Congratulations! Where'd you buy it from? The last time I checked in the market (which was just a few days back), the TR-02 was selling for about 35k.

@Yalghaari.........Bro, congrats with your new gun, and welcome back to the forum as well. :) And if I'm not very wrong, heck this is your second Akdal Ghost, to the best of my remembrance. ;)

You must be a satisfied customer of this brand, indeed. Let's have some real review of this handgun. Thanks.

The Akdal ghost has a very bad rep in the market. If you are satisfied with your purchase please post a detailed reveiw of it so that some misconceptions can be clarified.

Well, 35K or 50K, whatsoever, we have a member bro here, Yalghari, who now has two of the types, both the TR-01, and TR-02, only problem being that he unfortunately only logs on here on PG once a year, announces a purchase, and then is gone again indefinitely!

@Yalghari bro.......There is a TR-04 out there too, but how about posting a review, Sir, on your present two, we'd like to hear from you before someone from us takes a TR-05! :lol:

any ways good purchase :)

I had to chance to test fire the AdKal Ghost TR2 today at the range and while the TR1 was a POS I'm surprised to say I was quite impressed with the TR2 specially since it's for 32k.

The build quality is quite nice and I was getting good groups with it at 15M, infact first 5 shots were all 9's and 10's. I particularly liked the finish of the grip, very nice. The sights are also adjustable and recoil is not bad at all. The only minus point that I could think of is the trigger but I'm sure that is someone one could get used to. I'm tempted to buy one and play around with it for a few months. If only the damn licenses reopen !

Here are some pictures.

This pistol has natural point ability, I tried 5 shots on rapid as well as I'm a little skeptical about low priced striker fired pistols but it cycled all rounds well.

@Chief........... Nice hearing from you after long, and yes from above "inventory", it seems you have been kind of "cruising" around, as per SA's update! ;) :lol:

Anyhow, above gun has been kind of "black sheep" here on PG, ever since early bad reports on the TR-01, yet from your "playing" around above, one gets kind of tempted to give it a renewed "consideration" again. :)

No one else would be right in giving to it the "natural point ability credit" than you yourself with your vast shooting experience, and it's nice to see this rare credit to it.

In term of looks, it had already baffled many of us, but if you could get some chance to shoot a bit more with it, say some 100 rounds or so, we'd appreciate a detailed review, furthermore kindly be a bit more specific on the "trigger issue", as well as "recoil" which you deem "not bad".

All I know is, that last time you gave credits on my behalf to another handgun, the .45 ACP Taurus 145, it's been one delightful experience to follow your recommendations! ;)

Regards. :)

Abbas bahi thanks for sharing your experience with Akdal Ghost.

Before your post we got very bad response about Akdal Ghost series.....

Well after your feedback we have got another option with CF98 in 30 to 34 k price range.. So would you like to prefare Akdal Ghost TR 2 in 32 k price range.....

Gilani
03-05-2010, 05:29 PM
This is interesting; a positive report from an experienced shooter. I had the opportunity to try a TR1 and TR2. The results, as I have already mentioned, were quite hopeless. Is there some kind of a quality control issue with Ghost guys like we have with our Darra made weapon, one turns out to be very good the next two are lemons? I hope Akdal Arms is not Khyber Arms of Trukey :D

Finally momentum of interest gaining on this handgun, yet guyz, let me say, calm it, Chief cautiously has already mentioned a few issues, and besides there's one heck of a difference in his acquisition of a weapon and ours!

To him, many of even the top liners are 'temporary" play-toys, while for majority of us, it's supposed to be a "keeper", and I'm not quite sure Akdal with this model still is of the standard to be gotten hold of as a "keeper"!

I feel, however, with the evolution from TR-01 to TR-02, and even TR-03 ( not sure, but have heard of one), one final day, the Ghost may attain such a level even, yet at TR-X level, perhaps soon. Hopefully. Chief? :)

+1 AK and Gillani Bhai... For those who want to get something for SD/HD in a limited budget, must go
for something which has consistent reputation regarding reliability and accuracy. For 35k range, I would
recommend CF98 to all such seekers.

Your first post, and you are telling us that this is an accurate gun from 100 yards. Brother, no hangun is accurate at a 100 yards..... because its a handgun.

and please, do not try to sell stuff on PG. Its not allowed for new members and unregistered guns.

reported issues of missfire are wrong.
How can you say that brother? Do you mean to say that the members who reported misfires with Ghost TR1 or TR2 lied or they did not have a clear understanding what a misfire is?

BTW; Sig P226 X6 is my all time dream handgun. Now I may have to change my dreaming pattern because even a Sig P226 X6 is hardly capable of hitting accurately from 100 yards whereas a Ghost TR2 can. Seems I have been watching misguided dreams :rolleyes:

Abbas
07-05-2010, 03:42 PM
Salams all, I've been travelling quite a bit these past few days and haven't been able to check our forum very regularly.

@Slayer I used normal Chinese 9mm's Blue box.

@Gilani Sahib and MIdressTaj InshAllah as soon as I get my hands on one again I will. Weapons are not a problem, licenses being closed are the real pain in the backside. Most of my licenses are so full of entries that D.C office people often register the wrong (old) weapon on it.

@Ak47 and Ilyas Lol :) True, CF 98 is still the choice in 9mm around 32k. Until I've fired about 500 rounds with zero issues with a handgun I would never consider using it for carry purposes and perhaps I'm old fashioned but except Glock I would also feel uncomfortable carrying a striker fired pistol.

