@Marliii @Hariharan_kalarikkal remember I said I’ve never seen Israeli soldiers with Arad and only M4A1s, here is one video where they show IWI Arad. It is a new gun so maybe inducted in big numbers later.

And we still stuck with a carbine deal for years

The upper reciever is from an Oregon based company called Noveske.

The day our operators get such degree of freedom in their choice of equipment is the day some of us can rest peacefully 😂

Hope our army get some ar15s and doesn't go for crappy ak with side folder for carbine
I am up for AK-15 or AK-19 as the best infantry rifle for Indian Army, AK-203 plus the fact our so called AK-203 which we’ll get will have no finger tab, rail on upper handguard and will be a fixed foldable buttstock. So this is BS.

I feel there has been serious corruption here, AK-203 wasn’t even participated in the tender and was selected out of nowhere without testing and deal sanctioned? Wtf?

Ak203 got selected because of the two words in front of them ak army thinks ak are all reliable super rifles so no selection needed for them.army has asked indian manufacturerers who got issued carbine RFI to state that if their weapon is in service with any paramilitary or NSG. That seems odd

Basically ak103m with few nicks here and there, I would be happiest person if the deal was scrapped ASAP

(((((Under the table deals)))))
All that money saved from watering down the AK203 and Shaving off it's muscles is going into multiple pockets
Some say metallurgy is the reason, to them I say bullshit, the AK12 adopted by russies show significant wear and tear that they had to switch interim to their ak74m until it was addressed
Even some of Chop shop gunsmiths have better metallurgy

My biggest scare is the guys who are gonna make the ak203 here OFB even under supervision they can fuck thing up pretty quickly
