Late Brig RayC had similar comments on INSAS polymer magazines and he was a participant in that fight.

Couldnt the INSAS LMG have a commando variant? Shorter barrel, box fed, folding stock, foregrip and oh, black colour :-)

Wow, using Google Translate on that thread shows what looks to be an insane amount of racist crap being spewed on Indians. An eye-opener certainly. And yet most Indians are still delusional about Russians being some kind of eternal friend (and the only trusted one).

Sorry for the OT.

Thanks. I've removed the link to that site. No point in sending more traffic there. My mistake for not translating. I was only interested in the pics and didn't bother.

That might explain the AK-103s

Short barrel would be a disaster for INSAS LMG, which would take away it's most redeeming quality, accuracy It has been known to use INSAS LMG with scope in a DMR role. Rest sounds like a thicker barrel with Insas mk1c layout.
Image
INSAS already uses box magazines, now there are dubious sources on the internet that say INSAS can accept STANAG magazines, I doubt to see how that is possible because even if magazine dimensions are similar, INSAS magazine uses rock and lock system with latches on front and rear of magazine.

Whereas STANAG magazines have notch on the left of the magazine for holding it in place. I have never had a look inside INSAS magwell, nor are there any pictures available to confirm the same.

INSAS LMG and UBGL are two small arms which are being rapidly inducted into the Army in last 5 years at the rate of around 5000-8000 each per annum.

The Russians seem to be using AK-74s. The 103s belong to Marcos.

https://twitter.com/sjha1618/status/938464207120375809 --> As far as OFB's R-2 7.62 × 51 mm assault rifle is concerned, the Army wants a prototype that can fire over 2000 rounds continuously without any stoppages. OFB says they'll be back soon.

History channel docu trailer on surgical strikes. Lots of gratuitous shots of upgraded AKs with Special Forces.

JVPCs, Ghatak AKMs and Excalibur Mk-1 (not INSAS or Mk-1C) in production. Excalibur Mk-1 comes with a short picatinny rail where dovetail rail used to be. You can tell it is not Mk-1C because of the stamped steel construction instead of milled aluminium.

Who are they producing these for? Has the army placed any orders?
