Interview with a sss representative shed some light on their rifle specifications,interesting

Some key takeaways from his interview,
  • They used button cut barrel for .338 saber and hammer forged barrel for their assault rifles
  • Parts were nitrided(I guess barrels too nitrided)
  • His rifles were tested out in various ranges in murica.
  • He added that they are Building a range in India which can simulate desi weather conditions.
  • According to him,SSS Rifles are currently undergoing trials with" para,NSG and with other divisions(?)"(post 6minute mark)

I really wish para SF and NSG decide to atleast work with them to improve it and adopt it down the line. That is the key. It's NEVER going to meet their requirements off the bat since it's their first attempt. I think they should hire an ex IA sniper as consultant to iron out the kinks. BTW this question should have been asked by DDR , they missed it

Indian army may buy it if its sold us Russian or American weapon. SSS defence should open an officie in Russ/US and offer it. Import tag is more important than anything. Offocurse kickbacks

Yup. Never will they ever say we are working with so and so to induct it ! No positive mindset at all (possibly due to experience of junk OFB maal). It's always trials and trails....

Anchor also took a pot shot at OFB Ammunitions.
Absolute state of OFB. Can't wait for private Firms to start manufacturing ammunition. :rofl:

To meet the growing demand for face shields, Bengaluru-based defence startup has come up with a low-cost face shield. SSS Defence and its parent company – SSS Springs – have manufactured this face shield ‘KAVAS’ to provide protection from COVID-19 in the middle of the Coronavirus lockdown period.

“KAVAS – the `Grab to go’ Face Shields were designed to serve a simple function — to provide an affordable and convenient-to-use product that offers protection against splash and splatter of fluid-borne pathogens,” Raaj Nair, VP, International Business, SSS Defence tells Financial Express Online.

“It is made of hi-grade OHP transparent sheet, custom made rivets and elastic. The visor can be cleaned with sanitizing solutions and re-used with limited washes,” Nair explains.

According to him, the KAVAS face shield has been designed for procedures and environments where risks of exposure to blood and/or bodily fluids through splashing is possible. “The thought of doing usefully productive work in view of total lockdown came as the work in the Arms and Ammo Factory came to a standstill due to the lockdown.”

The face shields use a headband designed to maximize airflow to prevent fogging and maintain high visibility. It can also be worn over prescription eyewear and face masks, an attribute that is a “must-have” for healthcare and industrial use.

This face shield is being used by Karnataka Police, doctors, health workers, and government offices, and at various hospitals including Apollo, Columbia Asia, Ramaiah Hospitals in Bangalore, Association of Surgeons of India (Delhi Chapter), and Fortis Hospital in New Delhi.

“So far we have supplied thousands of these shields and we are getting more and more orders. This started as a CSR activity but due to a large number of requests, we decided to manufacture and distribute pan-India. The company is ready to export also,” he adds.

Soon, SSS Defence/SSS Springs will be supplying more than 500,000 pieces to various Indian Army, Military and private hospitals, military and police units, etc. in Central and North India.

“For Indian Armed Forces, Paramilitary and Police, government and private hospitals, the cost of a single shield is Rs 65 (+18% GST) per piece, for a minimum order of 1000 units. Transportation would be as per the actual cost. Presently, we are supplying through Bluedart Air Freight since it is the only operational service amidst the lockdown,” he adds.

The rivets used to make the shields have been supplied by me via their registered vendor.
