Locally made pistols seized by Indian Army Eastern Command

Pictured are various locally craft-produced pistols recently seized by the Eastern Command of the Indian Army. Some are widely seized indigenous models while others may possibly originate from Pakistan or China.

Above: An example shown alongside improvised .22 rimfire ammunition, a trait more typical of pistols produced by illicit gunsmiths in China.

Above: A widely seized design of semi-automatic pistol produced by gunsmiths mainly in Uttar Pradesh. Along with very bad attempted Beretta markings the laminate flooring company’s logo is still visible on the grip panel.

Above: Note the serial number stamped below the grip panel which judging from the low number could possibly be for the maker’s own reference rather than inflated.

Above: Telltale brazing marks on the slide and frame suggest multi-part construction of main components.

Improvised revolvers:
