What carbine is that? Take a guess....


For afficionados of small arms... guess that carbine's make, calibre, bore and attachments. One Gold Star and two Brownie Points for the best assessment.

  18. Think ,it needs an extra butt for stability and to avoid muscle climb.

    ReplyDelete
  19. But Ajai, you don't know to hold it in correctly. This is the way to hold the gun. New style.

  24. You folks, I must admit, are way ahead of the curve. There's only one thing that everyone is wrong on. The MARS sight is manufactured by Alpha Design in Bangalore. They have a JV with ITL.

    Hilarious! That's called the classic South Block undergrip. Prevents the foldout butt from folding into one's butt.

    Sanket:

    I'm not pointing towards the gentleman in the suit. I'm pointing way to his left. It's the two-dimensional photo that makes it seem that way.

    Rahul

    There is nothing called the F-INSAS gun.

  27. RE Ajai

    Common Man, they are such important posters in the background. MSMC is old hat. The posters in the background have never been seen before. Pls can we have better pics or if possible you can ask for a copy of these posters to put on the blog from power be!

  28. Ajai Sir sorry for over excitement. I was referring to poster(on right side) on which Multi Caliber Individual Weapon System is written.

  33. Col. Shukla,

    In the top-right corner of the second photo, there is a poster on something called the "Multi Calibre Individual Weapon System".

    Do you have a close-up of that poster or any details about this MCIWS? To me it looks like a successor to the INSAS assault rifle with modular add-ons: the 40mm UBGL is discernible as well as some kind of thermal sight.

    it's the MSMC. Ajay sir could you please tell as to why it has not been inducted yet?
    Also is the Tavor/Zittara manufactured by the OFB?

    ReplyDelete
  35. [b]Its one of the perfectly developed but Systematically Rejected weapon's platform that would follow the same path as 100's of other platforms........Thanks to the big money involved in foriegn deals and Thanks to US VISA's to Babu's Sons and Son In Laws.......

    Jindagi me Ek baar bhi desh ke baare me socho yaar!Why does it have to be "YOU" all the time and not the NATION at least once in a life time......
    Think of it!

  38. Are you not supposed to keep both eyes open while using a reflex sight?
    Supposed to be one of its main advantage; of retaining a greater field of vision.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I want my gold star and brownie points. I would like the points to be transferable to the nearest bakery. Thank you very much.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ajai do you have the pics of the posters behind?

    Very interesting details in those!!

  43. Simranjit Singh26 July 2010 at 02:19

    That's MSMC Sir....

    Please post the details of your visit...
    Is the Army inducting those ??

    ReplyDelete
  44. Looks good, and I hope the specifications are as good as a comparable import. Just one comment: Does the grip seem odd? It seems to bend forward; this has to put a lot of strain on the operator's wrist. I hope they change this if and when this weapon hits full production.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Re Ajai

    Any possibility of high resolution pics of the background posters?

    ReplyDelete
  46. That is MSMC . I am informed that it shoots also. I am also informed that the Armed Forces are not too keen. They trust the HK series.

    ReplyDelete
