Hi PakGuns members

Few months ago, I visit to Daraa and I came across a 12 gauge Pistol, having a single 8 inch of barrel, single shot, Hammer action, single trigger.
These 12 gauge Pistol was made in Daraa.
I don't like the Pistol because it was not made of good or fine quality material.

Have u people ever came across these type of Pistol.
And does any of the 12 gauge Pistol that was Foreign made available in the market and what was their Prices.

Share ur opinions and experiences here.

AA Hunter bro i dare not mention the purpose of these one time usage, disposable 12 bore pistols in and around the tribal belt. they r somewhat famous and do come in handy, but for one purpose only. i better warn u against using them due to their very low quality and almost certainly, if not completely, likelihood of self injury.

on a positive note they r also used by hunters in the area.........

Operating this gun will be insane. Material used in making this is so inferior

The single shot "Kartoos Pistol" is very common in Interior Sindh as it is easily made by blacksmiths i've even tried one out it's loud and kicks like an angry donkey. It's a poor mans SD weapon and is also favored by some Dharails.

Why do you need a 12-gauge pistol?

? Because you can!

? Because it’s a great deal of fun to shoot!

? AND because you will awe and impress everyone at the range when they hear it go off – they’ll all stop shooting & gather around to watch & talk!

The first question they will always ask is “How can you possibly shoot that thing? Won’t it break your hand?” The answer is “No it won’t!”

? If you can shoot a 44 mag, a 2? inch 12 gauge shell in the shotgun pistol will recoil much further up and back but it will be much more of a ‘push’ rather than a ‘sharp slap’ of a 44 mag.

@ MianTaimur, it was hard to belive to see the Beretta pistol like this and yes their recoil have to be crazy due to their short barrel and high velocity cartridge used in it

Good share, but such a short barrel for 12guage is really dangerous at times.... :|

u can also call them .72 magnum single shot pistols for their politically correct name

they were not for hunting any specific animal, just a fungame/backup sort of thing (in literal sense they were mostly considered disposal, one time use weapons). and i saw them with my cousins in South Waziristan.
i did not want to discuss its actual use but Haider Shah bro has already told u. very easy to conceal and very sure to kill ur enemy even with a single shot. u can throw them away and no one in the crowd would know that u carried it.

357 magnum

Just for my info:
As per my knowledge it’s a prohibited weapon. Please correct me if I am wrong.

22-11-2010, 05:13 PM
As per our law any shotgun below then 14 " barrel is prohibited, even no licence is issued for these type of weapons.

23-05-2011, 08:14 PM
the politically correct term is .72 magnum pistol
just like u call a dog a canine american
and an ugly woman aesthetically challanged
