The indigenously developed 7.62mm x 51mm assault
rifle has met the expectations of the project management team, comprising representatives
from the Indian Army and defence agencies, in round one of its trials. The team found the rifle satisfactory on all
aspects, barring one adjustment that it has sought before the next round of trials. P
K Agarwal, additional general manager of Rifle Factory Ishapore (RFI), confirmed that the
trial was complete. The RFI team is gearing up to make the adjustment
before offering the rifle for the next round of trials at the Infantry School, Mhow (MP),
which is the testing agency of the Indian Army.
