    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    Leave then, then we were broke. We still don't have any solid vision of what to do. 7.62x39mm is a very good example.

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    So apparently the recoil of 716i is too much? No issue, it's cakewalk to rectify. Induct H&K PSG-1 Though for the same weight of a PSG-1 you can lug two 716i. But of course recoil reduction...

    Just be thankful, that ARs don't come wrapped.

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    Okay seriously, why the heck is everyone replying with the same thing!? "They may be tall, but we are strong" So among all the d*ck-measuring contests, now we'll do this? It was all about perspective. If THE soldier (one among 1.4 million) is of shorter built then the rifle will obviously seem...

    Indeed And it's very common for soldiers to remove the eyepiece or poke holes in them. The old Soviet eyepieces are notorious for there suction.

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    I'm sorry mate but to what you are referring to is actually SIG SAUER 716. A short-stroke piston operated AR-10. What we acquired is SIG SAUER 716i. The pseudo direct-impingement version of the aforementioned. Weight of 716i, 3.85kg. Weight of INSAS, 4kg.

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    Well that precisely was what I tried to convey. Only seeing (insert tall) YouTubers and how even a M2 can be made "wieldy" if the guy is big. As for the technique part, it's more of a lack of willpower than budget. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, mentality.

    Ok, totally agreeing with you on the science part. But, what about seeing Hickok45 shoot a gun?

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    May be this will make things bit clear. First and foremost, we are smol. It's a fact and you can't do much. As you must be accustomed to see Murican YouTubers shooting guns, it's hard to comprehend the same gun with someone having our physique. Second, if our Tier 1 and 2 operators are...

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    Ummn.....what!?? An AR pattern rifle is probably the most compact and lightest 7.62 rifle you can get.

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    I was just guesstimating mate; or may be that's what I wanted to see :drool: The only two things known about that tender is "...telescopic..." and "12,000". That's it. It could be anything from ACOGs to Schmidt & Bender. Indeed they are. But we don't have much. Compared to all the RDS we have...

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    Nahi hai bhai. How long will this same question come up? 1. There was a tender for appropriate LPVO scope for these rifles. But there is no update on that. It's most probably dead. 2. We have a good number of holographic sights, but there is no point of a holographic sight on this calibre and...

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    It's not a "new" weapon. Except few controls it's same as Kalash, INSAS and FAL for an average joe. A soldier's training starts with iron sights so that he has basic idea of factors like windage, elevation and lead. And it also prepares him for worst case scenarios. But unfortunately here even...

    We don't follow that "dedicated supplier" route. For each requirement new tenders are issued. Given the level of corruption we have in defence acquisitions, this will simply mean that everything will become unquestionable.

    Slings. So that's the only gripe you have. Ok. Though this pic is quite old, but it clearly shows how things work here.

    It's totally up to that individual soldier which style of shooting he employs.
