IOF .32 Revolver (also known as IOF 32 Revolver) is a 6-shot handgun designed and manufactured by the Ordnance Factories Organization in India[1][3] and is meant for short range.[4] It is a 'Break Action' self-extracting revolver[5] and uses the .32 Smith & Wesson Long (7.65mm x 23mm) cartridge.[6] It is based on the Webley Mk IV .38 S&W revolver, specifically the Singapore Police Force version with a safety catch. The smaller caliber was chosen so that it would be legal for civilian ownership under Indian law.

It is priced at Rs.85,652 (ex-Kanpur) due to a lack of competition from private manufacturers.[7]
