IOF .32 Revolver (also known as IOF 32 Revolver) is a 6-shot handgun designed and manufactured by the Ordnance Factories Organization in India and is meant for short range. It is a 'Break Action' self extracting revolver and uses the .32 Smith & Wesson Long (7.65mm) cartridge. 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 around Rs. 85,000/-(INR) due to a lack of competition from private manufacturers.
