Yes , cocking handle like AK can be more helpful .Media reports (ironically, even that from DRDO) on range are based on max. effective range using iron sights.
Vz.58 (reportedly) has range of 800m because it's sights allow adjustments up to that range.
We can easily achieve a point target range of ~600m with our current ammunition.
MCIWS/ INSAS etc have less (reported) effective range because our iron sight metering is kept only up to 500m/400m. I would think good iron sights with adjustments up to 700m should do the trick.
I would also like to bring back the charging handle to the side; I was watching a video where shooters preferred the side charger on SCARs/AKs because it allows the weapon to be cocked without the need to bring the it down (i.e. while keeping it aimed).
It is simple to make , not require any extra space on gun , you can aim while cocking .
