’s my thoughts on how the rifle shoots.

    1. Blue loctite is REQUIERED for the upper/rail. The bolts that secure it seem to work loose after only a few rounds.

    2. The feed ramp is fixed. Norinco machined channels into the ramp like the AR has.

    3. It’s accurate! Maybe not AR with a 20″ heavy barrel accurate but it’s putting the bullets where your want them.

    4. The factory iron sights suck! Get a good set of 3rd party irons or an optic for this rife (I’m running a Vortex Crossfire II 3-9×40 on it now with great results).

    5. The balance on it is fantastic. The ergonimic issues from the Gen 1 are still noticeable but they have gotten better.

    6. It’s stil mag sensitive but it’s an easy tweak for most (metal) mags to get a happy mating. Don’t run plastic mags! LAR15 mags with a bit of crimping are amazing (look it up on YouTube).

    7. It seems to like running wet. Lots of oil all over… You’re likely going to get splashed.

    8. Maintenance is straightforward once the “weird bullpup layout” is understood.

    9. It costs a lot less than an AR or a Tavor (& it’s not restricted like an AR).

    10. IT’S FUN TO SHOOT!
