Its been a while since I bought a new handgun. So when the opportunity arose, I said a little prayer and got hold of a new Sarsilmaz B6, 9 mm semi-auto pistol, which is going to be produced by Pakistan Ordnance Factories, Wah in collaboration with Sarsilmaz Turkey. The present lot however, has been imported from Turkey with the POF logo stamped on it, along with the words Sarsilmaz. A small review for my readers….

The POF, Sarsilmaz B6 is a 9mm semi auto pistol which comes packed in a plastic case, containing the pistol itself, an oil bottle, two magazines, two cleaning brushes, a plastic (yikes) cleaning rod and an instruction manual. The quality of all items including the box itself is quite impressive. The frame is made of Black Polymer and even though the handgun is full frame yet it is quite light. Take a look at the specs please:

The box contains all these, not shown is the instruction manual and the plastic cleaning rod.

I have found the finish to be very good. No tooling marks, the gun simply exudes quality. The slide stop and safety are located on the right side. The safety can be easily engaged/disengaged by the thumb.

The front and rear sight consist of one and two white dots respectively. The front sight is changeable and the rear is dovetailed. I intend trying to fit Tru-Dot CZ sights both on the front and rear.

The grip is good. I found it really comfortable holding in both hands.

The pistol can be dis-assembled very easily easily by aligning the two dots on the slide frame and dis-engaging the slide stop. Its very CZish Smile

Here’s a view of the frame innards. Very good quality stuff.

The barrel is Steel forged, chrome lined. Really good finish and the ramp is polished to perfection.

The only downer is this plastic cleaning rod.

Here’s what the guide rod and magazine look like. The magazine has red visual indication for 5, 10 and 15 rounds which really is helpful.

And finally the barrel.

To Conclude: The Sarsilmaz B6 from POF Wah is available in Pakistan for Rs 46k to 50k depending on where you buy it from. It is a good quality and reliable handgun. The bore axis is slightly high and would require practice for the shooter to achieve good results. The Polymer frame means lighter weight. There’s option to go for 17 round magazine thus having good capacity. The finish of internal as well as external parts is very good and I haven’t been able to find any burrs. The barrel life is 25,000. With a 3 dot sight system its easy to aim and shoot. It is based on the CZ 75 design so this explains its reliability. The Sarsilmaz B6 from POF Wah offers very good value for money. I will update the post after visiting range and shooting with this handgun.

      1. B6 is based on the CZ75 platform so some CZ75 holster should fit. But depending on where you live you can look for a good quality holster. If in Rawalpindi, try Shams Saddlers in Saddar, they make custom holsters on order. Or Gown House on Murree Road, they do have a good collection ready to use. If you’re in Karachi go to Lucky Star, there’s one (Hussain) from Saddlers who makes very good quality holsters.
        Cheers

    1. Yes. Depending on the city. In Peshawar and Lahore prices are lower, as compared to Karachi. Actually the dealers jack-up the price. I would suggest you to get it from POF directly.

      BTW why don’t you get the license converted to All Pakistan?

    1. Yes but this is imported from Turkey by POF. They have stamped POF logo on it. It was perceived that production would start soon but later it was cancelled because Sarsilmaz asked POF to place a minimum order of 20,000 plus handguns. So the deal broke down. At least this is the story I know. Nevertheless a good handgun at a very good price.
