Ashani (also known as IOF .32 pistol)[1] 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.

Design[edit]

While the Ashani is externally similar to the Browning 1910, its internal mechanism is based on the Colt 1903.[citation needed] The pistol can be cosmetically modified by changing its magazine, barrel, grip, barrel and magazine release button.[1]
