    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).

    Hello Guys,
    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 ?

    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.

    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.

    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
