Sheikh arms are famous thugs from UP. Think thousand times before giving koney to book the weapon. You may lose your money and never get a weapon

Well if it helps you then as per a recent video on youtube they are promising to deliver weapons to those who pre-ordered within a week or two max.

Webley revolver is ready to roll out. GOt the pic from the dealer..but pistol is not even in production. Glock will definitely take a long long time. Raptor is outright expensive with a shortage of cartridges.

Recently saw a picture on facebook, about verma gun house owner getting the delivery of raptor pistol.... Which means he had booked it in early days when the started just the booking,
On the otherside whenever asked by our arms dealers most of them always denied it will be there, & then u see getting the earliest delivery because of their pre-bookings :lol:
Kudos to them :lol:

It’s good that Raptor has been launched. Although there is no immediate relief to us gun lovers who have been suffering due to import ban as Raptor stands nowhere in quality when compared to H&K, Sig, Glock, Beretta but chances have increased that we may get good handguns sooner or later.

Yess, vineet ji we all know that quality of raptor isn't comparable to international brands, but launch of raptor is the first step on the path of modern guns in india, a path which most people think doesn't exists....
It shows that within a few years the gun market of india is going to drastically modernize and diversified,
As untill now most gun shop owners used to say it's all just talks just buy iof, nothings gonna happen.... Now this launch makes us believe that we would also get better quality weapons if not today but in near future

I believe quality will only improve when reputed international companies will come in.

In India, private companies have been manufacturing sxs guns from decades but there is no quality. Now even pump action guns are being manufactured but quality is very bad.

Atleast now people will have option of not buying old ww1 and WW2 weapons. It's a irony that a country as poor as ours people buy weapons at the highest price in the world and then also they are buying decades old weapons.

The million dollar question on the Raptor is, where has this been proofed?
Does this company have any design approval?
Do any of the members know the process to get a firearm approved for sale?

Most intriguing what is going on, with Sheikh Arms, however I would not touch this Pistol with a barge pole. It more like a Darra made firearm.

Three types of licenses can be granted on Form VII of Arms Rules 2016.
1. Manufacture
2. Proof test
3. Manufacture and Proof test

Either Sheikh Arms have proof test license (less likely) or they have got proof testing done by IOF (more likely)

Indian companies manufacturing sxs guns from decades have been getting proof testing done by IOF.

‘Approval for sale’ is part of Manufacturing license. Maybe initially they need a permission but once approved they don’t need it time and again.

For example if someone has gun shop license then he doesn’t need permission each time he sells or buys a weapon.

Video of firing of raptor, it doesn't show any details about range or accuracy..... But atleast it shows one can shoot a full mag. Without any jams :stupid:
