Inconvinience is deeply regretted."
I have checked every search engine/site/link etc. etc. but there is no website in this URL or for that matter in any name for GSF Cossipore. Apparently this is a joke being played on the hapless customers by the babus at the GSF. They can afford to play such pathetic jokes on the customers due the GSF's brutal monopoly and strict control on imports. There is a long waiting list of around one and half years to get allotted with such an astronomically priced piece of shoddy workmanship.
The day Govt allows import of fire arms (like pre-1986), I am sure every single applicant will cancell the order placed with the GSF. That day, I will donate my IOF Ashani Pistol (if I get one) to be melted for making latrine buckets for Tihar Jail inmates and buy a world class pistol of my choice. But till then will keep searching for that elusive web site!!!! Is there anybody else who is in a simillar state?
