    Afaik, any new weapon initiation and training, particularly rifles begins with iron sights. Simulators if available are also made use of in training centers. Scope comes in later.

    I can't see the gas adjuster on any of the SiG 716's posted on Shiv's blog. They are the DI version, not the G2 Patrol. As these SiG's are modeled on the AR platform, adapting to M-4 or similar AR platform would be a lot easier.

    Let me see how many are in a state to fight after a short burst from an AK or SiG .. Level III/IV notwithstanding.

    Metal and alloys too. Components procurement are outsourced. Many times, material supplied is different from samples shown. Sometimes, they look so good that they simply go to the assembly line after a mere manual inspection. Once, there was incidence of firing pin breakage and damage witnessed...

    Can't figure out but are those assault rifle slings ? Pair them with assault rifle slings and the rifles become an extension of the body. Much needed. Helps reduce fatigue and improves reaction time. Ah, SiG has a video on slings -

    It was pure politics - From picking the Russian weapon, to choosing the location (Amethi) to announcing a joint venture with OFB. Objective had nothing to do with equipping forces with the right weapon but to show 'development' in their rival's constituency besides trying to push UP into the...

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    Poor CAPF's were made to cough up funds for procuring JVPC. Hope they are not rusting in the "koth' while the forces figure out a use case for them. It is a DAMN good weapon but would love to see how it gets used. The retractable stock is likely undergo a mutation(murmurs). Lacklustre...

    Hopefully the furniture can be reused while building easy chairs for the retired OFB staff.

    Are all the SiG 716 G2 Patrol we ordered semi-auto or are we sneaking in a few with full auto too just to give some firepower support to the LMGs? Doubt they will equip everyone with the G2. So there's definitely room for 7.62x39 and a 5.56x45. Let's see what we eventually go for.

    Indian Army SIG Sauer 716 assault rifle.

    The SIG MCX is a pretty good weapon. Maybe with a wink and a nod, they can be cajoled to partner with a local heavyweight and set up a factory here. Will help in increased sales as Air Force, Navy, Paramilitary and CAPFs decide to go in for better firepower. Depends on how GoI and MoD take...
