modern AK rifles have 90° gas block because the 45° one was a stress point and used to deteriorate faster.
Not entirely true.45° gas block dont make any issue for 7.62x39 ammo, but when the same is used for 5.45x39 it causes the above said issue.Where as 90° works fine for both calibers.So just to save cost all those nations making both 7.62 and 5.45 is making only 90° ones to reduce cost.OFB Trichy just followed the suit.

at the same time, INSAS is also the same rifle that won us the kargil.. i do not know why nepalis lost against maoists but INSAS is not the reason.

INSAS has its own problem. i.E the design is outdated. but it is not a bad rifle. since coming from texas, i know lot of firearms and i own guns, lots of guns.. and i don't mind picking up insas if i have to.
Insas didnt won us Kargil war.There were lot of issues like gun firing in full auto instead of 3 round burst, mags cracking, jamming etc reported during Kargil.Thats why many units wanted their SLRs back then instead of Insas.The same issues were reported by Nepalese too.
