Its seems this offer is moving forward. If the DND would have a choice of firearms to choose from ( taking out the AK/type56 series as these are not 5.56 caliber and non STANAG magazine compatible ). Choices would be:

Norinco CQ 5.56mm Type A Assault Carbine (m4 unlicensed copy and currently used by the BJMP and some LGUs for law enforcement duties )




Looks like this is what they went with

The sniper scopes, meanwhile, will be used by the military.

The first batch of the weapons, amounting to around $7 million donated by China last June, were also given to the PNP. It aimed to highlight the renewed ties of the two countries under the Duterte administration.

The new set of rifles and ammunition donated by the government of China to the Philippines will be used by the Philippine National Police (PNP), Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said Thursday.

“According to the directive of the President they will be given to the PNP. If you remember the PNP tried to buy firearms from the US but it has taken them too long to deliver. We are lucky the Chinese government stepped in,” he told reporters at the handover ceremony at Camp Aguinaldo.
Chinese Ambassador Zhao Jinjuan led the turnover of 3,000 M4 rifles, three million rounds of ammunition, and 30 sniper scopes to Lorenzana and the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

The donation, which includes rifles, ammunition and sniper scopes, is the second batch of armaments that China handed over to the Philippine government this year. In accepting China's arms donation, Philippine defense and military authorities lauded China's contribution to maintaining peace and fighting terrorist groups in the Philippines. "The continued support of China to the Philippines signifies a new era in our countries' goodwill relations. This paves the path for a broader and stronger Sino-Philippine security cooperation in the future," Lorenzana said. (source: Xinhua)
