Actually the China Militry Museum in Beijing has one of the most bountiful collections of weapons in the worldwide, You can find the weapons from almost every countires in 20 century. Even some very rare models and experimental models.
It's becasue in early 20 century, China is involved in constant wars, warlord wars, sino-japan war, civil war, etc. And China had little its own weapon manufacturing capabilty at that time. So the warlords and government tried all the methods to acquire weapons from other countries. Many countries sold weapons to China which actually weren't adopt by its own army, or just at experimental period.
