Talking Peruvian FAD

See it HERE, HERE and HERE.

The FAD ("Fusýl AutomÓtico Doble", or "Dual Automatic Rifle" as it is intended to be fired either from the right or left shoulder and to be readily coupable with a single-shot "Pump-Action" 40mm grenade launcher) is the new bull-pup assault rifle being developed by engineer Salom˛n Braga Lozo at the Callao Plant (formerly CEFAR, "Centro de Fabricacci˛n de Armas", or "Firearms Manufacturing Center") of SIMA ("Serviccios Industriales de Marina, "Navy Manufacturing Services") in Peru.

Not much to say, except that, HEY, THAT'S THE DOWNWARD-EJECTING CASE DEFLECTOR I HAVE BEEN THINKING OF!!

Default And It's About Time !

Spent cases ejecting downward is just common sense. I can't count how many times my buddies spent brass has ended up in my uniform and burning the hell out of my neck or back during live fire excersises.

Nope, it is not. Just a model.

It's merely a rough prototype to test feasibility, I suppose. My guess is that Peru would rather want it less crude and with plastic housing (see the close-up pictures, you'll find that most of that thing is made out of heavy, outdated stampings...).

The handguard still looks under development as a 'Pump Action' launcher is to be installed, It will probably be an advanced M203/GP30?.

I don't think it will be anything "advanced". It will most probably be like the quick attach/detach grenade launcher prototyped by the Croatians for the VHS rifle: a simple single-action smoothbore forward-opening tube like their previous RGB-1, maybe having a folding trigger since it may have no trigger guard (posing risks of accidental discharges should it snag on a soldier's equipment or something).
