@Johny_Baba and others, any idea does the ARDE 5.56X45MM Carbine have an ambidextrous safety? I know the Amogh Carbine has this feature. Couldn’t find much more reliable info on this. The most in depth article/info regarding this gun I could find was from Kalashnikov’s rep Vladimir Onokoys article on TFB, but even he doesn’t mention anything about this.
And if Alpha Defense is right regarding ARDE hunting for a private partner to manufacture the gun is true, it could have a future atleast for state police forces or CAPFs and maybe a modernised version later for the Army.

The answer is yes, if you trust me then i cofirm that it can be made ambidextrous by affixing a selector piece upon this cross-pin protuding out at right side here,

in fact they even made OFB R-2 rifle in similar fasion to provide 'on demand' ambidextrousity to fire selector

Thanks, atleast someone had the brains to atleast leave a provision for it in ARDE.

mods @ezsasa @ALBY @LurkerBaba @Kunal Biswas dada and all,

wanted to ask this before going ahead,
would a thread on 3-D printed firearms-weaponry be accepted here ? Asking since i feel posting-sharing much info regd it would be a little dangerous or even involving legal things, though in this age and time every such info is available on internet at some clicks so yeah...

Can a fully capable firearm that wont explode on the users face can be made by 3D printers? I have seen suppressors in youtube that are very much capable according to them just like their non printed counterparts.

well i've seen some excellant examples that are just surprising,
but majority of them involve some core original (or reproduced) metal parts enclosed in 3-d printed receivers,
or they simply gather essential parts (barrel, bolt carrier, recoil spring) and remaining ones they made their own to make their own "plastic" version of original firearm,
and believe me some of the idea they have are so mind blowing...
for example, identify this, it is a 3-d printed shell of an actual firearm

apart from this they also make their own attachments to be affixed on actual firearms like their own sights, carrying handles and so.

Also I forgot to ask yesterday…any idea about the barrel length of the ARDE 5.56x45 CQB carbine as it’s not given anywhere. Look at the range given of 200-300m I’m assuming it’s about 10-12 inches?

Can it be made?
Yes, not a big deal

But what you're pointing as "Mount to fix selector piece on right side" is probably something way more anticlimactic.

It may actually be a...ahem...ahem...rivet.

On the inner side it's simply riveted on the receiver. On the the other side it protrude like a stud. If you look closely then the distance between that protrusion and a round hole in the stock is same from the hinge.

That hole in stock contains a bent wire clip, and the head of that stud us hemispherical. So when the stock is folded it's retained by that pin and that bent wire.
That's it
