But the .338 sniper looks genuinely good even in its original Bhagwa stock! I have seen many civilian rifles online and it matches their quality at least in pictures!
Actually even with wooden furniture if they use dark brown paint like original FN FAL it will look better and will be much sturdier than the cheap polymer they might be using.

Though I hope it's of good quality.

'standard issue' rifle of Indian Army...till 1950= 303 bolt action rifle
1950s to 1980s= SLR
1980s to present day= Insas

Insas was our first indigenous attempt for a modern assault rifle...

it was a good rifle with a lot of potential to become near perfect if MOD, IA, OFB and DRDO worked together to iron out problems version by versions

BUT...IA wants fancy stuff from FOREN...OFB/DRDO labs are plagued by communist unions who dont want to become productive and responsible for quality control...MOD babus want kickbacks with FOREN vendors...

in the end INSAS is blamed for all this...poor gun

.303 bolt action rifle was standard issue till 1962.
SLR from 1963-1997.
Insas from 1997-2019 (till Sigs arrived).

Informal issue: Aks since early 90s.

story of British Army's attempt to indigenously replace 7.62 SLR with Enfield L85A1 5.56
sounds similar to reputation thrusted on INSAS

no wonder our babus are exact same but zombies left behind by british babus

the problem was the people who were in charge of making the gun had never even fired a gun before. Instead of getting avid shooters and firearms experts to design the gun they just brought in novice engineers.

The british actually hired HK as consultants and ended up fixing the SA80. We didn't fix the INSAS, or atleast did not give a serious attempt at fixing it,

INSAS firing Porn...

show me a better video of INSAS firing with shells flying freely beautifully and not a boring test range clip where shells are caught by a stupid can or hat by instructors...

wish these rifles are exported to US youtubers who will give us more good videos and analysis of this weapon...

Quality Shooting photography or videography are lacking in India, we haven't seen insas shooting in various shooting positions like prone, sitting, kneeling and standing. We haven't seen three round burst of insas or automatic firing of its other version. Oem should exhibit these kind of abilities but no one can be blame except themselves.
