    It's just an indian state arms company, they make weapons for the indian military and police. Many of the cops there had BHPs but I here they're going for Glocks now at least in the military. To be honest I don't know much about them except they seem to work for the Jawans all right, yet another benefit of the British empire. Some shooters in India might be able to tell you more, perhaps google a gunboard oriented toward Indian shooters (they speak english/hinglish there).

    IOF MK1A 9mm
    looks to be a straight forward inglis highpower so the external safety will be too small and the trigger will suck unless you take out the mag disconnect safety.

    I have one of their HiPowers. They are essentially a clone of the Candian Inglis version of the pistol. Not beautiful, but a very functional HP variation. The finish leaves a bit to be desired, but they shoot well, and they're cheap.

    I have the Indian Hi Power, which is pretty well made, if you like the old style HP (internal extractor). As has been previously noted, it is basically the Candian Inglis design with some minor differences.

    I paid $300 plus tax for mine, but I have recently seen them for less. Don't pay more than $300.

    I have one as well. It is a Hi-power and it does work, but the machining was done by drunk monkeys with parkinson's. I am swapping out parts to make it functional and in the end it won't be a $300 gun.

    What parts are non-functional?!?
    I did some chamber polishing and replaced the recoil spring. It's been 100% since for over 2000 rnds.

    The slide does not match up with the frame. The sear was diamond-shaped instead of squared. The safety had a massive chunk of casting flash. The ejector hole was off-center. After replacing the ejector, sear and safety, the hammer falls to halfcock with safety engaged. I will have to get an oversize sear and fit it.

    Wow, that's a whole lotta bad road! Did you try to get it back to the dealer? Those problems are way over the line.

    Nah. I'm using it as a learning experience. Interestingly, despite all the problems it is very accurate. Or was, when I shot it - I'm not taking a gun with a malfing safety to the range.
