Pakistan has been tasting the Indian INSAS rifle first in Baluchistan in the hands of Baluch insergents and then with the Mircenries who call them selves Pakhtun Nationalists and pose as TALIBAN but are working for MOSAD/RAW/C.I.A.

First In Bajur then Swat now in Waziristan.The insurgency was faceless paid for by the enimies of Pakistan has been crushed effictivly.

Now for the INSAS Rifle

Pakistanis who have used this rifle or have kept it as a war trophy are badly pissed of because of its very poor quality.

It is rated below the Soviet/Chinese S.K.S the 7.62 x39 Semi automatic rifle.

I do not under stand what purpose or result this rifle will produce for OMAN.

I think insas is really a good rifle.Although it is developed from AK-47 but with many differences.In the earlier version there are some problems but now these all problems were fixed.The insas is really a good deal for the oman.The insas is cheap, accurate and easy maintenance made it more worthy.
