    The guy in one of his tweets said that the abomination is likely to be inducted (or should i say shoved down the army's throat by the idiotic babu-OFB nexus).

    Is it going to happen? I hope it doesn't and the army gets a proper 21st century carbine from a private manufacturer.
    Another question, why is the OFB allowed to manufacture anything after the mess they made of the INSAS?

    Caracal 816 Carbine variant.

    Possible idea for a AK 203 series carbine.

    And finally OFB's INSAS 1C carbine variant! :shock:

    J&K police to procure 4,000 weapon safety systems to curb gun-snatching incidents

    Concerned over a spurt in the incidents of weapon-snatching by militants, the Jammu and Kashmir Police will procure 4,000 weapon safety systems known as Smart Electronic Trigger Lock Weapon Tracking System (SETLWTS) to deal with the menace.

    Such devices should also be compatible with fire arms and could be removed only by the biometrics of authorised users. Any forcible removal will damage the whole trigger mechanism system.

    The system also carries finger and palm print scanners fitted in the grip to operate trigger locks, the police official said.

    Old news. The deal is stuck because of pricing issues. The Sig 716 G2 (7.62x51) has less cost than the CAR 816 (5.56x45)!

    INSAS 1C is disliked by the army. They rejected it twice.

    Only something like above has a slight chance and then the whole receiver has to be machine milled to the quality of an AK 103/203, forget AR 15 level production quality.

    Rejected the JVPC because it is 5.56x30mm calibre. IA requirement is for 5.56x45mm carbines.

    OFB supplied about 20,000 Excalibur rifles various states of Indian police force. I am disappointed that Indian army rejected even improved variant Insas mk 1c going for foreign carbines. Now procurement of foreign carbines got stuck and cancelled. I hope now Indian army will select and buy Insas mk 1c carbines. Indian govt should ban imported weapons and buy our own weapons.
