Not surprised, the cost of stuff CAA offers seems absurd, I mean the vector optic on their AK upgrade is also sold by CAA for 50 dollars extra, as Vector optics is more of a manufacturing and wholesale suppliers group as evident by their website who asked me to register to know the prices (luckily a fake account worked) which typically is asked by suppliers, and then the price was 80 dollars for the red dot shown in the TAR upgrade kit, I went rofl, and then same ended up on CAA website for 130 dollars which means CAA rebrands vector optics.

I’m afraid same might be the case with rest of their equipments and accessories which might be chinese rebranded by them as some tacticool ‘Merican small arms accessories.
Much shameful is that OFB was supposed to be doing all this, making upgrade kits and accessories. But then commies being commies.

It seems we are talking about equping our military with 90s ak103 when pakis are thinking of equiping PA with CZ bren.NOICE pakis sure are enamored with a ar18 rifle to be their mainstay.all the while we havent let go of our ak craze

Cz Bren is prone to jaming at regular intervals, it seems that they fixed minor issues with the rifle. It's much controllable in fully auto mode over ak,

KIndly share some inputs on this, Im intetested, I always wanted a infantry rifle chambered in 7.62x45,
It's been hardly 20 minutes since I heard about this cartridge for the first time :crazy:

But most probably I would have been our desperate, and obviously failed attempt to match the Czechs (7.62x45mm) and Russians (7.62x39mm) by something of our own.

CZ bren was what SCAR should have been.and the jamming part it would be earlier varients.would you think french GIGN would select a "prone to jam rifle" ? And add salt to our wound the rifle CZ made especially for us will be most likely given to pakis. just NOICE

I guess DRDO's LASER ignition concept for small arms will be similar to the above mechanism patented by Remington

If they are using substandard ammo like Wolf, that too in steel casing then they better shouldn't complain about rifle's reliability;
Steel cased ammo (and in case of ruskie one with that maroon lacquers etc) has tendency to fuck up gas systems (in worse cases it even fouls chamber with sticky carbon residues) and making it cycle faster, some of them even use low quality primers and propellants to reduce cost,

then a fact that is steel and brass contract and expand at different rates; modern day rifles are mostly designed and tested with brass cartridges, so it may fire about a magazine or two but then problems would start appearing,

it may work fine in AK because well it's AK after all but for a purpose made rifle like this one i am doubtful,

so i kinda find this video goofy at best,
as for GIGN,
it is evident from pics itself that they use good kwality brass cased ammo with their Bren 2s so i guess it works fine with it
