Ashani (also known as IOF .32 pistol) is a semi-automatic .32 calibre (7.65 mm) pistol designed and manufactured by the Ordnance Factories Board's Gun and Shell Factory. The pistol is manufactured for concealed carry when permitted.
While the Ashani is externally similar to the Browning 1910, its internal mechanism is based on the Colt 1903. The pistol can be cosmetically modified by changing its magazine, barrel, grip, barrel and magazine release button.
