Sniper rifle RFP scrapped as the RFP was for rifles and ammunition. None of the bidders manufactured ammunition. Who would have thought. :roll:

Thanks. Glad you expanded topic.

CISF has adopted the JVPC. IMO JVPC is more suited for police and sentry duties. Sub compact carbines have limited application in Army where a normal carbine shooting standard ammo is required. I expect JVPC to replace large number of rifles in police role.

Thakur_B, I heard that the special forces under the police have various rifles each with different ammo. Leads to problems if they have to deploy jointly in an emergency. Every state has its own set of weapons unique to themselves.

^^ Majority of the SWAT units have standardised on SiG 550 family as a result of cross training with NSG. Notable exception are MP police Hawk and Bangalore police which have opted for Excalibur. Octopus from Hyderabad have settled on 9 mm conversion of M4. While UP and Delhi SWAT use vanilla AKM, while Mumbai Force One uses M4 and MP5.

Kerala Police buying 500 INSAS for 3.6 Crores!!!!
As per my madrassa math cost of each rifle comes to be >$1000. Also as per some discussions on the SM, the model is INSAS 1B1 with the folding butt. How blatantly people be in decision chains let themselves be ripped off.
Also for comparison 5.56 FMJ bullets are being sold at almost double the price of the global market.
