Type 81M Underfolder

Starting at: $1,199.00

Introducing the all-new Type 81M, exclusively from Tactical Imports. The Type 81M is a modernized version of the Type 81 rifle, with a number of changes to improve the performance of the platform.

Starting with the sights, the front sight is moved out to the end of the barrel, providing a longer sight picture. This added sight picture makes the rifle more forgiving and easier to shoot. The sights themselves have had a major change, with the removal of the top bar on the rear sight and top quarter of the front sight hood, completely opening up the sight picture for superior target acquisition and situational awareness. The end of the barrel is threaded, allowing for a wide array of optionally available muzzle accessories.

The magazine release has been widened into a paddle type shape, allowing for exceptional ergonomics and faster magazine changes. The bolt has been blackened for a monotone look, with the receiver finished in a black sandblasted finish. The handguard has had palm swell integration for better comfort, control and handling of the platform. The stock is available in a fixed or, for the first time, an underfolding option. The underfolding stock uses a side button to lock the stock either open or closed. The stock can be folded or extended with a magazine in place.

These changes result in a platform that is flatter shooting, more ergonomic, easier to use, and more modular. More than simply the sum of its parts, the Type 81M is simply the best performing and most accomplished Type 81 ever made.

Comes with two 5/30 magazines, oil bottle and manual. All parts and components are brand new production, not surplus. Non-restricted class, in-stock now, while supplies last. Due to classical manufacturing techniques used for T81 production, there may be minor aesthetic imperfections which are normal and will not impact function. Full line-up of available accessories can be seen HERE Note: Not compatible with Mastermount side rail, due to position of underfolder hinge that blocks sideplate.

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 with the right hand thumb. 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). 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.
