Last year I wrote about the poor state of the Indian firearm industry. A government monopoly on manufacture, restrictions on imports and reluctance to issue firearm licenses has resulted in a declining industry.
What I did not know is that while the state factories are churning out poor quality guns, private companies are producing high quality firearms parts for export. One example is INDO-MIM who produce metal injection molded parts. They currently, or have in the past, produced firearm parts for IWI, Sarsilarz, SIG and Meprolight.
If only these companies could produce their own firearms so that Indians would not be forced to purchase exorbitantly priced copies of old designs.
