It looks like a simplified version of a Walther blow back type pistol. Should work alright if the metallurgy, machining and the inertia is right.I would like to know more on it myself.

As far as i know this seems to be a double stack magzine copy of Walther PPK. Walther itslef was a verry reliable weapon. Hope Sheikh Arms could match up to the mark.
My only querries are that the workmanship dosn't seem to be that promising. You can see how roughly the checkering on the grip is done. Secondly bluing also dosent appear to be that good and the overall finish is also bit hampered (rough edges at the end of the muzzel) . Hope this improves in the final product. Rest Sheikh Arms truely working to create good weapons.

True Prakalpsingh 16, it already looks like a second hand pistol in allegedly brand new condition. Probably because it may have been handled by many being a proto type or may have gone through a few torcher tests. Not unlike a test drive vehicle.

Hi,
Is there any development in this Sheikh arms STORM pistol. If someone purchased or test fire this 32 revolver action pistol, kindly share your views. I had been trying to find some comparison between new light 007 and this storm pistol but couldn't find much authentic on it
Regards

It would be helpful if manufacturers give details of metallurgy, Barrel rate of twist etc.
the checkering is worsened by being done on soft wood. Too fine. If you can live with that, fine. Else stipple it with a dremel took or , carefully tapping with a sharp and blunt nails. On a backing of rubber mat or some such.

I had seen sheikh arms raptor pistol on youtube which was posted by "guns blog" channel, The Raptor pistol allegedly had faults, or maybe the blogger was using ammunition which had problems, but seeing the videos the jamming, or ejection issues happened very often. So the Raptor pistol has mixed reviews over the internet, The storm pistol in above illustrated image is also manufactured by Sheikh arms which has also made the Raptor and Raptor plus.
