Regardinf the recalibration I too was surprised but then if y...

Originally posted by shiv: Sachin - there have been many complaints about the INSAS - and I suppose sorting out such glitches is part of the development process of a weapon.

Re: Understanding INSAS

Hi All, the LMG version of the SA-80 which the Brits have is designated as the Squad Support Weapon. I believe they also have another LMG which has the barrel change capability. Correct me if I am wrong. This thing about killing power of the INSAS and the belt fed rounds discussion is old hat. I am ...
