India may scrap 6.5 lakh Ak-203 rifle deal, and opt for SSS Defence's upcoming 7.62mm Ak type Rifle
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.

The Source of the news is sketchy. Unlikely to happen, we will probably end up going for some OFB-made desi bandook like TAR.

Indian Army to take 72k rifles from Indian firms that were supposed to be bought from American firm Sig Sauer
After the scrapping of second order for 72,000 Sig-716 rifles from the American firm Sig Sauer, Officials have said that the planned orders for the rifles are now going to be given to the Indian Private Arms manufacturer who have made significant developments in this field.

For example, the Indo-Israeli Joint Venture PLR systems has already started manufacturing all the variants of the Galil rifle and is currently being evaluated by the Indian Army.

Another firm SSS Defense has also presented its new 7.62 millimeters by 39 caliber rifle Ak type Assault Rifle to the Indian Army at the recently held North Tech Symposium 2022. SSS Defence has earlier revealed their P-72 family of Assault Rifles, Carbines and two Sniper rifle variants named Viper and Saber.
