yep, BFA they are.

Blank Firing Adapter for 5.45x39mm AK rifles

This is basically entry of artificial intelligence for Sniping/Shooting.

Did Israel adopted it in mass or we will be the one
It has cleared trials with SOCOM and is awaiting orders. A few Israeli units have adopted it. We will be the third customer.

How good are Carbine Ak variants like Ak104/102 when compared with 10 or 12" Ar-15 variants in that role? Have been seeing lots of Ak-104s in 7.62 with FSB guys rather than full length Ak103s. Also the guy from Rifle dynamics USA in his video prefers SBRs in 7.62 and iirc says it doesnt reduce its range much. Please share your opinions.

A 10" barrel AK in 7.62mm wont have a range of more than 100m. And within its effective range, it would not be suitable for CQB as it would overpenetrate. Tricked out AK-105s in 5.45mm are a favourite of Spetsnaz units throughout the services. With 14" barrels. Any lower barrel length will affect reliability as you have to shorten the gas block significantly. And reduce the already short dwell time of the bullet, which means range and accuracy will decrease further. An AR-15 with an 10.5"/11.5" barrel would be better as it would give the bullet sufficient dwell time due to its structure and be lighter and more compact. Range would be around 200m.

OFB Trichy developed TAR carbine is stated to have a range of upto 200 m and weight 2.9 kg. It is currently under trials. If succesfully passed it can do a good job as a SBR for CAPFs and Army.

I'd have liked a 5.56mm version of this with a birdcage style flash hider, full length handguard and ACE 32 style magwell to accept STANAG mags. Much more modular.

Or just a version of INSAS with adjustable gas block, STANAG magwell, short barrel, ambi safety selector etc would do.

Aactually TAR carbine was developed by OFT based on the request of CAPFs, who are reportedly happy with the performance of recently inducted TAR assault rifles

The adjustable gas block was implemented on Insas MK1C, which passed the army trials in 2015. It was stated to be the future primary assault rifle of IA. However, it was passed over due to the change in caliber requirement to 7.62*51 mm.

Rumour has it that the new DRDO/OFB carbine displayed in Defence expo 2020 is internally same as Insas MK1C. It also has shorter barrel, though the length couldn't be ascertained based on the pictures.
Amidextrous fire selector : probably not

Did Russians saw this!!!
Actually OFT has cloned this based on Arsenal's version of Krinkov. There are many AK-74SU Krinkov style guns/pistols/SBRs in USA civilian market. Many companies come up with such designs. Recently IWI launched Galil pistols in US market.

For Russian's to claim IPR, they must do so to Bulgarian's than us.
