yep, BFA they are.
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.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 doesn't reduce its range much. Please share your opinions.
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.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.
Or just a version of INSAS with adjustable gas block, STANAG magwell, short barrel, ambi safety selector etc would do.
It will look something like Pindad ss2v5 of Indoasia.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.Or just a version of INSAS with adjustable gas block, STANAG magwell, short barrel, ambi safety selector etc would do.
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.Did Russians saw this!!!
