The Pindad SS2 (SS being short for Senapan Serbu, which means "assault rifle" in the Indonesian language) is an Indonesian made assault rifle, created to replace the aging Pindad SS1s already in service with Indonesian police and military forces.
Design Details Edit
The SS2 is based off its predecessor, the SS1, which is a licensed version of the FN FNC. The SS2 has a two part upper/lower receiver construction; both receiver components are made from aluminum alloy, connected to one another with the use of two cross-pins. The front handguard is that of a ribbed design, with ventilation holes, this design allows for finer cooling in the case that sustained automatic fire is preformed. The front sight is similar to that of a standard Kalashnikov rifle, while the rear sights attached to the removable carry handle are diopter-type style.
