OFB was a production agency till very recently. OFB can only copy something which is available to them. In early 90s,at the start of the J&K terrorism, huge influx of AKMs happened many of which was transferred from Afghanisthan. The weapons captured by IA led to the developement of MRF-91.MRF-91 here is a stamped sheet receiver-ed rifle, most likely a copy of AKM(this one seems copy of S-version, underfolding buttstock) and ones shown by Kunal Dada was milled recever,Type-3 pattern AK, most probably a Bulgarian one i believe because well they are one of the remaining guys out who still produce milled receiver AKs with some 'modernisation' to give AK-74 style furniture-looks etc.
In the early 90s, with the arrival of Bulgarian AKs, that design was available to them. So OFB came up with A-7. Now Gen. kalashnikov should have threatened the Bulgarians instead of us, for IPR infringements.
