The much-awaited local production of 6.5 lakh 7.62 x 39 millimeters Russian Kalashnikov Ak-203 Assault Rifles was scheduled to begin production in March 2022.

But now, IgMp has learned that the officials associated with the project have pointed out that this long-delayed deal could be postponed further or could be scrapped altogether at any time.

On the other hand, Indian Private Sector firm SSS Defense is all set to unveil a new 7.62 x 39 millimeters rifle which is a modification of the company's existing P-72 Rapid Engagement Combat Rifle (RECR) and will be an improvement over the Russian Kalashnikov rifles and its derivatives such as the Ak-203.

Recently SSS Defense bagged the contract to modify Indian Army Ak-47 variants and they have already delivered the modifications kits to the Indian Army. Indian Army is said to have been impressed with the quality of modification kits delivered by the firm.

Repeated delays in price negotiations and technology transfer agreements with the Russians over Ak-203 may force MoD and the Indian Army to go for indigenous firm SSS Defense made upcoming Ak type 7.62mm Assault Rifle.

I think Russia has given us the license to make these as well
That's what Ak deal is..

We don't need license for AK or AR 15/18 based rifle platform.

Only the external furniture is something we need to change a bit here and there to look different that's it.

Everything else is just blah blah..

Problem is we couldn't even copy them as they were ..

Will never happen.

I can give many reasons :
  • Amethi - OFB Factory Ready
  • Russian Oil Deals
  • Agniveer Standard Issue
  • Amethi - UP - Yogi Political Cost
