  1. Delay in purchase: Faced with a huge delay in acquiring world-class rifles for its soldiers, the Army is now reluctantly planning to induct the indigenously developed Excalibur
  2. It had earlier rejected the Excalibur
  3. Excalibur is an upgraded version of the trouble-prone INSAS (Indian National Small Arms System) inducted in the mid-1990s
  4. It is built by the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB)
