Huh. The PNP procurement system inducts the oddest bits of hardware. Makes for interesting gun spotting if not sensible logistics.

My guess is that these were license-produced by either POF of Pakistan or MKEK of Turkey (though the latter appears to no longer have it on their product catalog). Any information on the local company that imported the guns?
