Hand Made Guns


The above shot was taken during a defense  exhibition held in UAE. Afridi Arms, DAK is just one of the outfits in Darra Adam Khel (DAK), a tribal area in Pakistan.  The main business here is making guns of every kind using conventional machines. It is a handicraft, an art being practiced for as long as one can remember. Hand guns, shot guns, Kalashankofs etc are easily replicated here. Believe it or not, the guns are of good quality.

We had a chat with the CEO.
