Hi Ravishism,
Ashani Mk1 is the earlier model, with an concealed hammer.
Ashani Mk2 is the new model, which you will get now. Am using it, it's sturdy & accurate.
The last you mentioned is the same as these.
Regards.

Rajiv

Re: IOF ASHANI .32 pistol mark 1 modified

Post by drkarthikm » Thu Aug 16, 2018 6:23 pm

Hello guys,
I shot the ashani mark 1 at the range today. It is a good pistol to shoot, very little recoil, no problems with feeding and ejection of the case. It was pretty good on the target at 15 & 25 mtrs.
It was smooth to load but the trigger was little on the heavy side.
But over all it is better than the Mark 4 revolver. which is difficult to shoot and the trigger is very heavy on double action.

got for ashani mark 2 that is modified with fine tuning, any dealer will have the modified one, the one from factory will have some teething issues.

The advantage you get in mark 2 is that it has visible hammer as opposed to concealed hammer in mark 1 and therefore in mark 2 one can determine that the pistol is cocked or not merely by looking at it.

Also in case of a misfire, one can cock the hammer again and give it another try. Sometimes the cartridge that misfired in first hit goes off in second.

The disadvantage that I see in mark 2 is that it's grip is too much thick and the grip safety does not get depressed naturally as it does in mark 1. One have has to make conscious decision to depress the grip safety. This can be fatal in self defense situation.

RFI is better than gsf but RFI doesn't manufacture mark 2.
