    The MSMC is getting a LOT of attention because of the COD BLACK OPS 2 game.It is being praised all over the internet! It is quite a coup by OFB!

    MSMC is good looking gun and it is light also. I expect that it will be used by COBRA force and GHATAK force, for testing it it in real time situations and then if it succeeds then give to the ARMY.........

    Cobras use X95 - 12000 of the carbines - while Ghatak has already ordered 1500+ Brugger Thomet MP9s. MSMC might replace OFB made Sterling carbines if ever gets into service.

    MSMC is a PDW, Amogh carbine is intended to replace unreliable 9mm carbine for Army and it will be issued to those who are now unreliable 9mm carbine

    2. Black fiber body..
    3. Rifle Quality improved..
    4. Sound reduction..
