Wish we could arm all the men with sig 716
We can but there is no need ...

Don't the guns have flip up sights, then why this?
Yes Sig provides flip up iron sights but weren't part of original deal and were paid separately for that I guess.

So we‘re paying more than ₹10,000 for rear iron sights, lmao, lmao, lmaooooo 😭.
So the total cost turn out to be 1115 dollars ....

Caracal was definitely offering us a much better deal.

What did that tweet say, looks like it is deleted? I'm sure first batch also came with iron sights, if they are having issues with pricing for second batch (shouldn't it be the same as first batch?), shows how this "emergency" acquisition will bite us in the arse in the long term.
Now that you have multiple established companies forming JVs + indian private companies with their own designs, might as well throw it open for a Make in India tender.

Yes, enemy on the door, if tomorrow a war starts a sizable (majority maybe) will be using INSAS which showed problems even in Kargil, but..........
Dont forget, winter trials, summer trials, monsoon trials, high altitude trials, deep water trials , pak based tangos trials , local tangos trials and now Taliban trials,
