The new Chinese FN MAG/M240 7.62mm GPMG knock off

It looks like Norinco is really trying hard to get the Iraqi and Afghan new army/police's re-equip order. Only few things are different than the real MAG: a simpler 3-stage gas regulator, the aluminum butt stock with buildin recoil buffer and the rear sight that has a quick-detachable optics mount. They didn't even bothered to actually improve the MAG design like change to a side ejection or replace it's titling block locking bolt or reduce its ungainly weight. In fact the Norinco copy weights even heavier than the real MAG.
