    Looks like a simplified version of Tavor 21.

    Don't tell me they put the fire selector way out back a la sa80.

    Point target 700m...... that's a stretch.

    It's too early to announce that it's official new main assault rifle for the ROK Armed Forces.

    No official said it's going to be the next-generation main assault rifle unless the ROK Agency for Defense Development puts it as long-term research project.

    So, it's still in 'rumor.'

    As seen on many bullpup design rifles, this one will also be a pain in the eye if the situation requires you to shoot left shoulder, or if you are left-shooting anyway.

    The front part of the rifle looks sort of a like an AK-47 design.

    Reminded me of a SAR-21... seems as if the south east Asian armies weapons are converging. But hey, why import when you can make your own right?

    Looks like a mix of a AK and Tavor.

    I cannot understand the use of the 3-rounds burst option in the 5,56-mm XK-8 (DAR-21) assault rifle apart from locating the selector in so unergonomic place. By the way - the gas port looks very AK-like

    We have been using AK style since long time ago.
    If there's chance to see K-2 Rifle, u might think it is a variation of M-16.
    However, it's only the outlook; the inside is actually the variation of AK-47
