.223 options available in Pakistan

Chinese CQA.223 (5.56×45)

Here are some of the .223 (5.45 x 45 NATO) options presently available in Pakistan. These are legit for civilian use being semi-auto only. These can be acquired on NPB license. The top photo is Chinese CQA which is an AR15 style weapon, by Norinco. These may come with barrel extensions.



Saiga.223 comes in two versions, wooden furniture and synthetic stock. The stock is retractable.

Saiga.223 short barrel with wooden furniture.

You can also make your own .223, well actually means get it made by collecting the necessary parts. A lot of companies are making these out of local parts and some with imported parts.
There’s news of Veper .223 coming to Pakistan in near future, so one more option is on the cards soon. It will be interesting to see a few Turkish or American AR15 rifles in Pakistan.

What type is better or best depends on your preferences. AR style can be fitted with a lot of goodies and accessorized for example ACOG, EOTECH sight etc. Some people prefer the AK shape as they find it compact and in some cases reliable. Prices vary from Rs 340k to Rs 400k depending on where you are located and the type you are planning to buy. Hope you find this info useful. Cheers

  1. Aoa. Probably earlier message didn’t get approved. I’m getting a quote on m16A1 around 450k. All original except upper and lower receiver. Do you think it’s reasonable?

    1. Certainly Not
      I have an all original M16A1 in my possession & I’ve hands-on experience with the clone they are pushing in the market
      The upper & lower they machine are heavy to say the least
      Go for a CQA
