    @Kunal Biswas Why do we not use drum mags for INSAS LMG? I have a drum mag design of 100 rounds that is half the size of a 100 round C-Mag which takes 30 sec to load up.

    INSAS is very strictly as per GSQR, So you see everything on INSAS as per GSQR, In IA LMG was always meant for Magazine where as need for GPMG only came after Kargil War, Where 30rnd mag was found insufficient for continues suppressive fire..

    May be if someone make a new GSQR keeping suppressive fire in mind may think of it..

    Isn't this too bulky to be used by infantry?

    each soldier carry 100 bullet and INSAS, so this is not much weight. Plus 30 round magazine means only 5 magazine and this single drum will do the trick.

    Imagine walking 20 miles on patrol with a 4kg (?) INSAS with a 2kg 150 round drum mag attached to it...

    Anyway, would we need loaders at base?

    para commandos run 40 km with 40 kg weight every day. So squad of 11 people two guys have INSAS LMG wont be much.

    Its shorter in length compare to a 30rnd Mag of AR-15 / INSAS LMG,

    Size of the Magazine and Weight are primary concern, A solution balanced between these two factor may be a good choice..

    A very neutral view, I wish it also have added the rifle twist ratio and should have put image of new improved INSAS 1B1..

    Thanks for sharing..

    What is the difference between that and the new one. Other than the fact it's black?

    Do you have any article, etc. detailing the differences?

    The build looks the same. Only difference is the coloring.
