    can someone clarify if its ak-103 or ak-103m? i hope they r going for ak-103m.

  2. 2


    So are we going for the basic AK-103 and not the newer AK-103m. If that’s the case then it’s a bad choice from future perspective even if price is low.

    The overall picture for Rifle requirements is missing. India has armed forces (infantry , special forces, RR) , central police forces (BSF, coast guard, CRPF, CISF, BSF…) and state police forces requiring millions of assault rifles. Now we have
    1. 7.62 x 51 mm AR 15 based battle rifle : STIG seur 716 shortlisted. For regular infantry
    2. 5.56 x 45 mm AR 15 based carbine : Caracal 816 shortlisted . For close Quarter combat.
    Both above need common training programs.

    3. 7.62 x 39 mm Klashinkov based assault rifle : AK 103 shortlisted . For anti insurgency operations.

    This standardization is good and we need to endure all our forces are equipped with one of them only to reduce costs by make in India , improve logistics, improve training since we have only two families of rifles.

    I hope if at all OFB is continuing to design a rifle they base it on open source design of AR 15 and not copy from Everywhere like in has been disaster. I also hope the OFB made round is as lethal as the ones in US or Russia.

    Suggest you write an article on why of these selections.

    no weapon can beat the Israeli TAVOR 7 rifle which has a better range ,shorter in length and lighter in weight and better lethality