@Umer Butt Welcome to PakGuns. Good to see you here.

Lmao at being accurate at 100 yards. I would be quite happy if it gives good groups at 15 M. Perhaps he meant decent accuracy at 100 feet (30 yards).

Also would like to say that the same piece is re branded as Kahr with Made in USA stamping on it. I think they also attempted to Mcguyver an auto switch to it. Asking 65 K which is insane for a 32k pistol.

i have a TR-01 Ghost. Is an excellent weapon. Please do not use Russion wolf or luger rounds. Only chinese or any better quality. I had issues with these rounds. TR-01 was excellent at the range of 100 yards approx. I found it evry accurate, short recoil with a very nice grip. available for 35 k if someone interested please contact me.

reported issues of missfire are wrong. Initially i was told by shop keepers not to buy it since they have low margins on it these days. Once the price goes up they will tell you its the best weapon one can buy.

Actually if pretend to be sweet and innocent they try to off load TR-1s on you by calling them "Turkish glock".

I am new in this hobby. I purchased a new Akdal Ghost TR 02 from Pak Arms F-8 Markaz, Islamabad. Price Rs. 45K. I fired not more than 10 but no problem while firing. Short Recoil. Accuracy is superb. The Shop is near the Court. So Shopkeeper charged further Rs. 1000 for The entry and all documentation. With in 1.5 hr. I got a completely registered Arm in my hands. 9mm bullets (Philippines) Quantity 50 and Price Rs. 3000 (Rs 60/bullet)
Note the bullets were not HP.
The shop owner advised me not to use Chinese or POF bullets in this Handgun.
After 2 days I went to Badaruddin and sons in Rawalpindi where Akdal Ghost TR 01 was available Rs. 40K.

Last week I went Peshawar Where Akdal Ghost Price is very much different . Two dealers told me that Akdal Ghost is available Rs. 35K

In Peshawar the Ammu Rates are very much reasonable. I purchase Philippines HP Quantity 50 at Rs. 3250. (Rs. 65/bullet)
The ammo Chinese and POF very at Rs. 40/bullet. Russian 35/bullet

As am busy these day due to office. So whenever I fired much I will give this forum and detailed info.

Janijan brother, welcome to PG and congrats on your new purchase. BTW, who was the dealer from whom you purchased Ghost TR2 in 45K :o As Faheem has mentioned, Ghost TR2 is available in 33-35 k and a friend of mine bought it in 30 K a couple of months back.

You have mentioned that accuracy was superb. Could you please define it in some tangible terms like the distance from which you fired and the group that you achieved (in inches). Was the group formed close to POA and if it was away from POA, how much?

Please don't mind this barrage of questions. Actually i am quite inquisitive to know the details because it is the second report which describes ghost TR2 as a very accurate handgun. :)

Regarding ammo, IMHO, if a handgun does not fire well with POF, Russian and Chinese ammo, which are the cheapest and most commonly available ammo in Pakistani markets, than this is a very serious limitation and must be kept in mind unless one has some arrangement for free supply of ammo from Federal, Armscor etc :)

Thanks and regards

08-05-2010, 02:50 PM
Yes its second positive & good report from our PG member about Akdal Ghost perfection. so we really want to know about this handgun may be in near future it will be most discussable handgun of Pakgun.

So all experts and specialy Akdal Ghost owners are requested please put some light on this issue and give us details that at what distance they are analysing the perfection of Akdal Ghost and what ammo they are using ? as well as FTF & FTE counts.

probably zawarkhan wanted to write 100 feet. But i agree with him Jani jan and zawar khan. Ghost for its price is very accurate. yes do not use wolf and luger round. otherwise i am using it, had a shoot out at FC range peshawar with baikal, H&k and Glock....it impressed me with its accuracy.

Jani jan that f8 market guy is very expensive. Processing fee is not more than 300 rupees. 9mm phillipine rounds are 45 rupee a Golee in peshawar. And ghost fresh rate in pesh is 30,000.

08-05-2010, 04:25 PM
at approx 50 meters GHOST tr-01 is nicey accurate. You may want to use chines rounds or POF or better ones. No jamming issues and no firing pin issues. Really nice weapon for 30,000 at the moment. But then for 47 k Baikal is an excellent offer currently.

Brother Janijan well I am agree with brother Gilani`s point but only a suggestion it is that as you have already purchased this gun and fired well too so keep it for some more time and give it a chance to make some 200/300 fires if it works ok then you better keep it for long as I understand your main concern is the performance of this gun so better try it befor exchange :cool:

It's quite interesting that Akdal Ghost is performing extremely accurate with few members. May be the ones that I tested were lemons but I am quite interested in seeing few pics / videos of the target results from other members. If the gun is that good than we have another good choice available in a reasonable price, other than CF98.

Dear bothers three of my friends went to lahore to buy pistols, two of them got Akdal Ghosts TR 2 and other went for Baikal vikiing. Akdal cost them 36 k each. 100 rounds of 9mm POF were fired from each. no problems in firing, excellent handling and accuracy. Only one round FTF though it was having a striker mark on base. an ammunition malfunction though.

I am agree 5 days before i went to Kashmir and fired with my Akdal Ghost tr 02 there. This was quite accurate but I also found firing pin weakness.
I fired 39 bullets and out of these 3 FTF. I fired those bullets again.
The distance was about 25 m.
Bullets used POF 9mm.
