Japan SDF's new standard issue rifle Howa Type-20 on firing range, currently seems only vdo on internet (at least on youthoob)

it's been out there since two months but goddamn it youthoob search is so so fucking retarded...took a while to accidently find it

recoil and muzzle rise patterns seem similar to FN SCAR-L in 5.56 NATO, expected for a relatively heavy gun like that...i like that fire selector design on this one over SCAR's though it looks much more comfirtable-operable than that tiny one on SCARs, and of course ambidextrous bolt release...overall seems nice

3 lug bolt, ergonomic buttstock, adjustable polymer cheek piece, recoil pad with height & length adjustment and an oversized trigger guard for ease of operation with gloved hands: sounds like a recipe for a perfect shot

Hey @Johny_Baba
As we had already discussed, it's not a MRAD type aluminium receiver set-up. Just a typical action inside a "shell".

Iranians are miles ahead of us
They have been always at the forefront in technology. Though it's not rocket science but they have been very keen on building their own arms since the American ban.

As far as we are concerned we aren't behind them or anyone but the system that we have is the reason for the downfall.

Let the private sector boom here and then things will change. OFB has literally monopolised and destroyed the market..

Because they had no other options, they were in survival mode; so the results? They can service Tomcats.

We were never in this survival mindset in small arms. We always had the easy way of floating a RFI, taking kickbacks and cancelling the RFI only to issue a new one.

In case of ballistic missiles we were straight away kicked by everyone, there was no other options except introspecting; and the results? Agni, Prithvi, K-Series, Prahaar
