Hi guys. Enjoyed this episode, good to have Trevor back! Trevor mentioned the Norinco m305 being built with US tooling. That is a commonly held misconception due to their being two Chinas. The "Republic of China" is Taiwan. Taiwan got the tooling. The commie China is believed to have gotten specs etc through espionage, which is why their version is good too. I can't find a link handy but in Lee Emerson's book M14 Rifle History and Development he provides evidence of this.
