IOF Hi Power reviews

Post by Sakobav » Fri Jul 14, 2006 5:44 pm

I am pasting a link to discussion on IOF 9 MM Hi power. Couple of interesting things (1) Never knew you could buy one of these in West especially "Gander Mountain" kind of stores (2) They claim its copy of Inglis Canadian make (3) Read the last message " gun was machined by drunken monkey" :lol: so much for ISO9000

IOF PISTOL AUTO 9mm 1A

Post by The Doc » Wed Mar 07, 2007 6:44 pm

Today I was going through the pruducts list of IOF and I found IOF PISTOL AUTO 9 mm 1A. Now is this 9mm pistol for civilians or is it only for the armed forces ?If for civilian use how much does it cost?

Orthopod,
9 MM being a PB,it's issue is restricted to the Armed and Para military forces.
Thanks

9mm luger/para is a PB.License for which is issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs,GOI.It's granted on the following grounds:-

1.The licensee has owned the firearm for a specific period of time and he/she wishes to transfer it to his/her legal heir.

2.To an Armed Forces oficer issued a PB firearm before 1984.

3.The firearm was accquired through inheritance.

4.To a person under some specific threat and whose application is supported by a report of the SP,testifying to the threat and that the applicant can't reasonably protect himself/herself with a NPB firearm.

So while a 9mm pistol is a PB firearm,there are people who have a license for them.Mostly Luger's but also some Walther P 38's.These are from the good old days when licenses for PB firearms were issued by SDM's. IOF however does not sell either the 9mm pistol or ammo to civilians. It only sells .38 revolver ammo in the civilian mkt.

Zeroing in a 9mm IOF pistol

Post by mismisra » Tue Sep 18, 2007 7:51 pm

We do have a lot of hand gun buffs. Would somebody attempt to tell me how do you zero a 9mm pistol (IOFB made)

Attach a laser sight if you have one and zero that. Handgun sights cannot be adjusted or zeroed in most models. Shoot at a target in a range at 10 m and see how a 5 shot clip groups. Mind you a 9 mm Luger or other 9 mm guns are not easy to control. If not a match grade pistol a casual shooter is likely to encounter at least 8 inch groups initially from a short barreled pistol ( 3 to 4 inch barrels ). Post pictures of the group. Aim at 6 O clock and shoot stedely with mental concentration. Use both hands to grip first few weeks.

Have fired the IOF version among others incl Beretta 92 ,they cannot be zeroed.

Any hand gun with fixed sights cannot be zeroed,and for what.Zeroing is usually done at longer ranges

around 100 mts for rifles.

MM, assuming you're in the military, and assuming you are talking about the IOF 9mm, the front sight is dovetailed onto the frame with varying degrees of tightness. Best would be to get your unit armorer to help you drift adjust it... that is if there is a suitable tool. Sights can be adjusted, if at all, only for windage and not elevation. The distinct hump that cradles the rear sight would suggest that it would be adjustable, but it apparently is not.

Anyway, at the kind of distances and circumstances that pistols are meant to be used, barring target pistols, factory zero is adequate and re-zeroing a meaningless exercise.

Hi CC you guessed right and your kind suggestion is acceptable what does one do about the production scatter. We also use the same pistol one hell of a monster to say the least as the first step to competetion shooting

Thats what happens when newbie doesn't post intro :roll:

Hi Mismisra,

Can you please post your intro or point me to one if you already posted (though I already searched but couldn't find). This is basic etiquette when you join some new forum or a group of people.

Since the IOFB made 9mm is basically a copy of the Browning Hi-power (Inglis)... I would suggest you go to www.brownells.com or some place similar and order micrometer adjustable rear and matching front sights... If you are really serious about using the pistol for any paper target shooting, that is...

I am not really sure how much accuracy can be squeezed out of this particular gun, but I am sure it can certainly be made to shoot more accurately than in factory standard form - by replacing certain parts, like the barrel, locking lug, etc. with imported ones... Not sure if you will be able to import those parts though...

Cheers!
