So I had this FTTH solution at my home that promised 50 Mbps at all times. On a wired network that maybe possible but on wireless with a simple single band router operating in 2.4 GHz and bandwidth hungry apps, Fortnite, PubG, video streaming, smart TVs, Tablets and smartphones it was becoming difficult to balance things. With Covid, things became worse as online classes are being held at home. So a solution was to be found to this dilemma. I hard wired one smart TV, the PS4 was also hard wired, but then the other TV in another room could not get its share of airwaves. Turned out the 2.4 GHz router was insufficient. So I had another dual band router installed. This thing works in 2.4 as well as 5 GHz bands. It has MIMO antennae that promise optimal performance and auto bandwidth adjustment depending on speed requirement. It also comes with a USB port so You can attach a printer to it. So now the printer is also wireless and can be used from anywhere in the house. The dual band router was fixed on a wall at some height, all things backed by UPS power. Now I can get blazing fast Internet, live video streaming and the TV in the other room is showing much better video quality without jerking. So if you are getting Internet issues consider investing in a dual band router. Cheers

CF98 latest model lands in Pakistan
I remember my first CF98 cost me a mere Rs 26000 in 2010. It was in those days one of the most popular pistols in Pakistan. Adequately priced, dependable and aesthetically appealing. It quickly found fame amongst gun enthusiasts as a pistol that “does the job”. It came with a manual decocker safety, a rotating barrel, just all right trigger, metal slide, polymer frame, a decent double stack 15 round mag, miserable fixed sights, just so so finish, but was very popular because of its price and reliability. Not only that it was sleek enough to be carried. Then later after the import ban prices shot up and it would sell for 130k or more. A CF98 mini with a single stack 7 round magazine was later launched that became a hit. Come 2021 the new model has-been launched which reached Pakistan few weeks ago. There isn’t much difference between the two except for the rather thick Magazine baseplate and a slight curve in the grip. This will give a better grip and spruces up the looks. The gun is retailing at Rs 120k to 130k. Enjoy the photos 🙂
I think it will be a decent purchase if the price drops to 90k. Other than that this is an economical, reliable and pretty accurate weapon. Cheers.
POF launching 9 mm pistol in collaboration with Girsan?
Hello. So I got these few photos of a Beretta 92FS which some rumors say is a joint collaboration between Girsan Turkey and Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF) Wah. Sure enough last time it was Sarsilmaz that exported lots of 9×19 mm pistols with POF logo, the Sarsilmaz B6 and ST9. These were hugely popular and there were rumors that POF wanted to make these here. But it didn’t work it for whatever reasons. Now it seems the same story is being repeated with Girsan. How is getting a Turkish pistol with POF logo going to help the local industry? I don’t know. To me this seems like a cheap marketing gimmick, unless POF actually sets up a plant here and makes these pistols. There’s no word as yet about what exactly is the product line up except for a few Beretta 92 FS photos. And if its only a 92 FS then I am a loss to understand POF’s fascination with Beretta 92FS. Do you guys remember the PK9 a local (pathetic) Beretta 92 FS copy that POF launched and was a miserable performer? Well then now you’re going to have another 92FS with POF logo. Both the POF as well as Wah Industries Limited websites are silent about the issue as of now.
Lebedev SP1 lands in Pakistan
Lebedev SP1 is the sports version of the original Lebedev (Russian) 9×19 mm, pistol. The Lebedev was originally called the PL14, later names PL15 and the compact version is called as PL15K. It is a full frame pistol, with ambidextrous safety, slide stop and mag release. The grips are checkered for better grip. The pistol has picatinny rails for attaching flashlight. The front and rear sights are similar to Glock sights and are replaceable with Glock sights. It comes with two 16 round mags with indicator windows. The slide has a red dot mount plate. The grip has cutouts for easier magazine removal. The looks are impressive, it is a sturdy weapon and if one goes by the track record of Russian weapons, I believe this is another winner in the making. Few pieces have landed here in Pakistan and more are still to arrive. Enjoy the photos.
Imports 2020 update 2
Hello. Hope the going is good for you guys. Some Chinese and Turkish pistols have arrived. The prices are kind of crazy. I’m sharing few photos. These are Canik pistols. The shape has changed a lot. Also I have seen accessories like kydex holsters being added which is good. A changed shape is good for buyers as a lot of pistols are being copied in Peshawar and it is at times difficult to make out original from copy. Also included in some pistols is a threaded barrel. Detailed reviews will come later. Prices are like Rs. 180K for Canik.
