The third world gunsmiths were probably Pathans in Dara
Pakistan. This is a village in an outlaw area that technically non
Pakistanis are not allowed.
I have been there. It is a village with workshops and gun
stores on each side of the street. They sell locally produced weapons
and also "imported" weapons. You can buy pretty much everything there.
One interesting thing they make there is the "pen gun". Looks
like a pen and shoots a single 22LR round.
