Indo Tibetian Border Police member with a Ghatak
This rifle is aesthetically pleasing, maybe due to flatter profile due to a milled body and an angular top receiver cover. That handguard though is filthy and I had doubts if that upper handguard will stick around once the lower handguard is removed, but it seems to be held in place by the same hinge assembly as the upper receiver. Frankly, they could have gone with a better design with rails built on to gas tube like galil ace.
Other than that, it only needs a better muzzle break (easily doable), ambidextrous safety (easily doable) and a bolt hold release switch (easily doable).
Has anyone ever had a chance to review Modified AK-47 shown above .
How much Weight this Kit Increases or Decreases ?
Compared to Regular AK-47 what all changes dose this kit bring ?
Which units of IA are getting equipped ?
Who is doing these Modifications (DRDO + 3rd Party or DRDO with TOT from some foreign vendor ) ?
Is it any good , what do our Guys handling these guns have to say about this ?
That is not Kit but a completely new rifle based on 1B1 but looks like AKM, The review is posted in this thread few pages back ..
Ghatak Rifles for Indo-Tibetan Border Police
Cornershot Weapon system developed by ARDE DRDO
wow ..something promising , ghatak rifle love to see in indian armed forces
Looks like AAR is not dead yet!
That's a great news!
Any source,photo or something like that ?
That is a pistol with long handle. It appeaes excessively bulky for the calibre of round it fires
FN Browning Hi Power 9mm so it looks 'stubby'.
Considering the topmost pic was taken recently, DRDO is still putting up AAR on it's exhibits stall.
They don't usually put dead or experimental projects on show in exhibition.
I would love to see the AAR with our special forces.Special weapon for special people.
Definitely I agreed with your view, it must go to the special forces but it needs refinement before its induction. Refinement and development take times.
Indian Army must order 550,000 insas mk 1c to regular troops and 300,000 ghatak rifle to RR troops operating in Jammu and Kashmir.
Please stop giving numbers like that.
People like me recommend 20 crore rifles to to be manufactured for a grand army and militia.
So, let us not get into such numbers
Okay then lets hope Indian Army order good numbers of indigenous assault rifles.
I always have question, how do you decide on these numbers???

GHATAK ASSAULT RIFLE IN CRPF:
Looks like the Main stream defense journalists and blogs are deliberately trying to keep the indigenous rifles under wraps to continue the rhetoric "INDIA CAN REACH MARS BUT CAN'T MAKE RIFLES"
