If u Want to know/learn about small arms then watch 9 hole review. Here they are reviewing AK 103 with Vladimir Onokoy. I think it also includes footage and references from its trials in Pakistan.

Lighter Version of the National Infantry Rifle MPT-76 Ready for Duty

The lightened version of the MPT-76 National Infantry Rifle, which continues to be developed with the Turkish Armed Forces feedback, has become ready for the use of security forces.
February 07, 2021


President of Defense Industries İsmail Demir announced on his official social media account that the qualification of the lighter version of the National Infantry Rifle, MPT-76-MH, has been completed. "We continue our efforts to ensure that our security forces use their equipment more effectively in the field. Designed by MKEK, the qualification of the lighter National Infantry Rifle MPT-76-MH has been completed." Demir said in his statement.

Mass production of the MPT-76, which was developed entirely by Turkish engineers within the scope of the Modern Infantry Rifle project carried out under the coordination of the Presidency of Defense Industries (SSB) to meet the modern assault rifle needs of the Turkish Armed Forces, started in 2016. Today, more than 40 thousand rifles, produced and delivered by the Mechanical and Chemical Industry Corporation (MKEK), Sarsılmaz, and Kale, are actively used by the security forces.

While the deliveries are ongoing, development efforts continued in line with the feedback from the field. Initially, MPT-76 weighed 4.2 kilograms; however, MKEK made further improvements on the rifle and reduced its weight by more than 400 grams. Thus, the new MPT-76-MH became approximately 3 kilograms and 750 grams. Following the completion of its qualification process, the lighter National Infantry Rifle MPT-76-MH is expected to be used by the security forces in the coming period.

The National Infantry Rifle (MPT-76), which was produced completely using national resources and without technical support from abroad, passed 42 different environmental tests such as cold and hot air, sand, rain, and mud, all prepared according to NATO standards. The rifle can operate at -40°C and 65°C under pressurized water and mud without malfunctioning. MPT-76 uses 7.62x51 mm NATO bullets, has an effective range of up to 600 meters, a barrel life of up to 12 thousand shots, and has a firing rate of 650 shots per minute.

MPT-76 is currently the best weapon to replace the G3 with. It's a battle rifle, its modern and its coming from an ally.
Other weapons might perform better but they're too expensive or are from countries that might not sell us those.

Dude we can't just select a weapon because it is coming from an ally. If it passes our tests smoothly yes it should come but if not sorry it should not. Just being an ally is not enough.

AK-103s are already being inducted. For regulars too, along side other modern AKs as Panzerkiel mentioned. I saw a particular batch myself recently, as a family member is involved in the procurement program :)

Keep in mind that the G3 and the older AKs, both have to be replace individually. The G3 is our standard battle rifle while the AKs are designated as standard SMGs in the PA (as they were procured to replace MP5s for CQB role in the WoT. MP-5s were not good enough to stop a armored, high on Hash and adrenaline Taliban charging at you apparently) . The AK replacement is already slowly underway, while the G3 replacement is not fully ready.
The most likely G3 replacement will come from within Pakistan itself from POF. The PK-18 was just the first offering, with local option the upside is that the military can give its own specifications and have a gun designed specifically for them. Which is what we might see with the next offering. But in time it will be replaced with whatever suits us best. It’s also a big step in local small arms manufacture that we have to appreciate.

From This Pic, It seems Pak SSG already Using AK103 (PK-21 Version)

Your Thoughts on this Sir?

@Imran Khan @Zarvan @Irfan Baloch @DESERT FIGHTER @PanzerKiel
This is not AK 103.
For a long time now.....
... And they are using some other AK versions as well which aren't publicized or available otherwise or officially procured.... Direct, specific, limited procurements.
The one in picture is not AK 103 Sir.
