It looks far better than an IOF .32 Pistol.
Hope the performance is also good.
Magazine Release, Slide, Safety etc. should all function smoothly.
It is double action, judging by the photos.
Hope the slide locks, when magazine is empty.
The Pistol does seem rather big for a .32 Bore.
This maybe because of the Double Stack Magazine which would hold 14 Cartridges.
With the limitation on the Cartridge quota in India,
Emptying 4 Magazines would exhaust the entire years quota.
Personally never understood why in the Indian self defence context,
One would require more than 6/8 Rounds.
Ventilated Rib on a Shot-Gun makes sense.
I doubt the function will be of any use on a Hand-Gun in India.
We don't get to shoot that many Rounds continuously, that the barrel will heat up.
Though the Rib definitely adds to the aesthetic value.

Regards,
Jr.

Its range will be higher but new modified pistol of IOF is easier to carry and is good up to 30 meters the revolver I have of IOF of FGK never gave me any problems only issuse is bad amno and lack of service .New heavier bullet after 2017 of KF will not fit into imorted revolver .The seikh armoury is also manufacturing revolvers owner told me u will forget imported and keeping it secret will start sale after june.

"... double action, judging by the photos"

Looks single action to me
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.

Hi,

Are members aware or have come across other private arm manufacturers other than sheikh arms? Since the civilian arms manufacturing license is open to private players there must be others who would have joined the fray by now. As for sheihk arms he doesn't seems to have any past reputation though he seems to be in this business.

seikh is into business for a long time although in manufacturing he is new comer he is an expert but there r others also but he is firsrt to get license .But real test when weapon is test fired and how his own amno works .Some private manufcturers amno worked so bad except for Shaktiman in 12 bore catergery even KF 12 bore in special causes barrell lock due to dirty powder.He is also manufacturing 12 bore amno and 12 bore guns although in this field famous mandi gun manufactuers r already doing nice job.Mandi gun is still very famous in Himachal and among army men as private weapon .

Hi,
I spoke to my dealer and he told me that the production is yet to start and booking to be online minus gun dealer. Also he cautioned not to pay any advance and opt only in case of payment against delivery.

Do members know others who have got licences & have or going to start arms production?

Their quality is very low and price is very high. IOF is better than these privately made handguns. As per my sources, Sheikh hired some private shotgun making guys from Jammu to make these pistols. Will post pics....

How difficult is it these days to reverse engineer a firearm? The fellow probably wants to make money with negligible investment.

Yes...how difficult is it these days to reverse engineer? My dealer cautioned me not to deal with this chap from nahan though not in many words. He will loose first mover advantage if he comes with shoddy products.
