As he is showing Ring type object, but as I know empty shell must have rim at one side and can't be open from both side...
In the video, the shell has broken from the middle. Half of the the shell has been ejected out and the other half got stuck in the chamber which was later removed by the gunsmith.

Something like in the pic below. This is rifle shell here. Same thing happened in the video with the pistol shell. 33AB744F-249B-45E2-B987-1225ACC7844A.jpeg

Below is a pic of IOF revolver’s cylinder chambers. Just look at the machining marks left inside

Similar is the case with pistol barrel chamber. These machining marks will definitely ‘hold’ the empties.

It’s .32 pistol ammo made by IOF’s ammunition factory.

Price of GSF mk 2 is around 1.50 lac.
Rfi mk 2 at around 1.05 lac is much better and less expensive.

There is no model known as GSF mk 3. To what you are referring as mk 3 is actually a downgraded model of mk 2 as it doesn’t have spring in the grips to flush out the magazine and also it doesn’t have improved bush.

Ashani is copy of Colt model 1903. The only difference is that Colt 1903 has recoil spring under the barrel where as Ashani has spring over the barrel.

This change in the position of spring gives Ashani outer look similar to FN browning pistol model 1910.

You will be surprised to see parts similarities of Ashani and Colt in the video below.

Thank you for your reply vineet ji,
As I visited to arm dealer he showed me GSF mark2 and two pistols (1 black and 1 chrome) on which Mark 3 was mentioned. Models were from 2022. Yes they have push button but no spring machanism for magazine. Had improved hammer, barrel bush I could not checked. But surely it was mentioned as " 2022 3"
Kindly suggest price and it's performance if tested.
Regards

Hammer was exposed and heavier then mark 2, look like as in rfi mark 2. Also barrel bush design was changed, don't know if it was able to eliminate loosening issue or not.
Thanks

Go back and watch this video again. Note that the presenter says that this Ortgies pistol is STRIKER FIRED.

Also note that the grip safety does not work like that of the Colt Pocket Pistol or the IOF which, as Vineet noted for you, is based on the Colt Pocket Pistol. You should note that there is a button on the Ortgies, which functions as both the safety release and the slide release -- this is seen in your posted video where the presenter disassembles the gun.

The video that Vineet provided shows the parts of both the IOF and the Colt Pocket Pistol. Many of the internal parts between the two look similar. You see the hammers of both pistols in this video, making it clear that neither gun is a STRIKER FIRED gun. Instead, having hammers, they are clearly HAMMER FIRED guns.

Just because a gun looks similar to another does not mean that they operate according to the same principle. For example, a Luger looks similar to a Finnish Lahti, an Italian Glisenti, or a Japanese Nambu, but all of these guns are completely different designs.
