The Indian Ordnance Factory .32 Revolver goes for about ₹80-90,000 (including taxes), can't think of any other revolver (in India) which would fall within that price band.

Thankyou so much Mundaire for that quick advise.

You could look at IOF pistol. Personally, I would go for the revolver.

Check the link below for the price list of IOF firearms for civilians.

I just blocked the iof mark 4. I was also stuck with the ashani for a while just because of its compactness.

But I rely on your opinions more . That’s the only reason why I didn’t take a second look.

The pistol is sooo unreliable. They couldn’t even eject the magazine.
Why on earth does that even exist?

IS THE REVOLVER RELIABLE

You could’ve also looked at IOF .22

Isn’t .32 better when it comes to self defence ?

Besides the .32 being a more powerful round, the IOF made .22 revolver is plagued by many problems and is not IMHO a reliable enough piece for self-defence carry.

Cheers!
