> You do realize that literally no other country that makes it’s own small arms has to deal with that right? The fact that you can rationalize your way out of it is hilarious though.

Literally? Okay, let’s see.

“Beginning intensely in 1966, soldiers and Marines complained of the weapon’s terrifying tendency to jam mid-fight. What’s more, the jamming was often one of the worst sorts: a phenomenon known as “failure to extract,” which meant that a spent cartridge case remained lodged in the chamber after a bullet flew out the muzzle.”

Similar problems that the INSAS faced. Those problems don’t go away without rework. Where do these rifles stand today, after those problems have been licked?

>Again, anecdotal evidence.

Borne out by published material too. For instance…

““Both are very accurate for hitting targets,” said Capt. Upendre Tilotia, 13th platoon commander, Arjun Co., 4th Rajput.”

>the AKM is plenty accurate

Depending on who manufactured it, sure. You get one manufactured at Valmet and it will be as slick as they come. The made-in-Russia ones aren’t too bad either. The Hungarian and Romanian ones that the Army acquired right after the USSR collapsed were built to very wide tolerances and had shit accuracy. They did live up to the “throw it in the sewers, leave it festering of a year, and it will still fire reliably” hype though.

>Just because all your country has is 40 year old rifles that have never had a barrel replace or a trigger re-timed…

Coming someone who whines about “anecdotal evidence”, that’s rich.

>It’s used infrequently in the sense that INSAS will rarely see abusive service since India has some serious problems with logistics and training

It’s a standard-issue rifle. It sees service that’s as abusive as it would in any professional army.

>India has some serious problems with logistics and training

Yes, yes.
