This is a "military only" weapon system , not meant for us civvies ..... ;)

In fact our army has acquired some of these , i saw one being used in Swat on the tv news .....

or did you mean that in Pakistan it is classified for military use only?

.50 in any form is a PB weapon.

PB license perhaps?

But why would someone want a anti material rifle in the first place?

Thanks Malik Sahib,

Here's another question yesterday i saw a 7.62X39mm (AK round) bolt action hunting rifle with bull barrel. I know Remington and Ruger make bolt action hunting rifles in the caliber also. would this rifle also be considered as a PB?

i think this is more of the sake for information otherwise i doubt the possession of this rifle is not intended. this calibre is prohibited but have heared that in USA civilian can have this fulfilling some of their requirements.

7.2X39 in bolt action can be fetched on NPB in Sind only.

My Pleasure sir! :)

As to the question ; I dont think so.. not PB as per the Arms Ordinance.. however the Government may ban some calibers via special notification.


According to the arms act.. .455 dia is the maximum allowed in bullets (whether handgun, rifle etc)

Semi Auto rifles are not prohibited via the Arms Act.. but by special notification.. (another reason why the barett would be PB)

I am not sure about the current status of the ban on military calibers like .222(5.45), 5.56 7.62 etc.

You may want to check with the Ministry of Interior or the Home Department of your Province for the most authentic information.

@ Sohail

Sir,
Yes this is more for sake of information i just watched the movie shooter (for the 100th time :p) and all of a sudden found myself dreaming about a .50 bmg :)

@MH Malik

Sir,
In sindh province 5.45(.222), 5.56(.223) are mentioned specifically on the license as prohibited. there is no mention of 7.62X39. I will check with MOI on Monday regarding .50bmg and update you on what they say.

You know if sindh govt. SAY that it is not P.B and federal govt. say P.B then federal law prevails. Any license approved for such bolt action will be null invoide. Ban is on caliber as well as on mode of operation also.
