Technically assault rifle T91 (Type 91) is similar to T86, which is developed on the basis of the Taiwanese rifle T65 (T65 is designed based on the American rifle AR-15 / M16) using a shorter length barrel and folding butt. Therefore T91 both structurally and externally significantly similar to the American M4 carbine, but unlike in the device has the exhaust system.
T91 assault rifle uses the vapor-automatic barrel locking bolt action (same gate American M16 rifle and M4). The main difference from the T91 M16 / M4 - is the use of the gas piston with short stroke instead of direct venting, which increased the reliability of automatic weapons. The gas piston is located above the barrel and is hidden inside the plastic forearm.
