    Avoid it like the plague. I will not even use Paki weapons or ammo here. Squib loads, over powered loads, bad metal on weapons it is not worth the risk to your firearm.

    Good luck finding any quantities of .22LR. It's been almost non-existent around here.

    I worked with the Pakistani government for many years and did visit several of their plants and their main ammo plant in Wah, Pakistan. The plants are owned and operated by the government with, at the time, a Pakistani General in charge. From all appearances it was an efficient operation but with questionable production line safety nor did I see any completed product quality inspections. I have fired Pakistani produced weapons and ammo, but only while in country, all fired without a problem. Would I use the ammo? No.........

    I'd stay clear of it. The 9mm MK 2Z ammo is known for unreliable primers and poor performance (squibs). Throw in the fact that it is corrosive and not reloadable (Berdan priming system) and it's just not worth the trouble.

    No never. I am not buying any foreign ammo for any reason. I also reload most of what I shoot and I know my QC is Good.

    I have ammo made in Egypt, Israel, Germany, Bulgaria, Russia, China, England, India..... Have shot a ton of it and never had a problem with any of it. Have never encountered any from Pakistan nor anyone that has so I would be a little cautious till I got reports from some "testers".
