POF4 Pistol 9 mm ~ Review

 

The POF4 is an impressive mean looking semi-auto (irreversible) pistol, chambered in 9×19 mm Para caliber produced by Pakistan Ordnance Factories Ltd (POF).

The POF5 as well as POF4 have been classified as pistols because they have a reduced magazine capacity of 15 rounds as against 30, have semi-auto only firing capability (irreversible) and lack a butt stock; thus reducing the weapon’s length also.
