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.

Modifying my Lee Enfield No4 Mk1

02-S6300208

Sometime back I bought a Lee Enfield No4 Mk1 rifle commonly called as the, three knot three (.303) rifle here in Pakistan. It is a good weapon of its times, very robust and sturdy. But as far as looks are concerned, its a total looser. I badly wanted to sporterize it, to improve its looks, make it lighter and put a scope on it. So I started work on it, as a project. After some efforts I was able to reduce its weight and spruce up its looks by removing the top portion of front end guard. I also sanded the stock and gave it a coating of linseed oil. The rifle was better looking but not very impressive.
