Kits are only useful for moding existing StuffEven more costlier, for example each FAB Defense upgrade kit costs as much as a rifle would, hence doubling the price.
Still could have been something else, an ak-15 minus 2 round burst. Adjustable stock is basic necessity these days imho.The logics
- A "compensation" to the Russians for Rafale, Scorpene, SIG 716, MICA, ASRAAM, NASAMS, Negev and so on.
- To use "दुनिया की सबसे दमदार एसॉल्ट राइफल" as a leverage in election in Amethi.
What's your thoughts on if had not gone for sig and instead taken deep modernisation of insas(like l85 modernisation program) we could have saved a lot of money, maybe even bought enough optics with that money.Saving money is the only necessity in MOD's honest opinion.
- INSAS (family) has matured enough to outperform any stock Klashnikov; including AK-12. We've ARDE carbine.What's your thoughts on if had not gone for sig and instead taken deep modernisation of insas(like l85 modernisation program) we could have saved a lot of money, maybe even bought enough optics with that money.
Kyle Rittenhouse narrating events happened at Kenosha that day, here mentioning how he used Forward Assist of his AR to (push the bolt carrier forward and) close ejection port etc which later was fired on certain antifa supporters...
Case in point, forward assist feature potentially saved his life,
while Stoner himself and USAF etc were not so supportive towards putting this feature on M16, it seems that having it is still better than being sitting duck when situation arises...
I personally believe choosing non-reciprocating charging handle for INSAS was kind of a mistake, sure it helped with 'training' as previous 1A SLR had same charging handle albeit at slightly different location and gave them a chance to seal up that rifle by eliminating charging handle slot that would have been there in case they followed simple AK design, but they also removed direct forward assist that an AK style charging handle would have provided, or some other non-reciprocating design like AUG A1 had that button on charging handle to grab extension rod (here it would be gas piston itself) while pulling it back//pushing it forward to make it act as forward assist...at least some jams that INSAS suffered could have been solved this way and god knows if some lives could also have been saved or what not...
also, looking at rifles tested by the Army back then,
>AUG - had indirect forward assist feature with that button on non-reciprocating charging handle
View attachment 121650
>H&K 33 - no forward assist but bolt carrier had these serration like cuts near bolt face so 'in theory' an operator could push it manually forwad using his thumb
View attachment 121651
View attachment 121659
>H&K G41 - had AR style forward assist button on receiver with bolt carrier having cuts for it
View attachment 121652
View attachment 121657
>Stg-940 - was practically an AK what else to say, just slam on its charging handle
View attachment 121654
>Galil (?, saying ecause Rifle Room of Ishapore had it there so i guess it was tested out at one point ?) - same as above
View attachment 121655
>SIG-550 (again, RFI rifle room had it there so...) - same as above
View attachment 121656
almost all of them had one way or other to manually force bolt carrier forward in case it is not in battery, but somehow INSAS was not given it, "just charge the rifle two-three times" doesn't always work...
RIP Trichy Assault Rifle.- INSAS (family) has matured enough to outperform any stock Klashnikov; including AK-12. We've ARDE carbine.
- If 7.62x39mm was our only priority then we already have Trichy Assault Rifle. Just add few more bits to improve ergonomics and you're good to go.
- If we have no issues with Quasi-DI guns (coz we've already inducted SIG 716) then there are n number of medium sized US companies which make way better AR-15s than any AK-12 and that too at a very low cost.
Regd forward assist design on the AR, an important thing he missed to explain is,
