Americans use CSASS, we should also, its a good rifle.We have a shortage of DMR rifles. The Dragunovs are at most 7000-8000 no. which IA wants to modernize. SSS Defence has come up with a upgrade package. However, still they are low in number. I feel that retired SLRs can be given a fresh lease of life by a upgrade package. There are more than a million+ no. manufactured by OFB.. The SLR is a reliable and accurate weapon system which can shoot upto a distance of 800 m(effectively) (with scope). It can serve as a good DMR option. Can serve both Army and CAPF as a low cost option.
Below is an upgraded FN FAL from DS Arms (USA). May be SSS defence can come up with something similar.
