POF Eye: Pakistan Corner Shot clone

    These days it seems no defense exhibition is complete without the unveiling of a new Corner Shot clone. The Pakistan IDEAS-2008 expo, which finished today, did not disappointed!

    The POF Eye was purportedly developed in only 6 months by Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF).

    According to Wikipedia, there will be three variants: pistol, submachine gun and grenade launcher.

    While I have always been skeptical about the usefulness of the Corner Shot concept I think a grenade launcher could be very useful, especially in police-type situations using non-lethal ammunition.

    The original Corner Shot also has a 40mm grenade option as well as an “Assault Pistol” (5.56mm M16 pistol) configuration.

    Pakistan joins Iran, who early this year announced a clone, and China whose clone is called the HD66 (scroll down link for photo).

    Thanks to Shoaib for letting me know about the POF Eye.
